City Introduction

Freiburg is a city in the southwestern German state of Baden-Württemberg, and it is known as the warmest and sunniest of the larger cities in Germany. Freiburg is an old city that has been known for centuries as a university city and the seat of an archbishop. Freiburg continuously developed under changing rulers, while most of the city center was destroyed by bombing during World War II and then rebuilt.

Today, Freiburg is a well-visited tourist city that has a cozy city center with several attractions. You can start at Münsterplatz square, where you can see Freiburg’s large Gothic cathedral from the 13th-16th centuries and the old trading house from around 1520, the Historisches Kaufhaus. Close to this you can walk another of Freiburg’s cozy squares, the Rathausplatz, where the city’s old town hall faces the large church, Kirche St. Martin.

Freiburg was formerly surrounded by walls, and today in the city streets you can see two of the old city gates, Martinstor and Schwabentor. Schwabentor today rooms a museum, and in the street Oberlinden by the gate you can see Zum roten Bären, which is considered to be Germany’s oldest hotel. In and around the Altstadt there are also several other museums such as the Augustiner Museum and the Archäologisches Museum Colombischlössle.

You can easily visit the forested mountains of the Black Forest, which starts on the outskirts of Freiburg. There are many routes and cable cars in the beautiful mountains and also other possibilities to get up in the heights. From the Stadtgarten park by the old town, you can, for example, take the Schloßbergbahn up 73 meters to the Schloßberg, from where there is a beautiful view over the center of Freiburg and the city’s surroundings.
