Renowned for its sunny climate, Freiburg Im Breisgau is one of Germany’s best kept secrets. Nestled on the edges of the sprawling Black Forest, Freiburg Im Brisgau is filled with gorgeous medieval architecture, lush green spaces and culinary treats that make it the perfect place to holiday.
Freiburg Im Brisgau is home to a range of breathtaking architecture, many of which are coincidentally coloured red. There’s the Freiburg Münster, a 14th-century Gothic cathedral with a towering spine in Münsterplatz, the city’s largest square. There’s also the Whale House, a large Gothic building in the old town made famous by the 1970s horror film ‘Suspiria’, and The Historical Merchants' Hall.
Freiburg Im Brisgau is surrounded by hills and covered with parks and offers plenty of outside activites. The Freiburgh Botanical Garden is a definite highlight, as is the Schlossberg, a tree-lined hill that offers sweeping views of the city. If you’re up for something more adventurous, check out the nearby Black Forest for a hike through stunning natural landscapes.
Food lovers will simply adore Freiburg Im Brisgau. The city boasts many culinary highlights including Markthalle, a 19th-century building packed with foods from around the world. Take your pick from Japanese, Italian, French, Indian, Brazilian and Middle Eastern cuisines, or perhaps try something quintessentially German.
