Freiburg im Breisgau is the most Southern City in Germany. Freiburg is not only known for its almost southernly charme but also for its Albert Ludwigs University, the Münster and the Bächle. Located at the foot of the Schauinsland, its own mountain of the black forest Germany, Freiburg im Breisgau is sheltered from the bad weather coming in from the East and enjoying more sunshine hours than any other city in Germany.
Why Freiburg im Breisgau?
Not far from the railway station, or Hauptbahnhof as the Germans call it begins the Altstadt. And the Freiburg Altstadt is where your private guide will show and explain almost 900 years of history. Meeting point for the Freiburg im Breisgau tour is the Rathaus or townhall as it is called in English. From here your private guide will lead you along the narrow lanes and Freiburger Bächle. You will hear about their history and legends surrounding them. Moving along these picturesque lanes you will see sights like the Augustinerplatz, the “Alte Wache” to name only two. But the highlight of all Freiburg sightseeing tours will come into view upon entering the catherdral square. The Münster as Freiburg cathedral is offically called has been the seat of a roman catholic bishop since 1827. You will visit this amazing church with your guide. Your Freiburg Walking Tour ends outside the Münster where you also find the local market.
