Best things to do in Freiburg and sightseeing in Freiburg
Dreisamstraße - Freiburg
Tiny Dreisam river passes through the city and the locality around it is quite artistic. You can see some old buildings, some musical streets close to it. A unique feature of Freiburg is the Bachle (Kanal), which used to be sewer canal most probably during older days. But the city still preserves it and you will be amazed by the kind of feel it gives to the town.
Martinstor - Freiburg
A few minutes walk from the hbf will take you city's oldest gate, Martin's gate. Apparently, it is there since the 13th century. However, a distasteful McDonald sits on the right, the view of this avenue is utter pleasure. Colors packed in so well in such a tiny space.
Münster - Freiburg
Freiburg was created out of the old German region of Schwabia, and in the place of a church (since 12th century) a cathedral has been there in the heart of the city. Muenster (Minster) was constructed over 3-4 decades, and the style changed from Romanesque to Gothic over a period. It is one of the most beautiful cathedrals, at least from inside. The collection of stained glasses is enormous, and rarely will you find such intricate and huge ones.
Schlossberg - Freiburg
Since 11th century, Schlossberg of Freiburg has been there. There was a fortified castle on the top of the hill, which is beautifully surrounded by greenery. You can climb up the hill to see the turm (tower). However while you do that, keep your eyes turned down to the city of Freiburg. From the top, around 450m, you can see most of the town and the surrounding forest. Breathtaking, I can tell you!
