The highest mountain in the country, Zugspitze will easily become one of your favourite places in the world. At 9,700 feet, this peak is covered in deep snow almost half the year. At the top, the sensational panorama opens up to reveal legendary views of 400 mountain peaks in four countries! Besides the epic scenary, Zugspitze offers an igloo village, the highest ski resort, two toboggan runs and the country’s highest beer garden.
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!
