Interesting information about Freiburg

Why Freiburg? Sitting right at the foot of the Black Forest’s dense wooded slopes and ...
vineyards, Freiburg is a laid-back, sunny, cheerful university town that boasts the sunniest and warmest weather in all of Germany. The city is known for its medieval Gothic buildings and Renaissance university, but also for its high standard of living and advanced environmental practices. In this beautiful picturesque town you'll encounter gabled townhouses, cobble-stoned streets and cafe-rimmed plazas as well as numerous spas and the famous cuckoo clocks which have been produced in the region since the 1700s. After you have enjoyed this merry little town, go and explore the depths and unrivalled beauty of the neighbouring evergreen Black Forest. As deep, dark and delicious as its famous cherry gateau, the Black Forest gets its name from its canopy of evergreens. With deeply carved valleys, thick woodlands, luscious meadows and timber farmhouses it looks like a scene straight out of a kids' bedtime story. Wandering on its many miles of forest trails you'll encounter wispy waterfalls and grand idyllic lakes, timber farmhouses and more jaw-dropping natural beauty than you could ever imagine.
