Germany’s largest market square

Hidden gems: Waldcafé, a rustic forest cabin ca. 2 km from Freudenstadt, offers homemade Black Forest specialties - after a hike over Kienberg or a bike tour over Zwieselberg and Kniebis, this is just what you’ll need - for mountain air makes one hungry. Special around Christmas: Forest Christmas with small sales stands around Waldcafé.
