Black Forest Capital.

Hidden gems: A majestic view over the city is to be found at Greiffenegg Schlössle. Summer is particularly nice for sitting in Kastaniengarten, one of the most beautiful and oldest beer gardens in southern Baden. Watch the sun slowly sink into the horizon over a freshly poured beer or a glass of wine.



Soaked in the sun and full of life - that’s how Freiburg welcomes its guests.
