This is a photo of one of the pedestrian streets of Freiburg’s downtown. Having lived in Berlin for years where I got used to the ugliness of the city, wandering through Freiburg’s downtown is a beautiful and pleasant experience. Stoned paving, traditional houses, local shops and markets…
I took this photo from the peak of the Rosskopf mountain. We hiked up to there for 7 Km and the views were worth the effort. On one side you can see Freiburg, and on the other side you can see the beginning of the Black Forest.
Platz der Universität
One of the days we walked through one of Freiburg’s squares, and there were summer concerts taking place. There were a lot of people hanging out listening to the concert, and many kids playing around a fountain in the middle of the square. It was a beautiful summer night.
Martinstor is the older of the two gates of Freiburg’s fortification. I took this photo one day that I woke up early to go for a 7-Km run along the river.
One of the days it was sunny and warm so we decided to go to Flückigersee, a city lake that you can reach in around 20 minutes by tram. Compared to the city lakes that I’m used to in Berlin, this was much better: less crowded, cleaner water, and more grass areas. I had no plans to swim but I could not resist.
We went to Bötzingen for a baptism we were invited to. The city is located around 20 minutes from Freiburg by train. Although we spent most of our time in the celebration, we used some spare time to wander around the city and appreciate its beauty. Here are some photos that we took during that walk.
The last day of our trip we did a hike in Kaiserstuhl, an hills area in the region of Baden-Württemberg that it’s well-know for its vineyards. We ended up having a delicious dinner paired with a local white wine. A must-visit if you are in the area.
