The city of Freiburg im Breisgau sits austerely on the edge of the Black Forest. Home to one of Germany’s oldest universities and a Gothic sandstone cathedral, it’s a hub for academics and medieval history buffs. Chug German suds at a local brewery, then hop a cable car up Schauinsland mountain, where astounding views and a solar observatory await.

Honestly, I have been in hundreds of cathedrals in Europe and this one isn't very unique. However, if you are here, you should still step inside. The windows are nice and the colored entrance is nice as well.

This 'zoo' mostly houses farm animals, but has some other more exotic species. All animals have lots of space and good living conditions. The zoo itself is very spread out and feels a bit dead. That being said, entry is free and it makes a nice afternoon if you are looking for something to do.

This town square, built next to and named after Freiburg's famous Cathedral, is still a major center of the city's social activity.
This is a lovely place to walk around. Many interesting historical sites and shops just around the corner . Truly enjoyable .

A collection of small picturesque streams that line many of the streets of Freiburg.
These fresh water channels (some small, some larger) are found throughout the old city. Dating to the 13th century, they were originally used for water supply and firefighting. Threatened with removal on several occasions, the residents' fondness for these historic remnants won out. Just watch your step!

My usual running route, or at least it was until I moved, have run at all times of the day and visited back with friends. See Park is lovely and very beautiful. Maybe it's not needed as a tourist in Freiburg, but as a local/student I think it would be a popular hang out zone.

This is just one of many scenic, picturesque buildings in Freiburg... they seem endless and this town is definitely somewhere you can easily spend hours wandering around.

One of of the two remaining medieval towers; this one at the end of the main shopping street and very nice to look at except as you get closer you see, on both sides, the very prominent “McDonalds” on the adjoining arch. Really? How did the city zoning officials allow that, and why would McDonald’s want to so commercialize a medieval tower. In my view, unacceptable and a real negative.

I went here with my friend, she is from Freiburg and she recommended it.
The atmosphere was wonderful, however a bit crowded and you do have to take a while to look for a seat. The food was all relatively cheap and there is a massive selection of food that will suit anyone's needs.
I definitely recommend to anyone who is in the city and wants some cheap but very filling food.

Located in one of Freiburg's largest public squares, this building houses the city's municipal government.
This attractive building is not as old as it looks, having been rebuilt after the 1944 bombings in its earlier style which certainly complements other historic buildings in Freiburg. It was initially completed in 1901 by modifying a Renaissance semi-detached house in Rathausplatz and is now connected to the old 1559 Town Hall by another central building. The Tourist Information Centre will be found here.
