Freiburg im Breisgau is a university town in the stunning Black Forest region of southwest Germany. The city is known for its sunny climate and numerous parks and gardens, and its charming Old Town is a tangle of cobbled lanes and picturesque buildings, lined by the shimmering River Dreisam and dominated by Freiburg’s impressive cathedral. The city is a haven for outdoor lovers, with many hiking trails, cycling paths, and ski slopes in the surrounding hills. But there’s also plenty of culture, from the local beer festivals and Christmas markets to the lively arts and music scene. And, of course, there’s the food – Freiburg’s restaurants serve up an array of authentic regional dishes, from Black Forest ham to Flammkuchen.
