The quaint city of Freiburg has long been a popular destination. This charming city is located in the Black Forest of southwestern Germany. Freiburg enjoys its title as the warmest city in Germany, thanks to over 2,000 hours of sunshine per year. Indeed, the temperate climate makes outdoor activities such as hiking and cycling ever more attractive. Enjoy breath-taking views from the nearby Schlossberg Hill, which is linked to Freiburg by a funicular, or use public transport to go atop the Schauinsland peak.
The city is a gem in and of itself. Freiburg's beautifully reconstructed medieval Old Town is like something out of a fairy tale with cobblestone lanes and gabled houses. The Gothic cathedral towers over the market square with its 116m spire. Freiburg is truly a city to experience, and you can get there quickly and affordably with Deutsche Bahn.
