The warmest spot in Germany.

Freiburg stands for sun, as the university city in the Black Forest is the sunniest city in Germany. And to cool off, the streets of Freiburg have lots of “Bächle”, which are small channels filled with crystal-clear water. Simply dip your feet in them. Especially after a walk to the Schlossberg.

Get some sun and cool off in the “Bächle”? Something that just goes hand in hand in the old university city.

Black forest

The forest that isn't that black. Yet it harbours a few secrets. There are still supposed to be Black Forest gnomes here.

The city is world famous for its sophisticated casino and even the Romans came here to relax.

“We manage to get along with each other on the courses in a peaceful, happy and tolerant manner – so you think to yourself: it's not that difficult and it must be possible for the rest of the world to manage!”
