Freiburg, the city near the Black Forest
In front of the Freiburg Cathedral, a Gothic cathedral with a walk-in church tower once called "the most beautiful tower on earth", is the center of the medieval old town, the Münstermarkt. Famous sights are the Martinstor and the Schwabentor, which used to be the gates in the city wall around medieval Freiburg. Since the Middle Ages, little creeks have been flowing through the streets of the Old Town, providing welcome refreshment on hot summer days and effectively improving the climate in the city center. South of Freiburg lies the Black Forest, known for its dense forests, cuckoo clocks and the Black Forest cherry cake. On the Schauinsland, Freiburg's local mountain, you have a view that can reach as far as the French Vosges mountains on a day with good visibility.

I used to find learning German really difficult and I tried lots of different things. But on the language course at the Goethe-Institut, I suddenly started making rapid progress.
