Exploring Freiburg im Breisgau

Looking for a classic German destination where you can relax and recharge? Come to Freiburg im Breisgau. Nestled in the heart of the Black Forest, this lively city is just across the border from Alsace and right next to Europa-Park, Germany’s biggest theme park. With its cultural treasures, beautiful walks and many leisure activities, there’s always something to do.

And why not visit another German city along the way? Stop in Offenburg to explore the pedestrian city centre, stroll along its charming avenues and explore its cafés and old-fashioned shops—or head to nearby Gifiz Lake for swimming and water sports.

And don’t miss Lahr/Schwarzwald and Emmendingen, two cities with classic German charm on the edge of the Black Forest.
