Discover the Black Forest capital during this self-guided Tour

On this self-guided Tour of Freiburg we follow the course of the Bächle as the medieval little canals running through the old town are called and discover the small lanes and impressive building alike. You will be enchanted with stories and tales ranging from the founding fathers of the city, the dukes of Zähringen, to the challenges of a modern city striving to become a green and sustainable community.

Under the rule of the House of Habsburg, Freiburg became a powerful stronghold of Europe’s most important dynasty in the southwest of Germany and the Black Forest. The university founded in 1460 and the gothic cathedral with its majestic tower still bear witness to the heyday of Freiburg which was already back then a top city to visit in Germany.

From the town hall past the late medieval house to the whale and on to the lesser known corners of the old town like the picturesque tanner’s quarter, this walking tour covers the historic city centre of the Black Forest capital in depth. Come with us on a journey through 900 years of our captivating city at the foothills of the Black Forest.
