Freiburg im Breisgau
Capital of the Black Forest
In the heart of a major wine-producing region, Freiburg im Breisgau serves as the primary entry point for tours into the scenic Black Forest mountain range. An old university town, the city was incorporated in the early 12th century. It quickly developed into a major commercial, intellectual, and ecclesiastical center of the Upper Rhine region. Freiburg is best-known for its medieval university and minster (a former monastery church), as well as for its high standard of living and advanced environmental practices. The nation's sunniest and warmest city, Freiburg is a paradise for hikers, cyclists, and those looking for a relaxing holiday. Thanks to its outstanding connections via rail and road to the surrounding regions, the city makes for a relatively inexpensive base from which to explore much of central Europe. Freiburg im Breisgau is in Baden-Wurttemberg. Plan the details of your Freiburg im Breisgau holiday and any onward adventuring with our easy-to-use Germany tour itinerary planning tool.
