Fun Times in Freiburg

Anyone visiting Germany’s Black Forest region must visit the happening university town of Freiburg. Freiburg is noted as being the sunniest and warmest in Germany (it holds the all-time record temperature of 104 F.) but on a wet fall weekend those warm temperatures are long gone.img_2799img_2808

We recently visited Freiburg for the second time since we’ve lived in Germany and we made some cool discoveries. First, a top place to eat is the Markthalle, a combination market and food court, right in the heart of town.

The Markthalle is a terrific place to eat, meet, and drink, and on weekends, there’s live entertainment. We were on hand to hear the “Redhouse Hot 6” who weren’t bad for a local band.img_2792

Another re-discovery was the local favorite watering hole, Hausbrauerei Feierling, always a crowd-pleaser.


Our home for three days was the Novotel, near the train station and adjacent to the performing arts center. Novotels, generally, aren’t what you’d call charming places to stay but they’re consistent and comfortable. img_2809

    As always, enjoyed your comments and photos. Keep them coming. Would love to go there someday. I think my niece was there for a while.

  3. It sure doesn’t look sunny and warm! But that said, it does certainly have a lot of curb appeal. Next time it will have to be a must-see.

    I understand that congratulations are in order for Tanya! How long do you expect the retirement to last this time? Long enough for a world cruise?
