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.
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.
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.
Here’s a sampling of Freiburg photos:
