Welcome to Freiburg!
Freiburg is one of the most beautiful and attractive cities in Germany. It is small enough to make you feel at home right from the first day and at the same time it's big enough to be lively and international. More than 900 years of tradition and modern life are linked in perfect harmony.
Being a university town, Freiburg offers a wide variety of cultural events and attractions such as theatres, concerts, ballet, modern dance, music festivals, museums, exhibitions ...there should be something of interest for everyone. The town is dominated by students - and their bicycles! Freiburg is also known as the "ecological capital" and environmental consciousness is of major significance here. Due to its many solar energy projects, Freiburg is also called the "solar city".
Freiburg is ideally situated in the Black Forest, very close to France and Switzerland, inviting many interesting trips. The mild climate is another bonus; Freiburg enjoys the most days of sunshine and the warmest temperatures of all German cities.
The four nearest airports are - Frankfurt (2 hours), - Stuttgart (2 hours) , Basel/Mulhouse (Switzerland/France, 1 hour) and Zürich (Switzerland, 2 hours).
