"Lovely Old Town Freiburg" Freiburg im Breisgau by JetlagCity
Freiburg im Breisgau Travel Guide: 418 reviews and 1,093 photos
Freiburg is an old university town on the edge of the Black Forest. It used to be a walled town in the Middle Ages and you can still see two of the gates to the town. This one, St. Martin's gate, is in the historical Old Town section, which was a pleasure to walk through.
There are waterways cut into the streets for water to run through in the summertime. They used to be (and perhaps still are) used for cooling off. I bet that running water is a nice addition to the feel of downtown on a hot summer day.
Look at what I came across! It's not everyday you'll find an orange and white striped zebra in a downtown window : )
A Small Tip for English speakers looking for a book to read on the flight home - two of Freiburg's bookstores have a section of books in English.
This is one of the big highlights of the city - check out this fantastic woodwork and the organ pipes.
