The small palace on a hill west of the old town was built for a noble widow, Countess Maria Colombi, around 1860. The neogothic architecture was designed after English models by architect Jakob Schneider. The palace now hosts the archaeological museum.

The hill used to be part of the city ramparts before. Its slopes have been turned into a small pretty park. As there is not much green in Freiburg?s centre, this is a welcome place to relax.

The southern slope has been turned into a small vineyard with educational purposes. The Institute of Viticulture have planted the vines and put up some information boards that explain a bit about viticulture.

Location: corner Rotteckring/Eisenbahnstraße. You will pass here when walking from the train station to the old town.
