Make a self catering apartment or holiday rental in the Freiburg area of Germany your home away from home

Freiburg is the hub of the Breisgau region of the beautiful Black Forest, in the Upper Rhine Plain. Surrounded by vineyards and steeped in history, this lovely area is the sunniest and warmest in Germany.

Things to Do in the Freiburg Area of the Black Forest

With its scenic natural beauty and sunny climate there are plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy from a holiday rental in the Freiburg area of the Black Forest. Hiking, cycling, climbing, nature-spotting, painting and photography are a great way to appreciate the delightful architecture and rolling hills of this area. Take the longest-running cable car in Germany from Gunterstal up the Schauinsland Mountain – a 3.6 km ride. Sports enthusiasts can watch SC Freiburg play a home match at the Badenova Stadium or the local ice hockey team play at the Franz-Siegel Halle. The wineries in the area are worth visiting if only to sample some of the sweet wines produced in this area. In Freiburg itself there is a local Feierling brewery with a biergarten for sampling local German ale.

Places to Visit Around the Freiburg Area

The Munster or Cathedral is the heart of the historic city centre of Freiburg. With its towering spire it dates back to 1200AD. The Gothic Merchant’s Hall is another fabulous highlight and is covered in statues and coats of arms of the Hapsburg Emperors. The Old City Hall with its painted exterior is another must-see and dates back to 1559. East of the city, take a trip on the funicular railway up Sclossberg Hill to view the ruins of the castle. The extensive views of the area are well worth the effort. The Triberg Waterfall is one of Germany’s largest with a drop of 496 feet. It is just a short drive from Freiburg holiday rentals, along with the Black Forest Museum and the baroque pilgrimage church of Maria in der Tanne.

Weather in the Freiburg Area

Holiday rentals in the Freiburg area are in what is known as the warmest and sunniest spot in Germany. Summer days average 25°C (77°F) while winters drop below freezing at night for several months. The area has rainfall at any time of year which falls as snow in the winter months.

The nearest major airport is EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg (BSL/MLH) which is located about 6 km northeast of Basel and 70 km south of Freiburg, although it is actually in France.

Peaceful, spacious, clean and comfortable

4 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay. The apartment has easy access to public transport into Freiburg. There is a small supermarket, bakery and a health food shop within five minutes walk. Gasthof Kreuz has an excellent menu and lovely garden.

Immaculate property that is very well equipped

5 of 5
We arrived on a Sunday, late afternoon. All of the local shops close on a Sunday, but the owners were thoughtful enough to provide some basic items to start us off. We cannot praise the whole experience too highly. The owners were always able to assist if required, the property looked like it had been decorated the day before we arrived and the location was to die for! We would take our breakfast under the covered area to the side of the entrance door and watch the swallows have a bath in the water trough that is on the other side of the courtyard. On a busy day you could find up to 10 cars go past the house! We will definitely return to this property
