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.

Its warm (good central heating), its comfortable (everything you need) its quiet, it has great views and a lovely open garden perfect for children to romp around in (our grandson loved it) The house is on the edge of the town (great coffee and cake shop there) and right next to the forest. We went in Autumn and the colours were amazing. Lots of walks to go on from the house. We tried some of the local small towns which are very picturesque and visited three wonderful waterfalls, one just a few miles away. There is plenty of wine to taste from the local vineyards. We had a day in Baden Baden and tried the Spa which was great and quite inexpensive. Baden Baden itself is a lovely town. We can only recommend this house most highly and hope you have as nice a relaxing holiday as we and our family have just had. Best wishes Alan and Madeleine

The owners live very close by - so we had no problem getting help from them when needed. The location is also great - being very close to the Schauinsland mountain, and also not far from Freiburg. Lots of tourist attractions for children and adults. Highly recommended.
