Known for its ancient university and its medieval minster (Cathedral), for its high standard of living and advanced environmental practices. The city is situated in the heart of a major wine-growing region and is the primary entry point to the scenic beauty of the Black Forest.
The town has more to offer than friendly faces alone, including one of Germany’s prettiest old quarters, with its characteristic Bächle – the narrow channels of water that run alongside the pavements. Highlights of the town include the Freiburg Minster located on Münsterplatz square, the Augustinian Museum as well as Schlossberg. Add to that a wealth of culture and history, lots of cafés and cosy bars, delicious regional food and scenic surroundings. This morning follow your guide on a walking tour to discover all the main monuments and sights of the town.
Then, a Trip Through the Black Forest
After some free time to explore the town and lunch at own expense, head towards the scenic route of the Black Forest. The Black Forest is a wooded mountain range bordered by the Rhine valley to the west and south. The highest peak is the Feldberg with an elevation of 1,493 meters (4,898 feet). The name Black Forest comes from the general dark color of the numerous pine trees that grow in this region. It is said that it is the Black Forest that inspired the Brother Grimm the Hansel & Gretel fairy tale. The Black Forest gateau and the cuckoo clocks originate from this region. Here, you will follow the scenic route and stop in a small quaint village that borders one of the most beautiful lakes of the area. You might want to try the local food such as cured meats or the world-famous Black Forest cake that leaves nobody indifferent!
After the tour, return to Strasbourg.
