Full description

Walk along the medieval little canals running through the old town as you discover impressive buildings. Also, discover lesser-known corners like the picturesque tanner’s quarter. Learn from your guide's stories and tales about the founding fathers of the city and the dukes of Zähringen.

Under the rule of the House of Habsburg, Freiburg became a powerful stronghold of Europe’s most important dynasty in the southwest of Germany and the Black Forest. The university, founded in 1460, and the gothic cathedral with its majestic tower still bear witness to the heyday of Freiburg.

Explore not only the outside of the cathedral but also visit the inside to take in the magnificent stained-glass windows and other features of this stunning church building. At the end of the tour, understand the challenges of a modern city striving to become a green and sustainable community.

    The lady who guided us has professional, extensive knowledge. The tour was well structured, easy to understand for everyone. The tools, such as pictures, were also used appropriately. All in all we had a really good informative time despite the heat.
