Full description

Explore the picturesque and green city of Freiburg during a wonderful walking tour through the old town.

See the famous Freiburger Bächle, the small waterways along the streets and alleys, and the contorted alleys called Gässle, as well as many of the colorful Rheinkiesel-mosaics, which give the city its distinctive atmosphere.

Head to Minster Square with its beautiful community centers and secular buildings and see the traditional farmers' market (in the morning) as well as many cafés and pubs called Beizen. Start your tour at the town hall square, where your guide will be waiting for you. From the beginning, you will see this square boasts numerous historic buildings.

From there, continue across the Kaiser-Joseph-Street, the former grand boulevard of medieval Freiburg, and head towards the Freiburg Minster, the cultural center of the historical old town and an exceptional example of medieval Gothic. Discover the bizarrely shaped gargoyles, the delicate steeple, and the colorful farmers' market on Minster Square. Explore some of the historic sights around the impressive cathedral.

See the historic department store, the Alte Wache, the Haus zum schönen Eck and many more. Continue along the Konviktstraßen, one of the most beautiful alleys in Freiburg, until you get to the Handwerkerviertel.

The tour was fun and we learned quite a bit about Freiburg and the history of the city. It was informative and not boring at all. The city guide designed the city tour very well. At first I was worried because the group was very large. However, this was not a problem, as the city guide made sure that everyone heard everything well and was open to all questions. I would definitely recommend you tour.

Iris is a wonderful guide. Her energy is contagious and she’s an excellent storyteller. Our train arrived late but she was very accommodating and let us catch up with the tour. We didn’t know anything about Freiburg before, but everything we learned on the tour made us fall in love with it.

We learned a lot about the history and the city of Freiburg. It's a pity that the tour didn't also include the interior of the Minster. Our city guide was very competent and talked interestingly and very fluently. It was very pleasant to listen to her and you could always ask questions. I highly recommend this tour.
