Freiburg Germany – scenic city flair

The landmarks of the city are the Freiburger Münster and the Freiburger Bächle. The tower of the Freiburg Cathedral is sometimes called the most beautiful tower of Christendom.

The water channels of Freiburg, the so-called Bächle, supplied the city with drinking water in the 12th century and prevented fires. Today the “Bächle” are a pleasure for young and old, who cool their feet in summer or organize a small boat race. According to legend, if you accidentally put a foot in the water, you have to marry a local!
