City Overview

Freiburg is located in the south-west of Germany, close to the Swiss and French borders. The city with its scenic historic center enjoys the warmest climate and most hours of sun in Germany and is therefore an important tourist destination. In addition to tourism, Freiburg is home to a number of highly developed industries such as bio and solar technologies. The University of Freiburg, with its 30,000 students, is seen as the leading science center in this field. Visitor attractions include the cathedral and the small streams, or Bächle, which run uncovered through the whole city center.

Freiburg’s retail market benefits strongly from shopping tourism from Switzerland and France. The major high street is Kaiser-Joseph-Strasse, which is home to all major retailers. Rathausgasse, Salzstrasse, Schusterstrasse and other alleyways of the old town also boast an attractive variety of shops.
