Full description

Explore the picturesque city of Freiburg on a walking tour through the old town. See the famous Freiburger Bächle, which are small waterways that run along the streets, and venture into contorted alleys called "Gässle." Take a moment to appreciate the colorful Rheinkiesel mosaics that give the city its distinctive atmosphere.

Start your tour at the historic town hall square with your guide, continue across to the former grand boulevard of medieval Freiburg, and head towards Freiburg Minster. This historic cathedral is the cultural center of the old town and an exceptional example of Gothic architecture.

Have your camera ready for the cathedral's bizarre gargoyles, beautiful steeple, and the colorful farmers' market on the square. Other historic sites on the walking tour include the Alte Wache, a former military post turned wine bar, the Baroque home "Zum Schönen Eck," and many more.

Continue along till you reach Konviktstraßen, one of the most beautiful alleys in Freiburg, especially when laced with wisteria in the summer. Head on over to Handwerkerviertel before finishing your tour at Augustinerplatz.
