Every town has churches and town halls and market squares and so on and so on. But few have Bachle. These small canals and the larger ones that cross the city give it its individuality. A walk through the Old Town and along these water ways is a real delight. So is a day trip to Staufen, Not to be... More

These little mountain streams drain thru the town. Very cute, but just be careful not to trip on them.

This is really unique and fabulous. . Number of traditional canals in most of the grounds at the center.. Really liked it so much.. The old story said if you leg fall be mistake , you will find your love in Freiburg and you will marry a lady from Freiburg. .

Kids loved them, as others have said they are not an attraction but part of the city's history. It was good to see some kids playing with wooden boats brought from the market square. Worth finding some that are actually flowing with water as some are empty.

The medieval water drains of this city are better enjoyed while listening to a local guide. You can stroll around the city inner core, follow the bachle and hear very nice old stories about the city and the use it's citizens make of this drains during the summer.

You will encounter the bachle upon a stroll through the old town, and while being careful not to fall in, they give a real identity to Freiburg.

Not at all sure that they can be described as an attraction, but they are pretty unique I suppose. Really need to be aware of them when wandering the streets, any unexpected distraction could result in a fall. Good to see something different, though.

Read about these little water channels before my visit to Freiburg then forgot all about them till I saw them all over the town. Part of the history but could also be a hazard to the unwary pedestrian
