Lovely big square surrounded by nice shops and cafes. Plenty of outdoor seating where you can sit and take in the atmosphere and enjoy the fountains.

We had a trip to the Black Forest and visited two towns on the same day in this lovely region of Germany. The first one was Freudenstadt and I am always impressed by the cleanliness of these towns. You never see litter anywhere and all the grass areas are kept trimmed and tidy and there is always an abundance of... More

Freudenstadt is a small city located at the heart of the Schwarzwald in Germany. Be it a teashop, an Irish pup, a shoe shop, or just a coffe that you are looking for, the Markplatz in Freudenstadt is the place to be!

This is a huge square bisected by busy roads. On one side is the area used for the local market and on the other fountains which children had great fun playing in on hot days. There are lots of cafes and areas of grass to sit out and surrounded by shops. The museum is also located here which is interesting... More

This is the main focus of the town with a history, some lovely restaurants and a fountain maize that kept the children entranced. The shopping although expensive for us was interesting and the variety of shops kept you busy for a while.

The Marktplatz is a great place to take a breather from touring the Black Forest, there are fountains, cafes, shops, Cuckoo Clocks and Black Forest Cherry Torte galore.

Apparently Europe's biggest marketplace. Freudenstadts only claim to fame. Water attractions on one side. End of story.

In our trip to black forest, we tasted the authentic Schwarzbaldtorte, a chocolate cake really delicious. The place is calm, and paceful, and an attraction is the corner church. Really nice and really typical black forest.
