The Hotel is on the town square in front of the lovely cathedral and within walking distance of Freiburg's main shopping area. From the train and bus station, it is two stops with the tram. There are rooms in the house directly above the restaurant and then in a newer annex. I stayed in the annex in a single room,... More

Stayed overnight at this hotel during our trip to Black forest. We were pleasantly surprised to discover that the hotel is right at the heart of the city with the famous Freiberg cathedral bang opposite the hotel. The hotel is small but quite charming with helpful staff. Breakfast is average. Everything worth visiting in Freiberg is within walking distance!

We could have not been more pleased with our overall experience at Hotel Oberkirch. From the moment we arrived the entire staff went out of their way to help with whatever we asked...and they did it with a smile. The location was perfect for shopping, seeing the sights, walking around the town , and visiting our son at the University... More

This hotel was set in a dream location right across from the centuries old Church. Our hostess and the entire staff of the Oberkirch made us feel right at home. The meals in the dining room were delicious, and since we were there during (white) asparagus season, many were designed around this novelty. Every day the market would come to... More

A short taxi ride from the train station to Muensterplatz brought us to this charming hotel situated in the heart of historic Freiburg. Check in was a breeze and soon we were in our spacious room facing the marvelous cathedral. Flowers, fresh fruit and bottled water welcomed us and the helpful staff helped get us online with the complimentary wifi.... More

If you want to be in central Freiburg, this is as central as you can get. Yet you can park your car there for €15 per day. Lovely old-fashioned hotel where everything including the plumbing works just fine. Excellent restaurant, currently offering the fantastic white asparagus, perfectly cooked. Helpful and friendly staff. Great value for money.

This is a seriously old hotel and it feels it in its architecture and layout, but it has modern touches. Best of both worlds! The location can't be faulted; right in the middle of town overlooking the Münsterplatz, so the views are wonderful. As is the sound of the bells, which strike every quarter of an hour, along with the... More

We have stayed there many times in the past 15 years. The hotel provides great service, the facility is updated and comfortable. Views of the cathedral are unsurpassed. You are in the middle of the square that hosts a market every day but Sunday. Don't check in on Sunday, as the restaurant is closed and the access a bit complicated.... More

Patterned wall paper, historic feel and really friendly staff. This hotel is located in Freiburg town (the most amazing town ever, I love the historic buildings and pebbled paths). It's so perfect for a weekend away or a business trip considering the train is only a 10 min walk away. Perfect!

Just what I love - history, charm, character, this place has it all. After some initial confusion about where I was supposed to go to check in (I followed my map and arrived at the restaurant door, there someone said to go around through the alley, where I saw a door and buzzed to get in, and waited.... I got... More
