The Schlappen is a must-see bar in the centre of Freiburg. There's always a great atmosphere (unless you're too snobby for a 'studenty' pub) and the food portions are big and delicious. They have a big selection of whiskey to choose from as well as a heap of tasty beers and cocktails. Have visited many a time over the past... More

If you are visiting Freiburg and want insight into a old and traditional student bar, this is the place to go. My father went there when he was young and me and my friends still enjoy going there for a good night out. This is where 21+ student community meets up for beers, shots and drinks at any night of...

The place is very nice, old '70 style, wooden tables, posters. Very nice atmosphere and nice people around :) But forget the food ! Drink a good beer and take a salad! That is it!

A cosy bar with selection of beers plus a mean G+T! An eclectic mix of clientele which makes for a convivial atmosphere. Great service too, plus English spoken. You must go downstairs to view the loos, quirky decor....life size stainless steel torsos with intriguing secret doors & flaps to open. Bar is old style with decor that includes the odd... More

Must iconic stop by if you're in Freiburg. Locals hang out here whether students or working people. Food prices are very affordable and surprisingly tasty whether you get the spaghetti or pizzas (cheaper and better than a lot of these overated Italian places in Toronto!). Don't forget to check out the washroom...you're in for a surprise...

Okay, okay, my husband and I were pretty reserved at Schloppen and cannot claim we got truly schloppy (sic) despite the tasty absinth and whiskey we consumed. We are true whiskey connoisseurs and enjoyed the amazing whiskey collection and tried multiple flights. We didn't eat here on our recent trip but have in the past and the food is always... More

What a place. Absolute must visit. Though its a whiskey bar, I discovered the joys of Absinthe & will be forever thankful............. Very knowledgeable & friendly barman ( struggles with English though. Anyway drunkenness transcends languages). Take a pocketful of cash & trade it for Absinthe bliss.

an institution that I still go to, even that I am not a student anymore.... have good beers and some of the best fried potatoes with sour cream dip around - an absolute classic. Up and down side can be that it is VERY popular and therefore VERY full and loud. So nothing for romantic couples but ideal for a... More

This is a popular place with folk of all ages. Very busy at times! Service was very good and attentive and there was plenty of choice of drink and food, The Flammkuchen were tasty and not expensive.
