Things to do in freiburg(black forest)

Hi, I am staying at freiburg from 19/6 to 22/6 for 4 nights, leaving on 23/6 to have a day trip to Rheinfall.

I will arrive in Freiburg around 7pm since I would be spending the morning cruising.

I need some advice on the activities that are recommended during my stay.

For sightseeing, there's of course the cathedral, some interesting looking buildings, an Augustiner Museum and Seepark. I thinking I will be spending one or two days on these sites since there are quite accessible so I don't need to spend much time on bus.

I am thinking about going into the black forest but i found that there are a number of options. It is said that tristee is a tourist trap but what do you think? It seems that Schluchsee is a good option since there is also a cable car that you can ride, and some people say that the brewery up there offers nice food and drinks.

Finally, do you think that guided tours in museums or historical buildings are worth the money? I don't mind reading background info before heading there but would I have more fun if there's a guide telling me about the history?

Thank you everyone

Freiburg is nice for strolling. All the small "canals" and the old buildings make it picturesque. It is also good for photography too, very evocative.



also, Black Forest info:


I would also suggest a trip to France; Colmar, and the Alsace region are nearby, about an hour away or less.

Thanks for the advice

Is the trip from Freiburg to Colmar covered that DB German RailPass? I dont recall see that region being covered by the pass when I visit the railway website.

Right now I am think about going on trips in 2 seperate days, each to different parts of black forest. Or maybe I could just ask around and see what the locals recommend:P

Whenever I am in Freiburg I go to Staufen- Small and cozy city with a great wines and wineyards. There is a wine stand on the market squere where the locals go for a glass of riessling. You can also grab a few bottles directly from producers.

As NYNM mentioned- Colmar is also good idea for a one day trip. But I am not sure how to get there by public transport- usually I rent a car. Driving in Germany is relaxing and very easy.
