The Bächle (gutters) in Freiburg’s old city are a touch of genious. For hundred of years they have washed rubbish and filth away - today they work as a mecanical water cooling system in the streets. On hot summer days they turn the heavy air fresh and pleasant.

You can’t help it: you will try resting or walking (and splashing 😉 ) Don’t resist, water is clean, bottom is clean too. Your feet will say « thank you » after a long day walk! A little pleasure you won’t be doing anywhere else 😇

I believe that I can say that the Bächle is one of Freiburg's icons. These little water runnels are all over the old city and part of it's history. They say that if you accidentally step in it, you'll marry a Freiburger! In summer, when it is usually filled with water, people dip their feet to cool down. Some even sit around it while having drinks and cooling their feet. Kids love them too! There are even little boats for sale and kids play with it in the water.

Rivulets that cool the town in the heat of Summer, and in the Winter make you think of the relentless passing of time. Fascinating architectural phenomenon, almost fairy tale like in ambiance. I fell in and I married a Local so the legend must be true! Charming historical feature that encourages the mind to think of times gone by.

This was part of the towns canalization and once that was no longer needed, it ensured that the town was kept cool. But during my recent visit there was no water flowing. I hope this is only temporary.
