I was not sure if they were just for looks or what, but I saw many people dipping their feet in during the heat if the day. Kids love playing in them.

What a delight these water channels are pop up all over Alstad. There was many a time my poor hot feet would have taken delight to be soaked in the cool clear running water. Watching children pulling along their boats was delightful, groups of teenagers gathered with their feet in and heads together chatting as they do. Loved them.

Very cool system of waterways ... Kids enjoyed playing in it, with it and along side it. Walking through the city, makes it easier for the kids.

This is a very refreshing aspect of the city - they just allow (former?) brooks to still run through town. This can be very refreshing during hot days - and a real nuisance if you step into one, like Johnny Look-in-the-Air. Tradition says, that -as a bachelor- you than have to marry a local girl ;-) So, be aware of... More

Very cute but be careful as you can easily trip and fall while you are sightseeing the lovely buildings. You can also buy little boats to play in the Bachle.

The rivulets which are, thankfully and remarkably, clean make walking around town a rather pleasant experience, even in the rain and drizzle. City has a really nice, chill, vibe about it. Will definitely visit again.

The Bachle looks nice on the roads in the old town of Freiburg. You can see kids playing with it. It fits well into the pictures part of the town.

These are rivulets or rills which run down the side of the street. In fact they are not drains but more for decorative interest. Kids like to buy toy boats to sail on the bachle and if you fall in you're bound to marry s freiburger!

Freiburg is a beautiful city made all the more charming by the small street canals that line many of its major streets. The sound of the water soothes, the visual is just as soothing. Pay attention, they are simply part of the street with small grates for crossing at doorways to businesses. They are easy to step over so it's... More
