Freiburg is probably next to Heidelberg the best University town to study in Germany. The standars are vey high and life right at the foot of the Black Forest and just a hop fro Alsacia, known for one of the best kitchens of Europe makes this place really desirable. Add to that low trafic and low contamination and you have... More

The mensa serves some decent variety of food items which range from european to chinese to Indian. I have been exposed to Italian and German cuisines here and the choice of food available is superb.

Some of the buildings were pretty. The students were not very friendly. There is a lot of construction going on around the campus making driving in the city difficult. This was the least appealing university that we saw on our European trip.

The University gives the city a lot of its young energy and charm. I'm not sure how this is a tourist attraction, but it's a center of life in the city and worth walking through! The medical clinics are extraordinary beautiful buildings; they look like hotels with lovely gardens. Start there!

My husband attended a conference at the University, and I merely walked around the grounds and visited the "Universeum", as they call their small museum which describes the history of the University itself. Entry to the Universeum is free, and, while the displays are all in German, they were able to lend me an English guidebook (€30 to buy) for... More
