Relaxed atmosphere, reasonable prices. Service a little slow but it was very busy at the time. Recommend the Flammkuchen.

I ordered a mixed salad, which looked good on the table next to us. Unfortunatelly, my salad came unwashed with approx. a spoonfull of soil. In addition, the green salad leaves were yellow-brownish. Clearly not fresh. Despite the complain I still had to pay the full price

Stopped in around 8:30 on a weeknight to find the outdoor tables full so we wandered in and sat at the bar. Had the local beer, a huge mixed salad and a Flammeküeche with bacon & onions. Food was very good, service was friendly and attentive. Nice easy vibe, seemed like a neighborhood spot with great music.

Schlappen is located in the Old City of Freiburg near the university in an area informally called the "Bermuda Triangle." The interior is pretty much the iconic German Kneipe or pub but with a full bar which includes international offerings. Go for the local unfiltered beer, if you haven't had this before. The food is not fine cuisine, but surprisingly... More

Had lunch here while visiting Freiburg. Had some nice looking real beer on (not just the gassy rubbish). There was a nice outdoor seating area but it was rammed to we ate inside. Lunch menu was extensive. We had a baguette with a side of chips. The portions were generous. The only gripe I had is that I asked for... More

This Kneipe is not bad, but the food is awful. If you only want to drink, it's the right place for you, but if you want to eat.. go somewhere else. The portions are huge, but the taste... it's a no.

Was there with office colleagues. Bit crowded so it was hard to find a table. Pretty noisy but after a pint of beer, nothing much to care about. Had a good range of food & was ideal for the evening. Go only if you want to sip a beer & eat something, not the place if you are looking ONLY... More

The location and decor of the bar is quite good. Service is good and the variety and quality of hard drinks & beer is great. I am not so impressed with the food. I tried the turkey bbq or kebabs and found it quite dry and a bit too salty. The chips accompanying the turkey is quite good. They also... More

The Schlappen is a classic pub, very German, great food and good selection of beer. Good athmosphere and always full. A must-do if you're in town.

We walked in by chance during lunch time and were surprised by a nice crowd and atmosphere. The three rooms were almost full, but we were lucky to get a table for two. We had good lam-sticks and turkey-steak - portions were huge and food was tasty. We paid about 35 E for two main dishes, beers and small desert,... More
