Two half days at Freiburg

Hi friends - we are staying at Freiburg for 3 days and apart from planning trips into the BF areas, we could spend a couple of afternoons at Frieburg itself. We would like some views on the following: -

1. Cycling around or along any river if possible. Are there cycling tracks and can we rent out cycles?

2. What else to do at Frieburg? Basically walking around/ cycling around?

3. Some good typical restaurants serving typical German cuisine to have dinners in (not very expensive and with english translation menus)

4. We are staying at the Novotel hotel, so all places need to be within walking distance of this hotel.

Thank you in advance.

If you want to do some hiking and biking you might head outside of the city of Freiburg to the Kirchzarten area. Look under the "Leisure and Culture" tab: http://www.dreisamtal.de/index_en.php?lang=en

If you aren't sure what to do in Freiburg, perhaps stay in Kirchzarten instead (The scenery and biking in Kirchzarten are much better than you'll find in the area of the Novotel in Freiburg.)


Kirchzarten is only a few miles by train from Freiburg - and you'll then be eligible for the KONUS card (free train and bus travel throughout the region. You can ride into Freiburg and elsewhere for free.


Here are some of the other places you can visit with your free pass:


See also my suggestion for Gengenbach, which offers the same KONUS pass: tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g198540-i6827-k740…

Thanks Russ, but we are already booked at the Novotel, Freiburg and we cannot change that now. That said, would appreciate your answers to the queries i had above. Of course, we can certainly think of Kirchzarten visit (probably spend one half day there) on our way back from either the Triberg and Villingen visit OR on our way back from Titisee and Feldberg visit. Not sure which will be better to stop by at Kirchzarten.
