Is Freiburg a good base for Europa Park and Black Forest?

Hi,

As part of our trip to Austria / Bavaria, we plan to spend 2 nights at Freiburg, a town chosen due to its proximity to Europa Park. We could have booked a hotel closer to / within Europa Park, but we preferred Freiburg since its closer to black forest and hence we can do a bit of sightseeing. So the plan is to do one of day sightseeing in / around Freiburg and the next day do Europa Park.

Would like some feedback on this plan.

Thanks to all in advance.

Best regards

Yes. But if you stay in one of the towns outside of Freiburg you'll get a KONUS guest card, i.e. public transport to the Europa Park and the Black Forest for free.

E.g. Kirchzarten or Waldkirch

Rust is just north of the RVF. In case you stay in Freiburg - thus no KONUS card - you can buy a mini group day ticket covering the RVF area (EUR 19,80) plus extension tickets to the Europa-Park (EUR 4,20 per adult, EUR 3,00 per child (6-14y)). Or a Baden-Württemberg Ticket (e.g. EUR 26 for 2 persons). This ticket is however on weekdays only valid past 9am.

Yes, Freiburg is in Black Forest, close to Europapark. But not in Bavaria at all. Try the Baden Wuettemberg forum.
