“A nice water way that is very unique and refreshing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

While driving on the way to Frankfurt from Waldshut-Tiengen with a friend, we stopped by Freiburg and stayed in town. We had a day out in the city centre, and walked around, got some lunch and enjoyed the charm of this medieval town. We noticed these water way structures around and saw kids playing in them, how great is that!? Well, hope the pictures add to this review, I thought it was amazing.

“Don't fall down these!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

Bachle are deep gutters, with water running through them which comes from the Black Forest. They are throughout Freiburg and also Emmendingen. Occasionally there are boards over them so you can cross easily. Legend has it that if you fall into one of these in Freiburg you will marry someone from that town.

“Charming detail of the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

According to a legend, if you accidentally step in the Bächle, you will marry a Freiburger. So be careful.. or don't be...
Kids love it in summer, when they get to drag a little boat on a string behind them in the Bächle. Grown ups also like to cool themselves off on a hot summer day.
It's just a nice detail that makes this city charming.

“Neat, but not an attraction”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

You'll see these little streams — a step up from a drainage gutter, a step down from a canal — throughout Freiburg. Calling them an attraction is odd, but they're a fun feature.

“Characteristic element of city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

They add charm to the city and they perfectly suit with the style of it. When water flow, the city acquires an even more relaxing atmosphere!
