“Well worth a walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

Great views and an interesting structure to climb when you get there. Check out the rubber monkey artwork while you're there! Some of the other artworks at the ruins are a bit 'out there'.

“Nice view and nice climb.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2012

Schlossberg is a steep wooded hill, almost within Freiburg. There are lots of footpaths up crisscrossing the hillside, to get up the hill, and it's nice and cool in the wood on a summer's day. There's one or more restaurants and beer gardens on the hillside with a nice view of the town from above. On the very top, there is a new viewing tower that get's you up over the treetops, to get a lovely view from above of Freiburg, and a nice view of the surrounding area, view as far as the Rhine, and les Vosges, for example, and part of Schwarzwald. It is a bit of a climb to get there, but it is well worth it. The road's not well marked, but any path upwards gets you there. You don't see the tower until you're actually there.

“Would be great for the view alone”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2012

Even at a rather foggy or hazy day, this is definitely one of Freiburg’s nicer spots and while being literally at the center of town, it gives you the impression of having traveled miles away to an isolated castle in the woods.
Many food places being fortunate with such extraordinary location, turn to compromise on most other matters while this place is a top class elegant location, certainly as far as the indoor facility is concerned, the food, though not pretentious or very creative is good and well served and surprisingly reasonably priced. The facility is large enough and well structured in a way it can host private functions at the same time as serving the public with no interference what-so-ever.

“It isn't that long of a hike up”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2012

It is stairs or a sloping walk up. No need to take the tram. It is good exercise and not that far. The views from above are incredible of the valleys below and of course Freiburg itself. You get a great view of their Altstadt.

“Fantastic restaurant”

There is a fantastic restaurant with prima food, service and veiew over Freiburg on the hill of Schlossberg. In summer you can also sit outside in the park and have a bear.
