Freiburg is one of the most beautiful and attractive cities in Germany. Freiburg is located in the south-western Germany at the western edge of the Black Forest. Due to the wide climatic range, extending from Germany's warmest region in the valley of the river Rhine close to the alpine timberline, the versatile landscape and the picturesque city centre, Freiburg is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Germany. Its history reaches back to the Middle Ages which one becomes very aware of when strolling the small lanes of the old part of the town. Freiburg also offers a wide range of cultural attractions, including theatres, concerts, ballet, modern dance, music festivals, all kinds of museums, and exhibitions.
