      Cool, glad I put Freiburg on your radar. I have definitely learned more about sports than I knew before since following you. Yes, your guidebook series in on my list. I have been trying to get Ctrl Alt Travel on its way before starting a new project. I will send you an emai.

    I love hearing about “secret” spots from locals. I’m really kicking myself for not visiting Freiburg when I lived in Stuttgart. The monkey fountain has really intrigued me.

      Ahhh right, you are the monkey person. You really should have come visit. You still can you know.

    Love that you opened this post up with your favorite place to do some quality people-watching! It’s one of my favorite things to do in most cities that I visit.

    A university cafe seems like the perfect place to watch people!

      People watching is the best part of travel. Simply. Oh and beer around the world.

      Yeah. It is the kind of city where the main attraction is just wandering around and watching people.

    I used to live in Freiburg, these pictures make me miss it so much! I agree 100% with your list, especially Feierlings!

      Thanks. I don’t go as often as I used to, but it is such a nice place to sit. How long were you in Freiburg? When did you leave?

        I studied abroad there in 2006 for a few months. I just recently was able to go back for a weekend though, and I was glad to see that it was just as perfect as I had remembered it!

          Perfect is not what I would call it, but definitely pretty good. It can feel a little small-townish at times, though that is why we keep getting out and traveling. You would have been here in one of the few years that I was not. Are you still in Germany, if you can visit for a weekend?
