Freiburg is a city attached to nature. The Black Forest isn’t just nearby, an arm of it comes right down into the center of town as Castle Hill. It is also a city of relaxation and enjoyment of outdoors. There are a few sites to see, but the best aspect of the city is really […]
Our adopted hometown is Freiburg, Germany. And while it is small, Freiburg is in the middle a lot of great places and works quite well as a base. The city itself has plenty to see and is a nice place to relax after a long day underway. If you are interested in outdoors stuff, you […]

We live in Freiburg, Germany. The Bächle are a unique feature of this Black Forest town. They are small gutters alongside the roads in most of the old town which run with clear water. It is clean enough that kids play in them in the summer. The entire old town has them and they vary […]

Sinking slowly into the hot water, I closed my eyes and let the cares of the day float away. It is so nice to have the thermal spas so close to Freiburg. Just a short ride out from town and in under 30 minutes from my desk I can be soaking in bathwater temperature mineral water. Especially since it has started to get darker and colder, I have made coming to the thermal baths my relaxation outing of choice.
