The beautiful city of Freiburg – a university town since 1457 – has some fantastic tourist attractions and there are a variety of guided city tours available from the official tourism organisation ( The medieval Freiburg Cathedral is just one of many highlights with its imposing 116 meter high tower, which dates back to 1330.

The brick red Old Town Hall is not quite so old – it dates back to between 1557 and 1159 and is actually constructed from several historic houses. Originally it had a façade that was completely covered in paintings, which is typical for the region, but now it is just painted in the traditional red brick colours.

The gleaming white New Town Hall is a gorgeous assembly of buildings that date back to between 1896 and 1901, but its origins lie in a much older Renaissance building. Tourists flock here at noon every day, because the copper-roofed turret houses a lovely glockenspiel that chimes at 12.00 noon.
