About Freiburg im breisgau

With historical roots dating back to 11th century, Freiburg im Breisgau, which was a castle when founded, is a city near the French border. A part of Baden-Württemberg in Germany, the city was included in Austria in 1386. Freiburg im Breisgau, which had an immense cultural and economic development in Middle Ages due to the silver mines in the city, turned into a center for the Catholics at the beginning of the 19th century. The city, conquered by the French forces during the Second World War, was reconnected to Germany after the war. Even though German is the official language in the city with the population of 226 thousand, most of the people speak French.

Freiburg Albert-Ludwigs University, among the oldest and rooted universities of the country, is one of the symbols of the city and the Augustinian Monastery is used as a museum today. Münsterplatz Square is a popular place in the city center for young people and the cathedral building in the square defies the years by dating back to 13th century. The Historical Merchants’ Hall which was built in 1520 attracts the attention of tourists today. A hotel in service for years in the city, which hosts the oldest hotel of Germany, Zum Roten Bären continues welcoming its guests with the same excitement as its beginning years. Freiburg im Breisgau has a mild climate and it rains almost in every season. Winters are rainy and cold whereas summers are hot.
