Alte Wache (House of Baden wines)

From main guard station to wine bar: the Alte Wache, built in 1733 as part of military reinforcements, is today the House of Baden Wines.

The romantic-style, historic listed building on the Münsterplatz is one of the few remaining 18th-century buildings in Freiburg, left nearly unscathed from the bombings of the Second World War. Once the quarters of the Austrian guard, the building now offers visitors a chance to discover the fascinating variety of regional Baden wines.

Did you know that Baden boasts some 15,000 hectares of vineyards, making it Germany’s third-largest wine-growing region? The Mediterranean climate between the Black Forest and the Vosges Mountains, good soil and a firmly established, generations-old wine tradition are the ideal prerequisites for top-quality wines.

After a tour of Freiburg’s Old Town, come explore the wines of Baden on the Münsterplatz. Enjoy the splendid historic backdrop of the Alte Wache’s terrace and the view of the city’s most emblematic landmark, the Cathedral, over a glass of Freiburg Grauburgunder wine.
