Combine culture and shopping in your stroll through Old Town, because a leisurely walk along the Bächle will take you past beautifully restored houses, historical buildings and charming shops.
Even today, Schusterstrasse is still a place for handicrafts. In the small street that runs parallel to Salzstrasse you will find leather goods, arts and crafts, an old-established goldsmith and a second-hand bookshop. You can't miss the colorful facades of the houses and the balconies and windows decorated with flowers.
Herrenstrasse takes you to the upper Old Town where you will find many small shops from artists' materials to jewelry and women's and men's fashion. Stroll along the famous Augustinerplatz which invites you to relax on summer evenings or visit the well-known Augustiner museum.
You will find the entrance to the Freiburg Markthalle, which lays somewhat hidden, in a courtyard off Grünwälderstrasse. Here you can feast your way through the entire world; at more than 20 stands, chefs conjure up regional dishes as well as countless delicacies from Latin America, Asia and the Orient for hungry locals and guests.
