Freiburg for active people

A paradise for hiking, cycling, and relaxing in lush parks

As the gateway to the Black Forest, Freiburg is the perfect starting point for athletic activities in the outdoors. Some of the top athletes born in Freiburg, like former swimmer Petra Dallmann, soccer player Matthias Ginter, and national coach Joachim “Jogi” Löw would certainly confirm this. With the sports park, open air and indoor swimming pools, and Freiburg’s green spaces, for example, you don't even have to leave the city to find countless opportunities to get active.

Morning:

The circular building of the Radstation (Freiburg bike station) is the central hub for Freiburg residents’ favorite means of transportation. If you would like to explore the city on two wheels, you can quickly and easily rent a bike and set off in your chosen direction. Bike sightseeing options include the Seepark (lake park) with its Japanese garden or the Waldsee. The picturesque wine villages of the Kaiserstuhl mountains and the wide valleys along the Dreisam river are unique excursion destinations for full-day tours, and are also perfect for hiking.

Our gourmet tours are an alternative that combine exercise and culinary delights. Discover the wines and delicacies of our region on a hiking excursion!

Afternoon:

Green, greener, Freiburg. This applies to the green city and its sustainable urban culture as well as to the color that prevails here. Trees, bushes, flowers, and meadows adorn Freiburg, ensuring a high quality of life and considerable leisure value. Experience spring in the municipal park or sit beside the Dreisam river in the summer with Freiburg locals. While your feet dangle in the refreshing water and the sun warms your face, you’ll see what we mean.

You can reach the heights in one of Freiburg’s bouldering centers, and even if the view is limited, the “summit experience” is still outstanding.

Evening:

A real favorite is the Wiwilíbrücke (Wiwilí Bridge), built in the 19th century. High above, on the beautifully curved, blue metal arches, young people in particular enjoy the cozy summer nights. The Augustinerplatz and Freiburg’s numerous beer gardens are also popular meeting places. Whether in the middle of the historic old town or on the Schlossberg with a wonderful view as far as the Black Forest – here, you can enjoy beer from Freiburg’s own breweries.

… and as Freiburg life stands for relaxation like no other, wellness fans will get their money's worth in the city’s and the surrounding area's thermal baths. Recharge your batteries with a massage or a session in the sauna!
