Day 3

Your third day also starts at the Bertoldsbrunnen, but today you will walk along Bertoldstrasse toward the central station. On the right, you’ll soon see the Uniseum (University’s Museum), which offers a fascinating exhibition on the 550-year history of the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität. After the Universitätskirche (University Church), you will pass by the two main buildings of the “Albertina” (the university’s nickname) and will already see your first distant glimpse of the dark glass facade of the Universitätsbibliothek, (University Library), shimmering with the reflection of the surrounding historic buildings. A 2,000-square-meter photovoltaic system supplies electricity to the modern, future-oriented building.

Just next to the University Library is the Freiburger Stadttheater (City Theater). For details of the current performance schedule, visit the Tourist Information office or go to:

Head to the left of the Stadttheater along Sedanstrasse toward the central station and explore the street’s little cafés, boutiques and the Glaskiste supermarket, Freiburg’s first packaging-free store. The blue Wiwilli bicycle bridge is on the right-hand side at the end of the street. In fine weather, you’ll see courageous locals scaling the ironwork to dizzying heights, attracted by the superb view of the Herz-Jesu-Kirche church in the Stühlinger district on the one side and the nearby Black Forest on the other.

Behind the central station is the circular Radstation Bike Station where everything, naturally, revolves around Freiburgers’ favorite means of transport. 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. Cycle to the Seepark (Lake Park) and its Japanese garden, restaurant and sunbathing area. Experience the mystical atmosphere of the Waldsee Lake, an oasis of calm in the heart of the city. Or explore the district of Vauban.

Freiburg’s focus on sustainable environmental and solar technology has earned it role model status as the “Green City,” with the Vauban district being one of the best examples. This residential area has been designed to promote an environmentally conscious lifestyle, with architecture incorporating low-energy and plus-energy construction, solar technology and hydropower.

You can reach this green neighborhood by bike in about 20 minutes. Pick up a copy of our “Green City Map” in the Tourist Information office to plan your trip. It includes the “Green Spots” itinerary, passing the Heliotrope, an architect’s private residence that produces three times as much energy as it consumes.

If you prefer to walk, that is not a problem. All suggested destinations for the afternoon can also be reached by tram: Seepark with Line 1, direction Landwasser (Betzenhauser Torplatz stop), Waldsee with Line 1, direction Littenweiler (Musikhochschule stop), Vauban with Line 3, direction Vauban (Paula-Modersohn-Platz stop).

We hope you enjoyed your stay in Freiburg and look forward to seeing you again soon!
