Things for couples to do in Freiburg: 6 ways to spend a romantic spring day together
#1 Breakfast at Blumencafé (Flower Café)
The Blumencafé in Freiburg Lehen is the perfect place to enjoy a romantic breakfast. You can really succumb to spring’s spell here, as you sit and feast amid fragrant flowers. If you would like to visit a café in the city center, you will find many other wonderful options here in Freiburg.
#2 Ferris wheel ride at the Frühjahrsmess’ (Spring Fair)
The Ferris wheel at the Freiburg Spring Fair is both a real eye-catcher and absolutely ideal for couples. Hop into one of the colorfully lit gondolas and soar to great heights, all while snuggling up with your partner! The wonderful view certainly won’t be the only thing to make your heart beat faster....
#3 Stroll through the Alter Friedhof (Old Cemetery)
The Old Cemetery is home to beautiful, sad, and mysterious stories of residents from two centuries (1683 – 1872). While on your stroll, look for the tomb that Rosa Schmid dedicated to her family in 1834, for example. She expresses her deep sorrow at the loss of her parents and sister in a moving epigraph, while entreating God for a positive turnaround. Or will you perhaps find the answer to the unsolved mystery surrounding the grave of young Caroline Walter and her lover?
#4 Relax at the KEIDEL Mineral-Thermalbad
What better way to rest your tired limbs than by warming up at a spa when you visit the KEIDEL Mineral-Thermalbad? You will discover a sense of well-being for body and mind here by allowing the thermal mineral water to work its magic and letting your spirit unwind as you float in the illuminated pool, which is especially nice in the evening.
#5 Stroll from Waldsee to Rehbrunnen fountain
What could be more romantic than a stroll through the woods? We recommend an especially beautiful route that starts at the Waldsee restaurant. After fortifying yourself with some food and refreshments on the sunny riverside terrace, stroll through the woods to Rehbrunnen – a fountain that features a sculpture of a deer. The young roebuck that stands tall and proud there as it looks off into the distance not only delights visitors with a truly magical aura, but also with an impressive history.
#6 Sunset at Eichhalde
Freiburg is the city with the most hours of sunshine, which is why you should cap your perfect, romantic day with a sunset! You and your parter can find a charming spot on the Hebsackwiese meadow in the Herdern district to reminisce about the day you have spent together, while watching as the deep red sun slowly disappears behind the city.
