#1: Say goodbye to the day on the Dreisam

In summer, you can relax the whole day long at and in the Dreisam reat motifs in the evening light include the swings on the Mariensteg and, of course, your best friends on a picnic blanket with an after-work beer on the banks of the river.

#2 Wiwilíbrücke (Wiwilí Bridge): Great view in the evening light

With its blue steel girders and the view of the Herz-Jesu-Kirche (Sacred Heart Church), the Wiwilí Bridge is a beautiful photo motif. Because it’s only approved for bicycles and pedestrians, it’s also suitable for enjoying the sunset with a glass of wine or an ice cream in your hand.

#3 ZMF: Experience Freiburg musically at dusk

Music and a balmy summer evening just go together. At the Zelt-Musik-Festival or Tent Music Festival, Freiburg locals and visitors alike can experience the city anew every year. When the lights come on at dusk, the result is particularly beautiful images.

#4 The Seepark (Lake Park) in Betzenhausen in the evening

The Seepark entices with a swimming pool, mini golf, and the Japanese garden, offering plenty of great photo opportunities. If you want to capture all the beauty of the summer evening atmosphere, climb up to the observation tower and let your gaze wander over the water.

#5 See the whole of Freiburg from the Eichhalde

The Eichhalde (whose name combines “oak” and “hillside”) offers an expansive view of Freiburg and its surroundings. It is especially beautiful here in the evening light, when couples meet for a date on the meadow to watch the sunset together.

#6 Platz der Alten Synagoge (Old Synagogue Square): Freiburg history in the evening

The square of the Old Synagogue is one of the must-sees for a visit to Freiburg. The area around the memorial fountain invites you to linger. The best view at sunset is when you sit so that you can see the UB library with its reflective facade.

#7 Schauinsland: Freiburg’s mountains in view

If you’re lucky enough to stand on the summit of the Schauinsland at sunset, you should let your gaze wander over Feldberg, the Alps, and the Black Forest and capture the panorama not only with your camera, but also with your heart.

#8 Münsterplatz (Cathedral Plaza): Freiburg’s historic heart

Not only during the buzzing hustle and bustle of the market, but also in the evening hours, the square with its cathedral, historic department store, and granary has a special charm. The gargoyles of the cathedral, which seem to come alive in the evening light, make for some particularly beautiful photos.

#9 Stadtgarten (Municipal Park): Freiburg’s most popular green space

Flowers, trees, a small café: it is no wonder that the people of Freiburg love their Municipal Park. When the 500 or so rose bushes are in bloom in summer, you can take some really beautiful photos here in the soft evening light.

#10 On the Schlossberg in Freiburg’s most beautiful beer garden

In the Kastaniengarten, the beer garden named for a “chestnut garden” on the Schlossberg, you have the perfect place to see the sun setting behind the cathedral. You can enjoy a Freiburg beer and a pretzel. Beautiful vacation pictures just seem to spring up out of nowhere here.
