Travel Germany: Freiburg

Travel Germany: Freiburg

In the Travel Germany series, different places across Germany are featured in interviews with expats who relocated there. With their insider tips and suggestions about why they love their new home, you'll have plenty of ideas for when you visit Germany.

Of course, I had to take this opporunity to share my personal tips for my beloved new home of Freiburg!

Located in southwest Germany on the edge of the Black Forest, 30 minutes from the Alsace in France and from Switzerland, this corner of the world is full of culture, food, wine, and seemingly endless nature to enjoy.

The view from Saint Barbara makes the food taste even better.
