From Munich or Frankfurt to Freiburg

by undrmynd

My husband and I are arriving in Germany in late September. We are trying to find the cheapest way to get from Munich or Frankfurt (which ever is cheaper) to Freiburg. Originally we were looking at taking a train, but it seems to be quite costly. Is it really as expensive as it looks online? Is it cheaper to buy tickets when we are in Germany? Is is cheaper to take a bus, if a bus even runs to Freiburg? Sorry for all the questions, I have just been on the internet for a long time searching. Thank you all for your time.
ps... we are planning on traveling from Germany to Switzerland, then staying with family for about a month, then traveling onwards to France and Spain. Would a rail-pass be worth the cost?

Re: From Munich or Frankfurt to Freiburg

Actually, it is sometimes cheaper to buy German rail tickets in advance online because Bahn.de has some good advance offers. It is not cheaper to buy them at stations, in my experience. At German stations it is cheapest to use ticket machines.

http://www.bahn.de/international/view/en/index.shtml

will give you times and fares in English. You can get advance tickets for 29 euro one-way from both Munich and Frankfurt>Freiberg, which is a very good price. These advance tickets have limited availability (and are not available for all departures every day) so you do need to book well in advance.

As for buying a railpass, I would strongly suggest that you roughly total your point-to-point fares before you do this. Eurail is not a train operator, and its passes are no longer the good value they once were. Point-to-point fares often work out cheaper unless you are doing a large number of very long journeys.

The bahn.de link I gave above will provide times and details for almost alleuropean trains, but only fares for/from Germany.

For Swiss fares you need to look at www.sbb.ch/en/

For France http://www.voyages-sncf.com/billet-train/horaires is an easier link than www.sncf.com (but is only in french).

For Spain http://www.renfe.es/horarios/english/index.html

You may be able to find long-distance buses (coaches) for some routes. www.eurolines.com is the portal for European carriers. Coaches are cheaper, but take longer

If your first stop is going to be Freiburg, and your intention to travel onwards to Switzerland I would also look at flights to Basel, as it is a lot closer to Freiburg. There is even a bus from the Basel-Mulhouse airport to Freiburg.

A railpass will probably not be worth it. You can get a lot of good deals by booking in advance.

Best deal are the Rail&Fly tickets.
http://www.mvv-muenchen.de/en/index.html
Prices are set by the airlines, e.g. Lufthansa sells them for EUR 25,00.
Frankfurt is closer to Freiburg than Munich.
Basel airport is only served by Air Transat from Montreal intercontinental. And a connection flight to Basel inside Europe makes no sense time or price wise.

If you opt for the EUR 29,00 specials you can buy at earliest 89 days in advance, keep in mind that these specials are only good for the connection bought for. No change. No refund.

Bus is for Frankfurt/Munich to Freiburg not an available option. The only country on your itinerary with a domestic bus network is Spain.

Travel Tips for Freiburg im Breisgau

Most important: statistically...

by hokeypokey

Most important: statistically it´s the warmest place in Germany, and even when you take a look at the weather forcasts it´s almost the spot on the map where the temperature are higher than anywhere esle in Germany Downtown is great for a stroll. They´ve got those very little 'canals' running beside you when you walk your way through the city center.
The surrounding area is very scenic as well as they´ve got the black forest.

Baden - country of delicious wine ...

by Loeffle

I've been abroad to some other European countries, but basically nobody knew about the wine of Baden. Then I told my parents to send me a bottle of Badish wine which I could present to friends in my host countries, and oh wonder, quickly they asked what kind of delicious wine you have there, we want more ... Well, I think Baden's wines have a marketing problem, but I think who tried it once won't forget it.

Recently I read somewhere that wines from Habsburg have the best price/quality relation in Europe. Well, either these words come from a bit patriot or someone who never tasted wine from Baden. How could bad quality soil mediocre climate wine compete with wine who grows under medieval climate on volcanic soil?

Besides wine from Baden never were never part of any "quality faking scancals" like some wines of Austria, Hungary, Italy and France - not to mention those from oversea which are not always controlled due to European standard.

So if you don't travel by car (or have some days to spend in the region) I recommend you to go to Alte Wache - House of Baden's Wine and taste some of it. Anyway you have to make a reservation there before "tasting" your wine, because preparations have to be done. They offer several types of wine tasting (six or nine different wines), as well as some small regional dishes in addition. Wine tasting is possible every day AFTER reservation in advance.

After wine tasting you are also able to buy the wine you liked best (prices from 4 ? to ...). But you can also order online, of course. If I may recommend the "Probierpäckle" (see link" for you to get a first taste of Baden's wine.

If you don't like a formal wine tasting in a group, just go to one of the (small!) wine shops in old town, and ask if you can taste one of their wine. Of course they hope you will buy some of it afterwards ...

Enjoy it ...! Freiburg is not like Black Forest a pure beer region, here wine rules as well!

Alte Wache can be found easily on Münsterplatz just right behind the Münster church.

The "Dreisam" Stadion

by chancay

In this stadion you can watch 1.Bundesliga games of german soccer. Freiburg just started again in the first Liga after one year in the 2.Bundesliga. I think they play a very attractive football. It is one of the clubs with only few money, especially comparing with clubs as Bayern Munich or Dortmund. Nevertheless they have a very good team.

Picnic Park

by Zandra

About 15 minutes by light rail, outside of the city centre, there's a very nice park with a lake. The area is called Seepark and the name of the lake is Flückiger See. It's a perfect place to chill out on a sunny day, whether you just want to lie down and get tanned, or if you'd like to walk around a little (it takes about 20 minutes to walk around the lake). This is also a perfect place for picnics and BBQ's!

From the city centre; hop on tram No. 1, direction Landwasser, get off at 'Am Bischofskreuz', where you walk over the road (to the right), walk towards the houses (student dorms), turn (left) at the first road and then walk straight ahead between the houses until you can glimpse the lake. You can also get off at the next tram station 'Betzenhauser Torplatz', from where you also have to turn right and walk about 300 m until you reach the lake. This is the more commercialized part of the lake with a restaurant (good food though), a Biergarten and a mini golf court. Here you can also play boule and rent pedal boats.

Adolf Kornhas - house

by globetrott

Adolf Kornhas - Haus is the name of this lovely medieval building with a great facade and rich ornaments.
Lithographie, Stein- und Buchdruck ,(Lithography and printing of books) was the business of Adolf Kornhas and so it made sense for him to give some fine excamples of his art & profession at the facde of his house in Herrengasse # 34.
This profession is totally outdated nowadays and in that building is just an ordinary shop now, but the facade remained for our generation, who makes such work by a simply fax or photocopy-machine within 1 second...
