You can take a train to Triberg with a change in Offenburg. Titisee-Neustadt is also nice, at a lake, you can get there by bus from Freiburg.
I don't know what you mean by Europe pass, a Eurail pass maybe?
You can check trains, times and fares on www.bahn.de

Here a link to a map showing the railroads and major bus routes in the Black Forest.

You can use an Eurail Pass to travel to Triberg by train. The station name is just "Triberg". A cheaper alternative would be a Baden-Württemberg Ticket Single (EUR 20,00). Covers only regional trains but additionally also the trams (in Freiburg) and buses (e.g. to Vogtsbauernhof).
Two more sights along he railroad Offernburg - Triberg are the town of Gengenbach and the Black Forest Open Air Museum Vogtsbauernhof.

If you want to travel on the Baden-Württemberg Ticket select as means of transport "only local transport".
You don't have to select anything out of the upcoming drop down lists. DB timetable does also know about all bus stops, thus there are plenty options to make a wrong choice. If you just type in the name of a town and proceed the timetable will choose the best station/stop for you. That's by far the more reliable method.

Closer to Freiburg are the lakes Titisee and Schluchsee. And the Feldberg, the highest peak of the Black Forest.

For this trip a RVF REGIO 24 (a 24 hours) ticket which is EUR 10,60 for the entire RVF network is the best deal. Again a local public transport tickets covring regional trains, S-Bahn, trams and buses.

From Feldbergerhof (1.250 m) you can walk up to the peak or use the Feldbergbahn cable car which brings you up to 1.450 m.

The route from Feldberger Hof via the Seebuck peak to the Feldberg is easy. The complete round hike shown (the Feldbergsteig - 12 km) is not that easy and requires at least appropiate hinking shoes.

Re: Triberg

by christine.j

I saw from your other question that you are going to see the Rheinfall in Schaffhausen. In this case I wouldn't bother with the waterfall in Triberg, but choose some other place in the Black Forest, for example Gengenbach or the Feldberg, both in abalada's list.

Travel Tips for Freiburg im Breisgau

Gurs 1027 km

by Nemorino

This looks at first glance like a perfectly normal yellow road sign, such as you might find on any regional highway in Germany. But wait! These signs don't normally point to places over a thousand kilometers away. And who ever heard of a place called Gurs, anyhow?

Gurs is a city in the southwest corner of France. It was the site of a concentration camp that was used by the Nazi collaborators of the Vichy government to intern Jews and other people considered undesirable by the Nazis.

Within a few hours on October 22, 1940, the Nazis rounded up 6504 Jewish men, women and children from the regions of Baden and the Pfalz, including some 300 Jewish citizens of Freiburg, and deported them to Gurs. Many died there of hunger or illness, and in 1942 the rest were sent east to Auschwitz or Maidanek, where they were murdered.

On the 60th anniversary of the deportation, in October 2000, Freiburg citizens erected a plaque explaining what had happened. The text on the plaque concludes: "Too many people looked away back then, too few resisted. This must not and will not happen again."

Update: There is now a similar yellow sign in front of the main railroad station in Mannheim, but with a different number: "Gurs 1170 km".

Second photo: Square of the Old Synagogue. This is where the main Freiburg Synagogue used to be, until it was destroyed by the Nazis in 1938.

Fastnacht / Fasnet: Carnival in Freiburg

by Kathrin_E

Freiburg is one of the centres of alemannic Fastnacht. 35 carnival guilds are located in the city. Each of them is doing its own activities, but on carnival Monday they're all united in the big parade (starting 14.00).

See my travelogue page for more pictures and details.

old machineries in Ravenna-Schlucht

by globetrott

In Ravenna-Schlucht, where Goethe did walk and made some of his drawings you will see some large machineries, like they were used in order to cutting the trees of the black Forest. Using the woods in order to build furniture was the main income for the local people of Black Forest / Schwarzwald for many centuries. In Ravenna - Schlucht, quite close to Hofgut Sternen you can see this interesting machinery, cutting the wood, as a part of various exhibits about local industry of former centuries !
This exhibition is totally free of charge and you can see it any time !

Schauinsland Mountain

by Loeffle

This is "Freiburg's" mountain towering about 1000 meters above the town located around 10 km's south of the town rising up to 1243 m.

There are two ways to go there (+ hiking). Either you take tram No 4 Direction G?nterstal, where you enter a bus to reach the Cable Car, which brings you close to the top (nice cafe with panoramic view) or you take the train to Kirchzarten (direction Neustadt or Seebrugg) and from there the bus to "Schauinsland Halde", then you have 30 to 45 mins by food left to the top.

On Sundays and Holidays you can also visit a medieval silver mine. That one was important for Freiburg medieval wealth btw.
Often weather on Schauinsland is great, when it's foggy in Freiburg. So check it before your trip. The view from the top is breathtaking!!!

You can find more info on Schauinsland on the link below (with webcam!)
