  • Brazil: Good food!

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Good cocktails, many beverages you can choose for good prices - but it has nothing to do with South America, it's only in the name :-) They haven't many dishes on their cards, but whatever you choose will be good! I tried a Thai Soup with red curry, coconut milk, chicken and chillies and it was really hot and tasty (EUR 2,50) and another time a wonderful fresh salad (big!!!) with baked french cheese (EUR 6,50) - delicious! There's every day one cocktail the "Special Offer" for prices between EUR 3 - 5,50.

  • ASPEKT: Student Bar

    by Annalisa-Lucia Written Oct 2, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    ...a really nice bar (one more meeting point for students) where also the local beer from Cologne - Koelsch - is served, for EUR 1,50 the glass, really cheap! Food and music are ok, but don't miss to try the breakfast there! It's every day, but the best choices you can make on sundays (until 6 pm). They serve everything you can imagine (including fish and seafood), when you choose the breakfast called "Europa" - for only EUR 8,00 incl. coffee and fresh orange juice. They offer ca. 15 different sorts of coffee from all good coffee regions and in countless ways of preparation...worth a visit! But also here the waiters aren't too fast...

    ...not only at night this is the meeting point of all students - prices are really good, under average (and the average of Freiburg is low!) and you can eat some smaller plates there which are more than ok, and drink everything you like to - except of good wine :-)

    by Annalisa-Lucia Written Oct 2, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the "Kornhaus" at Muensterplatz there are several pubs and dancing bars located - i experienced only the Irish Pub in it, which is really a nice one, it's big and cosy, prices are a bit over Freiburg's average, but the bevarages are ok...only the waitresses are a bit too slow...but they play good rock and blues music and at the weekends it's live music from 9:30 pm on...

    Freiburg Municipal Theatre: Theatre, Opera, Ballett, Musicals and more

    by Loeffle Updated Feb 14, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Freiburg Municipal Theater (Stadttheater in German) is the cities largest theatre having four attractive performance areas:

    The main "large house" offers around 1000 seats, then the modern "Kurbel" theatre (a cinema until the 1990'es), the small "Kamera (also part of the former cinema) and as guest stage "Theatercaf?". There's also the Jackson-Pollock-Bar, where you can meet fans, artists and night owls after a play.

    In general Freiburg Municipal Theater is quite modern, because the new boss is young and trying to attract new (younger) people to the world of theatre, opera and ballett. Reactions are mixed, but what I saw so far is quite promising. But of course everybody has his own taste. Specialties are very modern versions of "classical" plays. I was recently impressed by Richard III (Shakespeare) and Nora (Ibsen). Next up is Carm?n!

    The theatre was built 1910 by Heinrich Seeling, but competely renovated in year 2000. Some people say Freiburg Municipal Theater doesn't have much flair, but hey I go there to watch plays. And you can't expect another Scala in a medium sized German town.

    Freiburg Municipal Theatre also offers many special events. Most famous perhaps the International Theatre Festival (see webpage below for details) in summer, where marketplace is sometimes turned into a big performance area.

    There's also a "theatre day" once a month, when ticket prices are reduced significantly. Students pay (as long there are tickets available) 7 ?.

    Often opera's and musicals are performed in "native" language; meaning Italian operas are sung in Italian with German subtitles.

    Dress Code: Well, I'd say you can go there the way you want to go. Of course you will find people with very expensive clothes, but you will also find students who are dressed in every day style. Freiburg is an own town, so nobody cares about your clothing style here.

    Jackson-Pollock-Bar: Tuesday Salsa Party

    by chancay Updated Sep 19, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I love to dance Merengue, Bachata or Salsa or other latin dances so I´m always searching for possiblities whereever I go. I found a Salsa Party every tuesday in the Jackson-Pollack Bar just next to the Stadttheater. So the unfortunately a bit moving photo shows the "Stadttheater" building.
    The party was ok, although the ambience was quite cold, besides only a few real latino dancer and too much "dancing school" dancers.....

    Wallgrabentheater: Theatre at its best?!

    by Loeffle Written Jun 11, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This theatre is perhaps the "small sister" of the Municipal Theater, but nevertheless worth visiting.

    There are only around 100 seats, but still this theatre managed to survive without mayor municipal funds. I think this is clearly a sign for quality.

    Wallgrabentheater was founded in the 50'es as a student experimental stage, but by now it became an established institution in Freiburg's cultural life. It hosts around six to seven premieres each year, primarily plays from the 20th and 21th century. Besides successful plays like McNallys "Meisterklasse" or by Loriot are produced and performed again, with big success.

    In summer the open-air "Rathaushofspiele" (town hall courtyard plays) are a must. Both because of the special medieval atmosphere and the quality of the plays.

    Every second year (2002, 2004, etc)Wallgrabentheater host also Freiburg Student Theatre Festival, where "newcomers" can show their talent.

    Besides theatre performances Wallgrabentheater hosts guest performances of independant artists as well as reading evenings of story-tellers.

    In 2003 the theatre celebrates it 50th birthday, and the celebration will take a place in a huge circus tent. Happy Birthday Wallgrabentheater!!! In my eyes the most special theatre in Freiburg ...

    Wednesday is theatre day, every play only 8 € (special performances excluded!)

    Dress Code: Even less formal than in Munical Theatre ...
