The narrow, cobbled streets and scenic squares of the Altstadt, are perfect places to appreciate Freiburg's medieval charm. Don't miss the Münsterplatz, a square 20 minutes on foot from the hotel, which is dominated by the towering, 800-year-old Freiburg Cathedral. A few minutes' walk away, the Augustinermuseum is a former cloister containing artwork from the Middle Ages to the 19th century.
For panoramic views over the city and the surrounding area, make the short climb to the top of tree-covered Schlossberg (Castle Hill). A 30-minute walk or a 10-minute tram ride from the hotel, it marks the edge of the Black Forest. The walk up is steep, but you can refresh yourself and take in the views at one of several cafés. If you don't want to walk you can ride up on a funicular railway.
