Full description
Explore the picturesque and green city of Freiburg during a wonderful walking tour through the old town. See the famous Freiburger Bächle, the small waterways along the streets and alleys, and the contorted alleys called Gässle, as well as many of the coloful Rheinkiesel-mosaics, which give the city its distinctive atmosphere. Head to the Minster Square with its beautiful community centers and secular buildings and see the traditional farmers' market (in the morning) as well as many cafés and pubs called Beizen.

Start your tour at the town hall square, where your guide will be waiting for you. From the beginning, you will see this square boasts numerous historic buildings. From there, continue across the Kaiser-Joseph-Street, the former grand boulevard of medieval Freiburg and head towards the Freiburg Minster, the cultural center of the historical old town and an exceptional example of medieval Gothic.

Before going inside the minster, discover the bizarrely shaped gargoyles, the delicate steeple and the colorful farmers' market on the Minster Square. After admiring the minster's interior, visit some of the historic sights around the impressive cathedral: the historic department store, the Alte Wache, the Haus zum schönen Eck and many more. Continue along the Konviktstraßen, one of the most beautiful alleys in Freiburg, until you get to the Handwerkerviertel.

We had a hard time finding out where and who our gide was ... It was not clear to us that we would take a tour organized by the city of Freiburg. The guide knew nothing about "Get your Guide" ... but let us participate. Everything actually no problem, I think there was also a very, very small explanation on our voucher ..., but in similar cases please write capital and clearly how it works. We are used to the guide wearing a printed T-shirt or being otherwise recognizable. Otherwise it was great! H. Huber

Der Guide war sehr kompetent, freundlich, sympathisch, entspannt und aufmerksam bezüglich einzelner Wünsche. In den 1,5h führte er uns durch die Altstadt. Gekonnt liess er die Antworten auf div. Fragen in seine Präsentation einfliessen. Zwischendurch bezog er auch das Publikum mit ein, indem er Fragen an Sie richtete. Wir empfehlen diese Führung auf jeden Fall weiter.
