    Food: Flammkuchen is the local thing similar to pizza with creme sauce. Available in many places.
    Schlappen is a local pub near the Martinstor, good local style food in a lively atmosphere.

    Beer: Ganter is the local standard beer available in most pubs. Seek out the Feierling Brewery with restaurant for their unfiltered wonderful beer.

    Sights: The Bächle are the gutters running with water and are typical to Freiburg. The Cathedral is worth a climb and a look. Even just in the center of town there are two towers that once served as city gates for photos (i dont think you can climb them, I never have). Martinstor and Schwabentor. Through Schwabentor is a set of stairs onto the Castle mount. This is a multitiered forested hill that has a biergarten and several observation plazas and a tower.

    Outside of town a short ways is Shauinsland. It is out on the edge of the public transport, and has a cable car up to an observation tower. This is one of the best views of the whole forest.

    A little further out of town is to take the train up into the forest itself. Titisee (35min) and Schluchsee (1 hour+) are two lakes that are relaxing, if touristy places to see up in the forest. Feldberg is a bit further and the skiing mountain.

    Eulen Keidel Bad is a thermal bath easily reached from town on public transport. Depending on weather outside, it is nice relaxing hot water swimming pools.

    If you can speak/read German, there is a City History Museum on Cathedral Square. The large museum in town is called the Augustiner and right around the corner from Feierlin Brewery. over 7 years ago
