Freiburg Christmas Market
Freiburg Christmas markets are popular family holidays with traditional festive breaks available at the German Christmas markets.

The Freiburg Christmas Market is situated close to the Swiss and French border and located on the western edge of the Black Forest, one of Germany's most popular holiday regions. Freiburg is a lively university city with a very charming atmosphere during Christmas time. It's most famous landmark is the magnificent Münster Cathedral, a masterpiece of medieval architecture.

The colourful Freiburg Christmas Market is located in the grounds of the gothic cathedral, surrounded by an array of impressive historical buildings, some of which date back to the times of the city's foundation in 1120. As you stroll through the town, be sure to look down at the pavement for the cheerful mosaics usually found in front of shops. Also, be careful not to step into the little rivers (Bächle) running parallel to many footpaths. Although, this may be a happy accident for some as a local legend states that anyone who does this will marry someone from the city. Freiburg city breaks offer a unique escape from modern living, taking you back to festivities long since forgotten.

A dynamic cultural scene and an excellent range of restaurants and bars add even more to the charm of this beautiful city. Thanks to its unique location, Freiburg is an ideal starting point for visits to other Christmas markets in South-Western Germany, Switzerland and France.

Take advantage of the region's wine or the world-famous 'Black Forest Gateaux' which adorns every café window.
