Freiburg is the ideal base for excursions into the Black Forest! And when it gets very warm in our beloved Breisgau metropolis in summer, the temperatures higher up are always a bit fresher!

The «Säbelthomaweg», a hiking path decorated with multiple awards, begins at the Hinterzarten train station. Following in the footsteps of the Säbelthoma, you can enjoy wonderful views over the «Windeck» ski slope after climbing a shady forest path. We continue to the house farm, where a “natural refrigerator” with a wide selection of refreshing drinks and benches with a wonderful view of the Feldberg invite you to rest. The highlight of the tour in warm weather is undoubtedly the idyllic «Matthisleweiher», where you can refresh yourself by jumping into the cool water. Those who would like to stop off on the way back can deviate a little from the route and follow the signs to the Matthislehof, where a farm shop and wonderful hospitality welcome hikers from Thursday to Sunday.

Freiburg-Menü

– An initiative by Freiburg restaurants and the tourism board FWTM –

As a special offer for our guests, we have jointly developed a sustainable seal of quality with the following characteristics:

  • The dishes of the Freiburg menu are consistently prepared from at least 70% ingredients from the region
  • The ingredients originate from suppliers within a maximum radius of 130km from Freiburg
  • In terms of content, every restaurateur is free in his creative design and offers dishes that suit his own house and kitchen
  • All dishes that are part of the menu are marked with the Freiburg logo on the menu
  • The Freiburg menu is offered all year and changes at least 4 times a year to emphasize the regionality and seasonality
  • To enhance transparency, we are happy to inform you about the exact origin of the products
  • Regional drinks such as water, juices, beer, wine and spirits are offered to match the menu

We are very pleased to be part of this initiative and to be able to put the culinary wealth of our region in the foreground – we wish you bon appetite!
