The Schauinsland Mountain

Right on the doorstep of Freiburg and 1248m high, the Schauinsland is one of the most popular excursion destinations for everyone who loves Freiburg.

Explore the Schauinsland on foot on a hike through the Black Forest and across green meadows. Europe’s longest circulating cable car takes you up – the Schauinslandbahn.

At the summit you climb the observation tower, visit the museum mine or indulge yourself with coffee and cake in the panorama restaurant «Die Bergstation». Freshly strengthened, you can go downhill on foot.

Getting there:

Take tram number 2 from Bertoldsbrunnen towards Günterstal, get off at the Günterstal Dorfstraße terminus, then take bus 21 to the Schauinsland valley station and take the cable car towards the summit. The way back is on the> signposted hiking trail from the mountain station. You can reach the Schauinsland in about 30 minutes by car.

– 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!
