We are the...



About us

The Oberkirch – more than «just» a hotel with a restaurant.
Our beloved house has a special spirit. Many of our guests, whether they are Freiburg residents, exile «Bobbele» (= born in Freiburg) or just Freiburg enthusiasts, have their very personal emotional connection with this historic location. They tell us how they celebrated family celebrations here, met the love of their life or said goodbye to loved ones – a special, positive spirit emanates from these walls, which accompanies us in our daily work and also affects our self-perception.
We have a real sense of tradition, we are in love with Freiburg, we are individual personalities creating personal moments: Be it the precise discussion of your wishes and the answering of your questions on the phone, your reservation for our hotel or restaurant, welcoming you upon your arrival, the loving care during your stay or our warm farewell with anticipation of seeing you again soon: it is our desire not only to enable you to experience the hospitality that has been lived in our house for over 250 years, but also to the multifaceted nature of our city and our region with its history, its traditions, their cosmopolitanism and all their wealth – historical, cultural and culinary.
But of course we are not just hosts with passion for our job and our town. We are also deeply rooted in the city and the region as entrepreneurs. Employer with social responsibility and trainer by conviction, we want to preserve and pass on the traditional values of hospitality, and at the same time embrace the change time brings. We network in partnerships and attach great importance to progress through cooperation – be it with our long-standing suppliers and service providers or with partners in the local business network.
Furthermore, regionality and sustainability are also not just important in our house since they have developed into a trend.

– 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!
