Freiburg im Breisgau : Michelin's recommendations
Resembling a peaceful village with paved narrow streets in its old centre, the lively university town of Freiburg has a unique gentle pace of life, surrounded by the hills of the Black Forest. The fine cathedral has been spared by past wars, miraculously surviving the bombing of the Second World War, and the successful reconstruction of the town’s historic buildings has given it a charming traditional feel. At the same time, Freiburg looks to the future – it is an important centre for ecology, and a pioneer of solar energy and low-energy architecture.
