Freiburg im Breisgau
Terrace house in Freiburg Breisgau
We would like to welcome you to our home in Freiburg - Germany's wonderful Tuscany.
We live in an energy saving, terrace house, designed by the architect Rolf Disch.
It is built in split levels. On the lowest two levels are an open kitchen (oven, stove, microwave, steamer, dishwasher etc.), dining, and living area (a lot of games, piano,cd, tv, dvd, internet). The living room leads to an enclosed winter garden with plants and a table where you can sit. The winter garden leads to a small garden outside with flowers, herbs and a small pond with two goldfish. Here, of course, you can barbecue. We also have two guinea pigs – Molly and Mucki – who live outside in a hutch. Molly and Mucki can go for a visit to friends while you are here.
Up the stairs to the upper levels are two bedrooms. We have room for an adult couple (1.60m x 2.00m bed ) and for two children with two sleeping accommodations ( .90 x 2.00m). The children's room overlooks the winter garden with a balcony. On this upper level, there is also the bathroom with two sinks, a bathtub, a shower and a toilet and an extra separate toilet (WC).
Feel free to use the bikes (two bikes for adults, one bike for a 12/13 year old, one bike for a 9-11 year old and one bike for a 6-9 year old), the roller and the unicycle which are in the shed. You'll find a washing machine in the basement.
Right in front of the house is a small pedestrian area with a big sand box, a small rocking horse and two benches. Children can play here, and adults can sit and enjoy a coffee and/or a chat with the very friendly neighbors.
It is 10 minutes by foot to a park with a lake where you can swim. There are two playgrounds and a table tennis table 5 min. away by foot.
The public transportation system is excellent in Freiburg. From our house it takes 2 minutes by foot to get to a tram station. It takes 12 minutes by tram to get to the historic city center and 10 minutes by tram to the main railway station. We have very good possibilities to buy groceries, bakery and butcher products within walking distance.
Freiburg is in the southwest of Germany, in the area called "Baden." It is known as Germany's sunniest and warmest area. The lifestyle and architecture have a Mediterranean touch. Freiburg lies between the impressive black forest and the lovely vineyards of the Kaiserstuhl.
Freiburg is a beautiful historic and romantic city with the famous ditches, called "Bächle," the impressive "Münster" (cathedral) and the colorful farmers' market around it.
People here love to sit together, talk, drink wine, eat the great regional dishes in the outside "Hocks" (folksy festivities), in the "Strauße" (very typical farm taverns with homegrown and homemade food) or in the several bars and restaurants in the city. Or you can have a coffee or tea in one of Freiburg's cafes.
The beauty of nature invites you outdoors for all kinds of sporting activities (hiking, biking, mountain biking, swimming, canoeing, skiing). Enjoy the various inspiring cultural options and events (theater, various concerts, historic museum, art museum, naturkundemuseum, cinema, planetarium, pottery market, art market...). It`s great fun to go on a wine tasting tour or just relax in Freiburg's thermal spa. Small children will love the Mundenhof or the indoor playground called Kindergalaxie. At the Seepark, you can go mini golfing, have fun in a pedal-boat or swim.The whole family will have a lot of fun in the Europa Park Rust – a spectacular theme park or in the Erlebnisbad Titisee-Neustadt – a pool land water park.
Freiburg is only 60 km from Switzerland and only 25 km from France. It's fascinating to be able to cross the borders of Switzerland and France with ease and immerse yourself in these other two European cultures so easily. Titisee, the Bodensee and the Rhine in Germany; Basel in Switzerland; Strasbourg, Colmar and the Alsace area in France are all worth a day's trip.
There is much more to do in Freiburg and our local area. We will have a folder ready for you with info on all that is worth seeing, and exciting and fun places to go that we know of.
We are very responsable people and will take care of your house as if it were our own.
