The beautiful capital of Alsace is just a 1 hour drive away from Freiburg. Visit the Petite France quarter, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the cathedral of Notre-Dame, a masterpiece of Gothic art.
Less than 1 hour away from Freiburg, Colmar is definitely worth a visit! With its half-timbered houses and romantic canals the town feels like coming out of a fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm.
Situated only 45 minutes south of Freiburg, Basel, which is Switzerland’s oldest university city, offers almost 40 museums, a beautiful Old Town, modern architecture, and the impressive river Rhine.
