There were many pluses to our stay here. Reaching the hotel by foot from the train station was relatively simple - pretty much a straight line toward the forested berg/burg/bluff with the spire of the Munster off to the left. Reception was friendly and helpful. The room was spotless and featured modern plumbing, lighting and windows. Breakfast in the restaurant was very enjoyable as was a beer there in the evening. The proprietors have adorned the walls with a varied and interesting art collection and the curved stairwell is a work of art in itself. Situated at the 'back' of the town you have access to the forested bluff behind which you can access on foot or by elevator to the restaurant/beer garden. There are miles of trails here if you like. The outdoor biergarten is a classic with views not to be missed down below and across the nearby valleys from a perch over vineyards. There were locals in lederhosen with instruments singing and having a good time while we were there. The munster and augustiner museum (another must-see) are very close as well. Nearby is a ticket centre (not the info centre) which had details on a variety of concerts and we purchased reasonably priced tickets to a performance for orchestra and mixed choir at the university along the tree-lined river beyond the gates of the old town and easily reached by tram as were other areas of interest outside of Freiburg centre. The best plus of staying here was that with our 4 night stay we were given a free transit pass that could be used on buses/trams and intercity trains in the Black Forest. This not only gave us freedom, but also made life simple and saved us several euros. We took the trains as
far as titisee and the pass let us explore the region more extensively than we would have.
Another plus: the sound of the church bells...A negative: the bells in the EARLY morning.
We enjoyed the seasonal creamy white asparagus soup at the restaurant just down the street from the hotel toward the gate. ANother character place, like the hotel's restaurant.
