Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 420 reviews on the web
Supplied by water from the Dreisam River, Bachle are a notable characteristic of the city. First documented in the 13th century, the narrow waterways were used as a water source and helped to fight fires. In the 19th century they were moved to the edges of the roads from their original position in the center to make way for traffic. Today, the clean water flowing through the ingenious channels is enjoyed by children at play in the summer months. Unless you're ready for love, be wary of stepping in the water: An old superstition says that an accidental step into it means you'll be marrying a Freiburger.

  • Hard to believe: we saw ships on the Bächle. Apparently, a sensation has managed the city marketing. The city is expecting a surge in visitor numbers. See photo.

  • The small Bächle, which run through the whole downtown, are really sweet. Ideal for children to play with the Bächleschiffchen or to cool down on hot days.

  • In the summer the feet purely and simply relax in the middle of the city. Simply gorgeous, Freiburg just.
