Bachle, Freiburg im Breisgau

4.4
#1 of 7 in Parks in Freiburg im Breisgau
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.
