Schlossberg, Freiburg im Breisgau
Categories: Mountains, Nature & Parks
Just to the east of Freiberg's Old Town and perfect for hikes and recreation, Schlossberg is a small mountain area used by the French as a fortress from 1677 to 1744 and the site of many battles and disputes. To get to the top, you can either take a footpath opposite the Schwabentor or the new castle mountain railway funicular. Atop the mountain, you'll find the beginnings of various hiking trails, a 19th-century tower, remains of the old fortress, and the Schlossberg observation tower. Stop by the Greiffeneggschlössle beer garden for a break, and be sure to take in the impressive view of Freiberg.

Lohnt sich auf jeden Fall, am besten bei schönem Wetter. Nur ca. 10-15 min Aufstieg vom Schwabentor zum Kanonenplatz. Von dort aus toller Ausblick über die Stadt.Worthwhile in any case, the best in fine weather. Only about 10-15 min rise of the Swabian's gate to the cannon square. From there great views over the city.show original
It's nice to walk up the hill. You get a nice view over the city and you can enjoy a little nature. There are plenty of ways to get ip and down.

Great place to go for a run or hiking... Enjoyed great view to the city and there are so many small trails/pathway to the top.
Really fantastic place to be. Too bad we had no good weather but otherwise you have a great view over the city an the cathedral.
Make an effort to go up - the views totally worth it. Wander further in the forest, the paths are quite easy and the stroll is pleasant.
Good place to have a nice view of the city!
