Schlossberg, Freiburg im Breisgau

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.

  • We took the automated cable car up to the Dattler Hotel for 11€ return. It's a very short trip, and the Dattler, which has panoramic views over the city of Freiburg, has a captive audience as the only...  more »
  • We are directly mounted in car, it avoids paying the cable car. At the top to Park haphazardly and not miss the belvedere which offers a great view of this amazing city, quiet, clean and green. The rise enabled us to spend in chic neighborhoods with beautiful trees (the Lebanon cedar, Redwood. Just like that! ) The omnipresent forest offers a real moment of pleasant coolness in summer.

  • A great piece of nature in the middle of the city. And it's possible to spend more or less time there, many nice spots to make a break and to look over the city. I walked up and on my way down I took the schlossbahn, which stops at a smaller park with a kiosk.
  • 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.
  • The climb up the hill in middle of city and view are very enjoyable for all age groups. The tower at the top is closed and there is no information on when or if it will reopen.
  • 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.
  • If you would like to see panoramic view of the city this is the best place in Freiburg. Near to city center.
