Schlossberg, Freiburg im Breisgau

(4.2/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • There is no use to go up the hill at the moment because it is closed due to renovations and you don't see nothing if you are not able to get on the top.  more »
  • Climb the mountain you can in different ways, you can use the lift for 5 euros in the City Park area (also a very beautiful place), or to rise the most, importantly, in comfortable shoes. Offering stunning views. The observation tower was closed, repairs are underway.

  • We took the cable car to access to "level 1" then to actually view the schlossberg, go on foot. It climbs, I cursed, but the view is beautiful! on the one hand the daughter of Freiburg and the other the Black Forest - wonderful

  • You can probably get a more enjoyable hike out of Schlossberg than most other Schwarzwald trails - lots of paths, occasional great views and starting right from Freiburg Altstadt.
  • 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.
  • If you would like to see panoramic view of the city this is the best place in Freiburg. Near to city center.
  • 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.
