Wonderful cozy apartment! Would stay again!

  • 5 of 5

My stay was absolutely lovely! Bozo, the owner is the nicest guy in the world and his parents who also live in the building are very welcoming. The apartment is above a restaurant, run by the family, and the food is absolutely delicious! The apartment is located right in the heart of Freiburg and is a close walk to many restaurants, shops, and bars. I would absolutely stay at this rental home again!

This apartment worked great

  • 4 of 5

We rented this unit for a month while we attended language school in Freiburg. We loved the location and our landlords. The only downside we had was the noise since we had to have the windows open to stay cool at night. There is some road noise below and early morning party noise on the weekends (1AM/2AM). We'd stay here again though, we enjoyed the experience of the street noises (tram, street cleaners, etc. and the church bells going off every hour). Karl

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was an awesome place to stay right in the heart of the old city! Easily within walking distance to anything in the city, and less than a mile from the main train station. The apartment itself was clean and spacious enough for two people. It has a great view of the cobbled streets and historic buildings surrounding it. Bozo was an excellent host, and his restaurant always smelled amazing!

Overall, this was a fantastic place to stay. We looked at cheaper options in Freiburg, but there were none that had nearly as good of a location. Well worth the money! We would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone looking to vacation in Freiburg!

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week in this comfortable and well maintained apartment. It’s in the old town, only 15 min or 3 tram stops from the station and just a few minutes from the forest. The owners Birgitte and Bozo speak English and French and are very welcoming and helpful, and they have an excellent restaurant downstairs (with an English menu). Freiburg is a beautiful city, and also a good centre for excursions into the hills – details on this and what’s on in town from the information centre in Rathausplatz. We also recommend the Feierling brewery and beer-garden just off Augustinerplatz near the apartment!

The apartment "Schwabentörle" is located in Upper Linden, in the middle of Freiburg's historic Old Town on Schwabentor, close to Castle Hill and Dreisam for. In downtown you can reach everything from here in a few minutes on foot. By tram (stop at 25 m distance) it takes to / from central station 7 minutes. There are regular connections to the Black Forest, Switzerland and France as well as a bicycle rental service and the opportunity to explore not only by train or hiking, but also biking the beautiful area around Freiburg. If you are traveling by car, you can park it in the Schlossberg or Schwabentorgarage. Public transport is so well developed in Freiburg, you do not need a car locally.

Freiburg is - not only for its unique position in the triangle - in every season worth a trip!
