You’d be hard pushed to find a better place in Germany for biking than Freiburg. The beautiful old town is already an incredible starting point for great Tours, but there’s more, of course. Freiburg sees itself as a cycling city, surrounded by the magnificent nature of the Black Forest and with countless trails. As if that weren’t enough, Freiburg is considered the sunniest city in Germany. In this Collection, we present seven great Tours around Freiburg that create a colourful picture of what is possible here – from leisurely rides for the whole family to demanding challenges for endurance rides and crisp trail laps for the end of the day. It’s all here.
Before you set off, it’s worth visiting one of the two Giant test centres in Freiburg. At 2-rad Müller and Mount7 you can have your bike checked, talk shop for a while and treat yourself to a fresh coffee. Both shops are located in the southwest of Freiburg and are within easy reach of the city centre. Most Tours start directly at the main station so you can conveniently get to the start, even if you don’t live in Freiburg. The Tours finish in Freiburg’s beautiful old town – a lovely end to your adventure. Bicycles are just as much a part of the cityscape here as the numerous cosy cafés and restaurants. You can conclude your Tour soaking up the wonderful historical ambiance of the university town and plan your next trip right away whilst enjoying the last rays of sunshine.
The diverse Tours in this Collection offer something for everyone: If you fancy a short ride with as many trails as possible, then we recommend ‘The full pack of trails’ and ‘A trail to finish off the day’. Maybe you are in the mood for an ‘Adventure holiday for the whole family’? The ‘Casual to crisp’ is a great, fairly relaxed Tour that’s perfect for a weekend, whilst the ‘Hinterwaldkopf Tour’ tests your endurance in the mountains. The beautiful nature of the Black Forest, great views and, of course, lots of sun are always included – no matter which Tour you choose.
