This is a picture of my favorite street in Freiburg! I’m living in the ‘old town’ and absolutely love how this entire part of the city is a car-free zone. There are narrow, cobblestone streets winding everywhere with a few plazas by the Munster and the Rathaus (city hall). Outdoor seating for restaurants is found all over this area, people are bustling around in shops, and down the main corridor is the tram line leading to the rest of the Freiburg area. Having this huge pedestrian zone is a major part of Freiburg’s economy since big and small stores are all located here and see so much business. I certainly have made my contribution!
