Food in Freiburg
Have you ever heard of Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte? Yes? Then you're absolutely right in Freiburg!
If not, it's about time to try this internationally known speciality! We can recommend trying this absolutely delicious (and heavy) cake in the Café Schmidt near Stadttheater or in Sedan Café, which isn't far either. You can enjoy the city's atmosphere by sitting outside and just watching people. It's always nice, and by chance you can meet the coach of the German soccer team Joachim Löw in his favourite Café :)
In case you're up for some real meal, go and try Brennnessel. Located in the lovely quarter Stühlinger (Eschholzstraße), you should hurry to get a place between 6.00 and 7.30 p.m. (or for a later dinner between 10.30 and 11.30 p.m.) to try Spaghetti for a very low price. A huge portion of Spaghetti Bolognese - a must-do when you're a student in Freiburg!
Cheap and very good Pizza is provided by the restaurant Taormina near Schwabentor. They also offer a delivery service for lazy Sundays....
Drinks in Freiburg
Nightlife - a student's undeniable interest. We are German, so we drink beer, that's all there is to say. When it's warm outside, we love to have a cold beer under the blue sky, preferably in a Biergarten. Good ones in Freiburg are Kastaniengarten (halfway up the Schlossberg) and Feierling, with its own brewery next door. But special places to hang out with friends are the stairs of Augustinerplatz and the Platz der alten Synagoge.
A speciality in Baden, our county, is the wine. You will notice immediately when you're in Freiburg that there is a lot of sun throughout the year, which is the perfect condition for a good, tasty wine. You will find many different kinds of wines, and in summer, there are several wine festivals in and around Freiburg. Don't miss it, you'll love it!
There is one other special drink in Freiburg: Joster! If you like sweet, fruity shots, you should definitely try it, e.g. in MudomBar, which is unbeatable when it comes to prices. But: students only! Don't forget to bring your Student ID. If you want to stay in the city centre, you find a huge variety of shots in Shooters. Go there to find out how they mix the shot "Dreisam"....
Afterwards, go out to have a drink in the Cohibar, one of our partners, or if you're up for dancing, check out Mamita!
