Location information for Freiburg

Introduction

The German city of Freiburg usually receives the addition 'im Breisgau', to distinguish it from the city of the same name in Switzerland (Fribourg in French). It's a beautiful and relaxed university city on the verge of the Black Forest. Freiburg is a good operating base for trips in the surroundings, not only in Germany, but also in France and Switzerland.

Population

The city has over 220,000 inhabitants.

Location

Freiburg is located in the southwest of Germany in the German state of Baden-Württemberg, along the Dreisam River. The Black Forest lies east of town, with the visible peaks the Rosskopf (737 meters) and the Bromberg. The hilly Kaiserstuhl region lies in between Freiburg and the Rhine, west of the city.

Economy

The university is the city's largest employer. Because of the university, numerous small businesses specialized in solar energy, ICT and biotechnology have settled in Freiburg. Tourism also plays an important role: Freiburg is the gateway to the Black Forest. There's also winegrowing in the surroundings; the city borders with three German wine areas: Markgräfler Land, Tuniberg and Kaiserstuhl.

Airports

The nearest international airport is EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg, which lies on French territory but is exploited jointly by France and Switzerland. From Freiburg the airport can be reached by rental car via freeway A5 (distance: almost 75 kilometers).

Public Transport

Freiburg has an excellent public transport system consisting of buses and streetcars. Service is maintained by several companies, but there's a uniform ticket system: public transport tickets are valid on buses, streetcars and local trains.

Traffic and Parking

A large part of Freiburg's center is a pedestrian area. You'll have little trouble finding your way around the city, but street parking is fairly expensive. You therefore better park your rental car in one of the parking garages around the center, where you pay less than in the street.

Hotels

Freiburg has a reasonable choice of accommodations, mainly guesthouses and hotels in the budget and midrange category. Because of the many sunshine hours in Freiburg, a lot of energy is generated by sun power. Hotel Best Western Premier Victoria prides itself on being 'the world's most ecological hotel'. Electricity is generated by solar panels and wind turbines.

Frequently asked questions

Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
