A stroll through the lively old town of Freiburg is very worthwhile. Here, alongside large stores and specialised shops you will also find fashion boutiques, perfumeries, jewellery shops, book shops, art and antiques stores, and toy or leather stores. In one of the many souvenir shops you are guaranteed to find a postcard that captures Freiburg’s charm perfectly.

Stroll through the weekly market located on Münsterplatz (work days 7am to 1pm) and visit the colourful booths on the Rotteckring street, where North African and Indian goods are on sale, or stroll through the large shopping arcades like the “Black Forest City” (Schiffstraße) the “Karlsbaupassage/ Karlsbau arcade" (Karlsplatz) or the glass dome of the “Atrium” on Augustinerplatz.
