Your text about Freiburg is ok, except that you don't pronounce the Münster miinster. I live in the vine-growing area south of Freiburg. I think you have to add some things to your entry:

1) Freiburg is German's solar capital.

2) The SC-Freiburg is a very popular soccer club in Germany's first division and it's famous for its fair supporters.

3) At the egde of every street in Freiburg, there is a Bächle. A Bächle is a very small river. During the Middle Ages they needed those Bächle to keep the city clean.

the Bachle are fun as long as you don't step into one of them as I did during my last trip to Freiburg. Everyone watching me had a good laugh at a stupid foreign visitor. Cheers. By the way, the Rulander wines from the Breisgau are the best German wines, I think. But they are hard but they to find in North america where I live.

The story goes that if you step in a Bachle, you will marry a Freiburg local.

@AdaHaze:
the story 'bout "marry a Freiburg local" seems to be true:
before we know each other, my wife visited Freiburg and stepped into a "Bächle", not knowing about the legend. Soon after we set up our marriadge-day, we went to Freiburg, my hometown. Walking in the city I told her the legend, not knowing, that she HAS stepped already into it - I never forget that funny face of her! smiley - smiley
