What to do?

Freiburg with its charming Bächle (kerb-side water channels) and its interesting surrounding landscapes offers different possibilities for each taste during all seasons. At the time of our conference, the weather might already be spring-like (i.e., warm and sunny) but could also still be winterish. The skiing season in the mountains usually lasts until Easter.
