Fraunhofer Institutes Freiburg

History: Freiburg 's historical town center surrounds the cathedral and the market place. The market rights were given to Freiburg by Konrad of Zähringen in 1120. The gothic cathedral from the late middle ages was initiated in 1200 by Berthold V, the last Duke of Zähringen. For a long period of time Freiburg was under the rule of the Habsburg monarchy.
 University: The university's 20.000 students account for about one tenth of the total population of Freiburg. Freiburg University was founded in 1457 and is among the oldest ones in Germany.
 Transportation: The VAG tram network of 4 tram lines and 21 bus lines will help you to explore Freiburg and the surrounding area. The night buses will bring you safely home on the weekend. If you are a student you are entitled to buy a Semesterticket valid Freiburg and surroundings for 6 months. The alternative is using a bike and most students indeed own one.
 Geography: Its proximity to the Black Forest makes Freiburg attractive to tourists from all over the world. The Schauinsland, the local mountain of Freiburg, is very popular for a day tour. Being close to Mulhouse and Strasbourg (France) and Basel and Zurich (Switzerland) Freiburg is politically, educationally and economically very active in the trinational context.

Climate: Freiburg , also called Germany's Tuscany, is one of the warmest and sunniest places in Germany (1815 sun hours per year). These are ideal conditions for wine growing. A wine tasting tour in the nearby Kaiserstuhl and Markgräflerland is an opportunity to discover villages that have kept their historical character over the centuries.

Leisure time: Freiburg has an active cultural life (theatre, outdoor festivals, concerts, cinemas and museums) and many students come to join its renowned conservatory. Outdoor activities such as hiking, swimming, skiing, snowboarding or skating are possible using public transportation.
