Freiburg is a city to fall in love with! A compact city centre, above-average amounts of sunshine, picturesque hiking trails in the surrounding countryside and a hotel that leaves nothing to be desired – welcome to Motel One Freiburg – naturally in a central location situated on Friedrichring 1 beside the Siegesdenkmal (victory monument) and opposite the entrance to the pedestrian zone.
In keeping with the spirit of Motel One, Motel One Freiburg is stylish, functional and luxurious; true to our hotel’s motto of 'great design for little money'.
Explore the city with the tram or by bike like a local. The Siegesdenkmal tram stop is just a short distance from Motel One Freiburg; from here you can discover the city by bus or by tram, or cycle along the city’s 400 kilometres of bike paths.
Thanks to the hotel’s central location, you can also discover Freiburg on foot; it’s just a six-minute walk to the Freiburg Minster, the Gothic cathedral from the Middles Ages that has become a key landmark of the city. Especially in July, visitors will find it difficult to pass up the Münsterplatz, when the square in front of the cathedral transforms into a sumptuous feast for all the senses during the Freiburg Wine Festival. But the church and neighbouring market are worth a visit during the other months of the year as well – not least because Freiburg’s best bratwurst stands can be found on the Münsterplatz, just a stone’s throw from your Motel One hotel, if you should feel the need for a little snack. From Münsterplatz, it’s another three-minute walk to the popular, Augustinerplatz. This open cobbled square has a welcoming, relaxing atmosphere; the cafés, restaurants and museums lining the edges of the square invite you to linger whilst the quiet splashing of the Freiburg Bächle – a network of small water-filled runnels – can be heard in the background.
The view from the Schlossberg is another one of Freiburg’s top highlights. The valley station of the Schlossberg funicular railway is just a five-minute walk from Motel One Freiburg. Any if you want to get a little closer to nature, then Freiburg is the perfect place for you – Schauinsland, the local mountain, is just 20 km away and a 40-minute drive from the Black Forest metropolis. Aside from the fantastic views of the surrounding countryside – hence the name, literally, ‘look into the country’ – there are many hiking trails around the mountain. You can also hover above the landscape in the Schauinsland cable car. There is a saying in Freiburg that anyone who comes once will stay forever! And of course, the most comfortable place to stay is in the Motel One Freiburg.
