Welcome to Freudenstadt


The largest city in the Black Forest region of Germany, Freudenstadt is a great place to start a holiday in the Black Forest. The town is known for its sunny, warm weather, meaning visitors can enjoy its many outdoor attractions like the central town square, which is home to the largest marketplace in Germany. Most buildings in Freudenstadt were flattened in World War II, however there are still several interesting sites, including the Stadtkirche, which dates back to the 17th century.

While a holiday in Freudenstadt is worthwhile, most visitors come to enjoy the surrounding region, which boasts some of the best skiing, hiking and camping in the Black Forest. The Parkwald, Germany's largest nature reserve, is nearby, and has many miles of hiking trails. Fruedenstadt is conveniently situated on the Schwarzwald Hochstrasse highway, which stretches to Baden-Baden and meanders past many quaint shops and cafes, as well as popular ski slopes.

Information & Facts

German is the official language. English is also widely spoken and understood.

The unit of currency is the Euro (EUR), divided into 100 cents. ATMs and exchange bureaux are widely available. The major credit cards are becoming more widely accepted in many large shops, hotels and restaurants, although Germans themselves prefer to carry cash. Travellers cheques are best cashed at exchange bureaux, as banks often won't change them. The quickest and most convenient way to change money is to obtain cash from one of the ATM machines that are ubiquitous features on all German streets. Banks are closed on weekends, but exchange bureaux at airports and main railway stations are open daily from 6am to 10pm.
