If you want fantastic German beer and food, go to this place. Here they will serve you good beer for a good price, on Wednesday they do serve to beer for the price of one if you are a student .There is also a perfect view from its tables. I really like this restaurant.

We visited on a Sunday afternoon and as we were too early to order food from the eatery in the main building visited the beer garden. Tables are in a tree shaded area, it’s basic but that’s all you need for a beer garden. Views from tables at the sides overlook the town etc. I had the Currywurst and chips... More

I mentioned this biergarten on my review of the datt schlossberg restaurant. So apparently it has another name. This is great for drinking beer with a great view of Freiburg and the forest. They have a small shop serving beer snacks including schnitzel.

Great relaxed place for a beer or a cold drink in the sunshine, whilst looking over the lovely city of Freiburg. Right in the heart of the city, but up a short (steep) walk to a garden area - this place is a magic spot for a break in the day, and to quench your thirst. We didn't eat -... More

On our first night in Freiburg, we went to this restaurant for dinner. The view was spectacular and well with the little hike up the hill to get there. The food was ok, nothing special, but it is worth a visit just to sit and enjoy the view. We sat right near the fence so had a great outlook over... More

We stayed in Freiburg on our way to visit our favorite clock maker/master carver in Triberg. We stumbled upon a city fest downtown and met up with a few locals. They told us we would be remiss if we didn't make it to the castle hill biergarten. We walked the few hundred meters and found it to be a very... More

By showing your student card you can get a discount for beers. I love the Apfelschoerle, it was nice. I visit this place twice during summer, the second visit was even nicer than the first. It was a good place and a crowded one, too. You can see Freiburg from the top, it was fantastic to watch the city below... More

Kastaniengarten became a quick favorite for my husband and me on our recent Freiburg trip and we returned numerous times. The view of the city below is fantastic and the beer is cold and refreshing. We ate once, sharing a schnitzel, fries, and a pretzel. The food was just okay. We mostly came during the day, but came once at... More

Lovely beer garden above Freiburg. Ok beer, good pretzels but great views all around. You can hike further above the beer garden for even better views. Nice low key experience.
