Freiburg is situated on the southern tip of the Black Forest. Some of you might recognize the name. It's what inspired a great deal of Grimm's fairytales, Hansel and Gretel being the most popular. It gets it's name from the mass of dark evergreen trees that are scattered about the hills, creating an almost foreboding feeling when looking at them.
Nicole and I spent most of the day walking around Freiburg, taking in the art and beauty of this little town. Around 6 pm, we hiked up to a really nice lookout spot where locals frequent to have a few beers (25 cents a beer! and it was good, too!) and watch the sun set over Freiburg. We had a nice time just talking aboout everything from family to movies. As we were coming back down, it began to rain, so we spent the rest of the night in the hostel to eat dinner and play some pool with other backpackers.
