    • Lorrach Restaurant

      Lörrach Yesterday

      Hello....I am looking for a nice German cuisine restaurant in Lorrach. We will be staying in Basel for a week in October and wanted to take the train up from Basel to Lorrach for dinner one night (to get out of Basel for a night). We would obviously like something near the station or within reasonable walking distance. We love rustic food and something local and authentic german food would be nice. Any help would be appreciated.

      Geltungsbereich des Aktionsangebots Baden-Württemberg-Ticket

      by JHR Online Now Mar 7, 2013 at 9:22 AM

      Considering a trip with my wife, taking in Elsess/Alsace. Fly to Euro Airport (Basel), then an anti-clockwise, or clockwise, circuit by train and/or bus taking in Colmar, Strasbourg, Freiburg, Breisach etc. If we had to travel from Basel to Freiburg, I am sure the best (cheapest) option would be to use a DB Baden-Württemberg-Ticket for 2 people. My German is not bad, but and I have looked at this PDF, bahn.de/regional/view/mdb/pv... . But could a German-speaker please confirm my understanding that the ticket would be valid from our Swiss departure point (Basel), and be valid on local transport (RVF) in Freiburg when we got there. Is there any problem buying the Baden-Württemberg-Ticket at Basel station?

Aus den Irish Pubs in den Goldenen Sternen eingezogen: Der Sternen-Quiz-Abend.Der Sternen-Quiz-Abend findet jeden Montag ab 21 Uhr in unserem Nebenzimmer statt".), there will be a quiz using a 'live video link' to some Irish bars in Freiburg. I may try to wangle my way onto a team using my natural British charm (!) and limited aptitude for the German language... Or if anyone attending this quiz and reading this - a very, very remote possibility! - needs another team member (degree in European Humanities, semi-fluent in five languages, OK on music pre-1980 and British sport!), please let me know...

      Schauinsland, weather (snow?), musical urinals

      Just under two weeks till my trip to Freiburg. Can't wait.

      A bit sad to learn that the Schauinslandbahn is out of service (Nov 2012 til Apr 2013) for maintenance. Someone knew that I was coming! Question: is it worth going up to Schauinsland by one of the substitute bus services?

      Question: What are the chances of snow? For weekend 10th/11th Nov? I am going to see SC Freiburg play Hamburg SV. I checked out SC Freiburg's latest game, and saw images of players playing in a snowstorm! ( bundesliga.com/en/liga/news/... )

      Final, trivial, question: does anyone know which bar these urinals are located? metro.co.uk/weird/651215-ger... I'm not surprised musicians complain about them!

      We are visiting freiburg in first week of may and going to stay there for 3 days. We have a eurail pass and are travelling with a 2 yr old. following is the itenery we are planning:

      Day 1- go around freiburg, munsterplatz etc. I read that Schauinsland and Schlossberg are close to freiburg. how do we go about planning tour for these two. we do not have car. will our eurail pass cover bus/trams in freiburg or we can buy some ticket for the bus/trams in the black forest area?

      Day 2- visit titisee and Schluchsee- since both are closeby . i have the train timetables. But is there any entrance fee to visit the lake? if we drop Schluchsee (since both are lakes),what else can we cover on that day? something closeby?

      Day 3- visit Triberg and baden-baden- we r planning to go to triberg via train although it takes 1 hr 45 mins since we have a pass. In triberg we can see the waterfall, cuckoo clock. Is there any entrance fee to visit the waterfall? is the black forest museum worth visiting?. In baden baden, we will not go for spa or casino as we have an infant. just to go around the city. what is the best way to see the city? I heard something about RVF ticket, if we buy rvf ticket, will it cover land transport in all black forest area?

      i have made this itenery based on reviews abut the place ..dont know much about them. please suggest any other place we can include in our itenery.

      Heading to Freiburg next month, need to keep busy for 5 days alone

      by dianaf86 Online Now Sep 19, 2008 at 6:38 AM

      Hello there! I'm accompanying my boyfriend on a business trip to Freiburg next month. We have plans for the weekends (Munich, then Zurich) but during the week I'll be on my own all day and pretty much every evening since my boyfriend will be working and networking Mon-Fri.

      I've never been to Europe before and I'm very excited, but I don't know much about Freiburg (I'd never heard of it before, to be honest) or how to keep busy all week. Are there tour group companies in the area? Cities nearby that would be easy for a non-German speaking person to get to (and safely back from)? I'd rather find a few day long tour group to join than go out and about alone (I imagine it will get pretty lonely by the end of the week), but since I probably will be alone, any tips in general for what to do?

      Thanks!
