There is a lot to do in Freiburg region for kids between the ages of 8 and 12. The wonderful setting of the old town of the black forest capital allows to teach history in an entertaining way. Children who have learned already about the basics of guilds and trade will find the stories very engaging and will learn that history can be entertaining, engaging and fascinating.
We offer this Freiburg tour for kids in two versions, each of them lasts 60 minutes.
If you book the version “guilds”, the meeting point is at Schwabentor, one of the originally five city gates in Freiburg. From here it is only a few steps till we reach the area of the old town where craftsmen lived. Along a man-made canal we find the homes and work places of millers, fisher and tanners as well as a bathhouse. Of course we will also visit the most famous resident of this area: the crocodile. The tour will end after one hour at the Martinstor.
If you book the version “tradesman”, you meet the guide at the Fischbrunnen on the market square. The aim of this tour is to explore trade in the medieval town. The old granary and the ornamental historic tax office pay homage to those days. Like many other towns in Europe, Freiburg used to have its own measurements. At the entrance to St Mary’s Cathedral we will explore them. But we can’t have a tour in Freiburg without talking about the Bächle.
Please note that the tradesmen tour is conducted on the market square and can only be offered Monday to Saturday after 02:30 pm.
