The forest restaurant at St. Ottilien is located quite a fair walk / drive out of the city centre of Freiburg, accessible by either foot or car. On foot, it is possible to take a pleasant walk from Schlossberg's peak around the forest via the footpaths, not a short walk but pleasant on a sunny or dry day.
By car, one needs to follow the Kartäuserstrasse from the city centre and follow the signs from a relatively hidden left turn, up the hill in a zig-zag formation - the way is signposted all the way but at night one should drive slowly as the route has several sharp bends and is completely unlit.
St. Valentin is a forest restaurant situated near Guenterstal - MAP (Adobe PDF).
A fantastic place to end a summer walk in the forest and a warm enviting place to escape the winter cold.
Toscana Firenze is an Italian restaurant situated on the edge of the city centre, near the Siegesdenkmal in Friedrichring. In former times the restaurant was two separated restaurants virtually side-by-side and they have simply knocked through the wall to create one giant restaurant.
There are 220 seats and the staff claim that they can cope with groups of up to 100 people at any one time, so ideal for bus and coach tours.
This traditional inn looks back on a long history - it was first mentioned in 1680. It is located in a quiet rural suburb in the East of Freiburg very close to the Dreisam river. It has a large beergarden and there are tall trees providing shadow.
Very cosy dining rooms. Service was excellent, food outstanding. Better make reservations for dinner as they do get somewhat busy.
By most accounts, this is the longest continuously-run inn in Germany, in business since 1403. Peter Hansen, the Bären's 50th documented innkeeper, has greeted guests with his wife Monika since 1980.
Today, there are 25 guestrooms and the dining area is bright and cheerful with a dash of elegance.
The Waldrestaurant Zähringer Burg (Forest restaurant Zähringer Castle) is a pretty little restaurant located near the top of the rolling hills of Zähringen, a few hundred metres walk down from the 'Zähringer Burg' castle.
The restaurant is very popular with the locals and it is probably a good idea to reserve a table before making the journey.
Jaipur is the oldest and most popular of Freiburg's Indian restaurants. Situated upstairs in a shopping arcade (in 'Dietler Passage') with wheelchair/pram access only via the Harmonie cinema, this restaurant is both charming and friendly.
The restaurant won the prestigious "Best tasting foreign food restaurant of the year 2000 award" which is awarded to one restaurant Germany-wide every year.
Situated in the Wiehre district of Freiburg and within minutes from Freiburg's city centre on foot, Panjab is an excellent restaurant for enjoying an tasty, authentic Indian meal.
Set over two levels, one raised and the other just above ground level, the restaurant is a tightly packed-in, nicely decorated, warm place of wonderful aromas. Highly recommended.
