A Jewel in the Black Forest

By Linda Tancs

Over 900 years’ strong, Freiburg is a medieval city in Germany nestled at the foot of the Black Forest. Billed as the sunniest city in the nation, it’s known for some unusual things, like a long, red sausage and walkable gutters. As for the wurst, it’s over 13 inches long. The red, skinless barbecue sausage is, not surprisingly, nicknamed “Queen of the Wursts.” The gutters are small water channels flowing throughout the streets in the Old Town, fed by the Dreisam River. Don’t be surprised to see some paper boats or rubber ducks floating by.
