I'm looking for recommendations for shops, restaurants, and sights in Freiburg, Germany. I'm also interested in German grocery store items. I'm also interested in day trip suggestions. I'll be spending a few weeks in Freiburg this summer and don't know anything. Danke!

I went to a spring research school there (10 days in March 2011) and stayed in the hostel by the black forest. I remember finding one falafel place where I could eat out, and an amazing Alnatura (the Trader Joe's of Germany) where I did all of my shopping. I spent my mornings and evenings in the black forest, and did a day trip out to some of the lakes and hiked around in melting snow. It was gorgeous! (But don't go to the towns that specialize in clocks. A good friend is from the area and she says No, no, no, no ... no.)

Thank you, Lutin. Altnatura sounds terrific. And the Black Forest!

I've never been to Freiburg as a vegan, so I can't help you there. I just know it's a really nice city! German supermarkets are generally quite vegan friendly. A lot of products are labelled 'vegan', especially meat substitutes. REWE, Edeka, Kaiser and Netto have the best range in my experience. I looked at the page of the Veganz vegan supermarket chain, and it looks like there are two DM drug stores in Freiburg that carry Veganz 'superfoods' and raw foods: http://veganz-blog.com/de/filialen/

Danke, Cornelie!

I've been here for a few days now and am doing quite well. I've shopped at Altnatura, Denn's BioMarkt, REWE, and DM and done extremely well. The Germans are lightyears beyond the French in terms of vegan offerings and labeling--I can't get over the veggie meat options--so many of them look so real. We haven't been to any restaurants, though many places in City Center have ice cream labeled vegan, and we even saw a vegan donar kebob place. It's ridiculously easy here, and very fun to explore all the options.

Aside from food, the See Park has been fantastic for swimming in this heat, and it's also really pretty.
