Rhine Cruise - Day 2, Freiburg

Model of Medieval Freiburg
After lunch we boarded a bus for Freiburg & Breisach. By the way, we cruised with AmaWaterways and they provided QuietVox headsets in our cabin which we used on all of our walking tours and recharged them in our cabin. They also provided umbrellas, robes and slippers for our use onboard. Whenever we returned from touring, they had hot towels, hot mulled wine, and hot peach tea, and no security to go through. All in all, it was more pleasant than the large ocean cruise ships, not to mention the complimentary soft drinks, beer, and wine for lunch and dinner, and it was never hard to find a table to sit at.

Freiburg Munster (cathedral)
Inside Munster
On our way to Freiburg we saw the Black Forest, grape vines, American barracks (soon to become much needed apartments), and strawberry and asparagus fields. First we toured the Munsterplatz, then the history museum, and saw the customs house. I almost bought some crystal antique wine glasses, but when I found out they were from France, they didn't seem like a good souvenir from Germany (I forgot we would be in France the next day - ha! ha!)
