Freiburg

Our apartment is new and has underfloor heating, so we are toasty.  A nice improvement on Nolay which could be a bit chilly.

We left the car parked at the apartment and took a tram to the nearby city centre.  It was a surprisingly pleasant town, with a friendly atmosphere.

Throughout there are open canals with running (clear &clean) water.  These were apparently used in medieval times as part of the fire-fighting program.  Andrew even saw a bicycle with studded tires for the snow.  as yet we have not seen any snow, but it is forecast for New Year.



The Cathedral is impressive and had sumptuous amounts of coloured glass.
