This is my hometown. A city of two hundred thousand people, pulsating but still laid back due to its warm climate. Temperatures can reach up to 38 degrees Celsius in summer and in winter it is the mildest place. All up climate wise Freiburg has it all, lots of sunny days, a bit of snow and lots of sunny days...
