Real fun to wander around in the city with water everywhere. Just be sure the look where you are going to avoid to step in the Bächle accidentally. And kids can use the water to play with little boats.

Not only do these waterways clean the city, but they provide entertainment for children who can float small boats in them. This is really a special attraction to Freiburg that I would not miss if visiting.

It's pretty cool to be walking through the centre of the city and see the little canals everywhere. Worth looking out for

Before visiting Freiburg I had no idea these were here...it was a pleasant surprise and a neat part of the town. It was fun to walk along beside the water canals that were just there. Kept on "on their toes" or they would be joining the children splashing through them. These beautiful Baechle are in stark contrast to what would... More

I think this is a quite unique attraction. This water system allows to evacuate all dirt from the streets. On hot days it supplies some freshness and children love to walk in the streams. Certainly worth to explore.

If you are visiting Freiburg you must see Baechle, they are small canals with water. You can see Baechle only in Freiburg.

Really a quaint part of Freiburg. They were running very strongly during Christmas Market. Keeps you on your toes because November is not a time to accidentally step in one!

I can't imagine Freiburg without the "Bächle"!!!!! :-) Especially in summer to put your feed in the cold water is so refreshing.

Haven't seen these anywhere else in our travels; they really are quaint! Great fun for younger kids to sail small toy boats on (available from local sellers of course)! Just don't step into one by accident; local tradition has it that you have to marry a local if you do and that would upset the wife :-)
