Freiburg is known as an 'eco-city'. In recent years it has attracted the German Federal Authority for Radiation
Protection, solar industries and research; the 'green political party' in Germany had a stronghold here.
The citizens of Freiburg are known in Germany for their love of cycling and recycling. In June 1992, the Freiburg
city council adopted a resolution that it would only permit construction of the building with minimum energy,
on municipal land, and all new buildings must comply with certain low energy specifications. Low-energy
housing uses the solar power passively as well as actively. In addition to solar panels and collectors on the
roof, providing electricity and hot water, many passive features use the energy obtained from the sun, to
regulate the temperature of the rooms.

A frequent fast train service is available to Berlin, Basel and Interlaken Ost stations.

Freiburg has an extensive pedestrian zone in the city centre where no automobiles are allowed. Freiburg also
has an excellent public transit system, operated by the city-owned VAG-Freiburg. This is anchored by a continually
expanding web of tram routes, together with feeder buses. Freiburg Haupt Bahnhof is on the main railway lines
between Basel, Berlin, and major Swiss and German cities.

Relatively warm and sunny climate, scenic beauty and easy access to Black Forest, Freiburg became to be a hub
for regional tourism. The city has an unusual system of gutters, which is called as Bachle, that run throughout
its centre. These Bachle, once used to provide water to fight fires and feed livestock, are constantly flowing
with water diverted from the Dreisam. These Bachle were never used for a sewage, as such the usage could lead
to harsh penalties, even in the Middle Ages. During the summer, the running water provides natural cooling of
the air, and offers a pleasant, gurgling sound.
