Hi All:

Will be located to Freiberg in May.

Will really loves to have help to know more about this town, what it offers and what I can look out for when I'm there.

I know that it's near Dresden. Other than Dresden, where else can I visit? I read that there's lots of castles, but which one is a must for me to visit and see?

I'll be there for half a year, so would really like to hear more about this place.

Thanks,
sh

Hi,
I only spent a day in Freiburg on a much longer tour of Europe, but it is a very nice city and, apparently, has a very young population, thanks to it being a university town.
Shopping and history are good, there are trams and good transport, and the Black Forest (Schwarzwald) is not far away.
There is also a good theme park called Europa Park not too far away - and I'm not normally a fan of these places.

Enjoy

Hi Stevie:
Thanks for replying. But I think you've got the location wrong.
I'll be based in Freiberg, not Freiburg. I made the same mistake like you when I was trying to see where I'll be going.

Anyway, thanks alot for sharing. I do hope to be able to see blackforest if time permits.

Hello,

Don't know Freiberg but Dresden (towncenter) is nice. Sächsische Schweiz (Saxon Switzerland) near Dresden is a very nice area too with woodlands, mountains and impressive tower-like rock formations.
Last time I was there I staid in a castle converted into a hostel in Hohnstein. Apparently it still exists (website: http://www.nfhw.de)
I don't know how it is now but at the time it was really nice and very affordable.
