Freudenstadt is a town and capital of the district of the same name. Belonging to the state of Baden-Württemberg in southern Germany, the city is situated on the east end of the Schwartzwald, or Black Forest, region. Its location on a plateau by the forested mountain range provides it with fresh, clean air and has given it a reputation as a health resort. For that reason, Germans from every corner of the country like to visit the 34 square-mile (88 square-kilometer) town for a healthful vacation.

Visitors in search of hostels in Freudenstadt will have to look to nearby towns instead; Baden-Baden, Forbach, Ortenberg, and Rottweil are among the closest cities providing hostel accommodations.

Once you have decided on a hostel in the area, you can look forward to a quiet environment with friendly hosts and clean accommodations. You also can expect a complimentary breakfast buffet included in the price of your hostel stay. Although bedding normally is provided, be sure to bring towels, toiletries, and some snacks and drinks to be on the safe side.

When you are settled into the hostel of your choice, you will be ready to go sightseeing. From a nearby city, you can take one of four federal roads, the bus or the train to reach Freudenstadt. The first stop on your itinerary should be the town’s Marktplatz, which just happens to be the biggest market place in the country. With sculptures, fountains, and cafes with street-side seating, this is an idyllic European setting for a beautiful afternoon. On warm summer days, kids can be seen running through the sprinklers shooting water out of the ground while adults are enjoying coffee and cake outdoors. The Gothic-Renaissance style church on the south tip of the market is the perfect touch to this picturesque town square. Visitors can also stop by its museum which depicts the town’s history. Soon you will feel like you fit right in with the locals of this cute little city.
