InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Freiburg

Hello to all Americans in Freiburg! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Freiburg? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Freiburg which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Freiburg offers a great quality of life. The popular tourist destination is a very green city known for its university — Freiberg Universität is one of the oldest in Germany — the nearby Black Forest, the city’s medieval old town, and much more! With the excellent public transportation system based on tram and bus services, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in Vauban, Rieselfeld, Betzenhausen, which are at most a 20-minute commute away from Freiburg’s center.

Although Freiburg has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Freiburg, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
