So unusual

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 :-)

Having visited Freiburg on a hot September day, the bachle were a refreshing attraction. Many locals were soaking their hot feet, while we even spotted children's boats floating in another one. The bachles are definitely an original part of the cityscape.

The bachle is cute and nice to see but not more then that, unless you with kids and then you can buy a little boat and float it down the street.
