Cold Feet or Wedded Bliss?

As you wander the Altstadt, watch out for the gurgling Bächle, streamlets once used to water livestock and extinguish fires. Today they provide welcome relief for hot feet on sweltering summer days. Just be aware that you could get more than you bargained for: legend has it that if you accidentally step into the Bächle, you’ll marry a Freiburger or a Freiburgerin.
