ROL Cruise recommends…
A village of half-timbered houses
No trip to Freudenberg would be complete without looking over the gorgeous, half-timbered houses. These black and white beauty’s stand pretty in rows, making a picture-perfect scene that you can only imagine belongs in a Disney film. Well preserved and the pride of the town, walk around the cobbled streets to soak in the Bavarian feel.
Germany certainly doesn’t have any shortage of amazing forests and gorgeous vistas and Freudenberg is a great place to access some of them on a hike. Get out into rural Westphalia and breathe in the scenic mountain landscape around you.
When travelling here on a cruise you get the opportunity to celebrate Oktoberfest. A traditional festival that is popular worldwide, enjoy a night of drinking, frivolity and music. And, although you may have sampled Oktoberfest elsewhere in the world, it’s really true that there’s no place like home.
Visit the city of Siegen
For those who prefer a day in the city, Siegen is only a short ride to the east of Freudenberg. This university city has a young soul but an old appearance, which means you can spend your time here in myriad different ways. So, whether you want to learn more about the areas past or hit the shops, you’ll be able to do that here.
