Freiburg, western gateway to the Southern Black Forest, has the happy-go-lucky attitude of a thriving university community. Located close to the borders of France and Switzerland, in a secluded wine-rich corner of Baden-Württemberg state in Germany, it is endowed with a wealth of historical attractions, led by the superb Münster. Add to this a lively cultural scene and an excellent range of restaurants, bars and clubs, and it's easy to understand why Freiburg is such a terrific place to visit.
Known throughout Germany for Albert Ludwig University of Freiburg, good weather, and vineyards, Freiburg is considered by Germans to also be a desirable place to live.
Due to its secluded location in the "Dreiländereck" (Three-country corner) and being fairly removed from any other larger German cities, locals will frequently go shopping in France and Switzerland for their respective native products and go to museums and theaters in Basel or Zürich.
The 17th International Conference on Miniaturized Systems for Chemistry and Life Science (MicroTAS 2013) will be held at the Messe Freiburg in Freiburg, Germany.
The Messe Freiburg is located near the University of Freiburg campus and is accessible by train and local bus. For more information on how to reach the Messe Freiburg, please visit our Transportation Page
