After flying to Frankfurt we grabbed a rental car and started driving towards the French Alps. When tiredness hit us we checked the internet to find a town that might accommodate two travellers. It was fortuituous that we found Freiburg, Germany.
Prior to setting off the next morning we found a convenient McDonalds for breakfast and discovered that Freiburg was a medieval city with some fantastic buildings which had some beautifully ornate windows. Even the newish library got into the act with a clever bit of signage covering the window.
