The stained glass in the cathedral is beautiful. Many of the windows were sponsored by various professional guilds many centuries ago.

And we also found this disturbing stained glass in a small church. Never seen anything quite like it.
The sidewalks in Freiburg are all made of river stone. Tradition dictates that a symbol of the business be incorporated into the sidewalk in front of the building.
Our friends Fabienne and Michel and their kids met us in Lörrach for lunch and we also visited the Vitra design museum, which was really fun (and a better choice on a very snowy day than the hike we'd planned!)
One of the goals was to go sledding in the Black Forest. Ironically, there was too much snow and we couldn't safely drive to any of the areas where there's good sledding. So we did a little in town and a little on the way back with our friends in Neuthard. We also stopped at the Baden Baden Christmas Market.
