Freiberg

We know life can be tough. Sometimes all you want to do is pack up your things and take a long vacation. Well, what’s stopping you? We’ve hunted high and low for the crème de la crème of eco-friendly hotels across the globe…

2013 is the year for quirky eco-friendly holidays, so this week we are taking you away on the ultimate retreat…

Hotel Victoria is situated in the South-West of Germany, in the heart of the city Freiburg im Breisgau. If you’re fast (or lucky) enough with booking you can even get one of the many rooms that look out onto the rolling lush green of the Colombi Park.

This stunning hotel isn’t just top notch for a city visit, it’s also doing good for Mother Nature too. The eco hotel use green energy sources like sun, wind and water to power the building. They even have solar panels on the roof amongst the many deck chairs for guests to enjoy the stunning view over Freiburg.

Get active with a long relaxing walk in one of the local parks or wander into the city to discover the exquisite restaurants. There’s also room for fun antics at the Europapark which is just 30km away. If that leaves with you wanting more, well the hotel is only a few minutes’ walk to the Münsterplatz and the central station too – the adventures are endless!
