Tramscape Tramway Photographs


Freiburg, Germany : September 7th and 8th, 2000

All tram routes meet at Bertoldsbrunnen in the historic centre of this south Germany city, which retains much of its old charm despite severe bomb damage in World War II. Trams still pass through two of the city's old gates - Martinstor and Schwabentor on the routes to Gunterstal and Littenweiler respectively. Route 4 to the countrified suburban village of Gunterstal is shown in detail, as is route 1 to Littenweiler (as far as Alter Messplatz).

Bounded by wooded hillside to the east, Freiburg has expanded predominantly to the west, and to serve these growing areas, the tramway was extended to cross the main-line railway tracks at Bismarckallee (see photo below), reaching Paduaallee in 1983 and Landwasser two years later. The route from Stadttheater to Paduaallee is covered in detail, including the junctions at Technisches Rathaus (where a new link to Friedrich-Ebert-Plaz opened in 1986 allowed the closure of the tram tracks in front of the Hauptbahnhof on the busy Bismarckallee) and Runzmattenweg, where routes 5 and 6 branch to serve two parts of the developing Weingarten area.

New "Combino" trams from Siemens, numbered from 270 upwards, are now in operation on line 1, augmenting the already modern fleet of Duewag vehicles.
