Dear guests of the Oberkirch,

this year, for the first time the

(previously pure) summer edition of

our magazine also features a part of

the autumn.

This change is happening for the fact

that - apart from the Theater Freiburg

- the other theatres tend to publish

their programme for the new season

later every year. Also the Christmas

Markets are announcing their exact

dates and their special activities later

than they used to and in our opinion

a magazine full of "to be announced"

would not make real sense.

So the autumn-winter edition of our

magazine will be postponed to mid-

September - in return wine festivals

in our region and the jazz festival in

Freiburg are featured in this edition


By the way, we now offer our guests

something entirely new - in

collaboration with the Breuninger

fashion store you can experience a

"Private Shopping Day" - read more

about it on pages 14 and 15.

We hope you'll spend a great summer

and autumn

Room Rates And Online Travel


Online Travel Agencies, such as, expedia etc for sure are

very comfortable to use - but many

users maybe are not aware of a side

effect the usage of these services

have: they are raising the costs for

hotels significantly.

They charge commission for each

booking - varying from agency to

agency and from region to region.

Right now, commission is usually

between 15% and 20%, at times

even 30%.

This is why our policy has been for

some time now that we our rates are

higher on any third-party site than

for the same booking made directly

with us. We are doing this, because

we do not want to allocate these

costs to the general rates.

Should that ever get impossible

(because of so-called "Best Price

Clauses" or other contractual clauses

we sadly would have to raise our

rates for everyone - something we

would regret deeply. This is why we

would appreciate very much if -

while booking directly - you'd allow

us more independence

It was not a decision made by the

concert organisation, though several

of last year’s concerts had to move

location to the smaller venue "club"

at the exhibition halls because they

didn’t sell well enough, and the two

largest concerts (Iron Maiden and

Die Toten Hosen) suffered from

major complaints about insufficient

drinks supply in extreme heat.

But there is another reason for the

open air concerts not taking place in

Freiburg this year: the preparations

for the construction of the new

stadium for Freiburg’s first league

football club SC Freiburg have

started, and until the works will be

completed there are no large

concerts taking place at this location

due to a lack of infrastructure for


If everything will be finished

according to the planning, we expect

a new series of open air concerts to

be planned for summer 2021.

Insider's Tip Open Air In The Park Bad Krozingen 19 th July to 2 nd August 2019

Fun combined with a good deed:

(Rubber) Duck Race in the Dreisam,

7 th July 2019:

Besides the yearly race with small

boats in the "Bächle" of Freiburg

("Bächlebootrennen") there is

another race involving water in

Freiburg - the (rubber) duck race in

the Dreisam.

The organisers expect welcoming

more than 3,000 spectators, when

8,000 rubber ducks will be sent out

to find out the "winning duck".

Apart from the fact that the race

alone is fun for people of all ages, it

is also combined with a good cause:

Every interested person can buy a lot

- one duck will then race with the

number of his lot. All revenues will

be given to the clowns entertaining

children in the teaching hospital.

Prizes you can gain include shopping

vouchers and vouchers for the

Badeparadies Schwarzwald.

The rubber ducks will start on 7th

July 2019, 2 p.m. from the bridge at

the "Fabrikstraße" in Freiburg.

Summer In Freiburg


The music festivals in and around

Freiburg are the centre of the

cultural life in our region during

summer, of course.

But there are several events of

cultural interest beyond these music


44 th Rathaushofspiele

From 20th July 2019 there will be the

"Rathaushofspiele" - for the 44 th time

in Freiburg.

They will play "Amphitryon“, a

comedy of errors by Peter Hacks this

year. We do not have any information

yet regarding the fact, until which

date the Rathaushofspiele will be

performed this year - however, usually

the performances continue until end

of August/debut of September.

If you buy your ticket early, you have

the chance to buy an all-weatherticket,

so you can enjoy the play even

if it rains (then the location will be

the Wallgraben-Theater, which only

has half the seats available

compared to the open air version)

You can find more information at


Theatre, Organ Concerts, Summer Programme

Theater Freiburg

The second season of the new artistic direction of the Theater Freiburg will

continue until 24 th July 2019 and there are some more highlights to be

Kitchen) by Arnold Wesker for example. You can find more information at

Interview With Alexander Entov, Managing Director Breuninger Freiburg

For anyone who does not yet know Breuninger, what makes your offer unique?

Our profile includes a lot of “mainstream” products, meaning we are very

strong in the medium-priced segment, but we are also capable and more than

willing to serve the top end of the fashion world.

What is the idea behind “Private Shopping”?

Nowadays you can buy clothing everywhere, so the simple act of shopping is

nothing special any more. Since I started working at Breuninger, I have

specialized on making us stand out in what we offer. Our ideal is to be a large

fashion store with the best service possible and individual advice just like in a

small boutique store.

So in what way does the “private shopping” stand out?

The difference to “normal shopping” is that we prepare the session for you, we

reserve a private room for you and your personal shopping coach is reserved

for you privately. This enables them to perform a very unique customer service

just for you. If we know about it well in advance we can also arrange for

special wishes and offer products you can normally not find in the department

store. Also, your private shopping event is arranged for the time that suits you

best. In special cases we can also come to the hotel, with a pre-selection of


We also take care of smaller “issues” like “forgot to take my shirt” or “shirt is in

a bad state to use” – we can arrange for a new shirt to await you upon your

arrival. And for regulars we can extend the experience in a way that we can

prepare finger food and drinks to make their shopping session even more


And for regulars we can extend the experience in a way that we can prepare

finger food and drinks to make their shopping session even more worthwhile.

Why did you choose Hotel Oberkirch for this cooperation?

We were looking for hotels in the vicinity of the department store and with

whom we share the same type of guest – and Hotel Oberkirch fulfils both

criteria perfectly.

Mr. Entov, thank you for your time, we are looking forward to working together

for the benefit of our guests!

Practical Matters

Do you need a Breuninger Card to

book "Private Shopping"?

Is there a minimum number of

people or am I expected to spend a

minimum turnover in the store?

Even though the customer card

makes it easier for us to prepare your

shopping event, because we can use

your shopping history in order to

identify your interest, you don’t need

to have a card to book a “private

shopping” event.

There also is no minimum turnover

but one needs to be aware that this

way of shopping does not make

sense if one is only looking to

purchase one shirt – we have

excellent customer service in the

individual departments of the store

for that.

If I have now bought new matching

outfits, will Breuninger help me with

the transport of my purchases?

Not only we will help, we can deliver

all of your purchases directly to the

hotel. You can just enjoy the rest of

your day without having to plan the


Besides “Private Shopping”,

Breuninger also offers a rooftop bar

with view of the cathedral. What are

the opening hours ?

Our Rooftop Bar for up to 120 guests

is open Wednesdays through

Saturdays from 2 p.m. to 11 p.m. and

can be accessed via the main
