Munzingen Village & Vorgrimmler Winery, Freiburg, Germany

Munzingen is a small village and a part of Freiburg im Breisgau. The village is surrounded by lots of vineyards and has some amazing panoramic views. When staying for the night in locations like these you don’t want to stop at large hotels, it is much more satisfying to stop at B&Bs or family-run mini hotels. We were fortunate to discover the Vorgrimmler Winery and their amazing 2 apartments, available for booking via Airbnb. The hosts Majbritt and Klaus Vorgrimmler are great hosts and will help out with tips about the area, as well as a winery tour and a wine tasting.

First photos of Munzingen and of the surroundings, the photos of the Vorgrimmler Winery and wine are closer to the end of the post.
