Freiburg – the city in Southern Germany
One can explore a city, discover the city or conquer the city. Freiburg should be felt. It is the unique interaction of political, economic, geographic, demographic and mental factors which determine the character of this city.
A traditional city with 900 years of history. A magical city with winding small alleys, picturesque courtyards, unique façades of houses, numerous architectural monuments and sights. And the famous "Bächle".
At the same time, it is a modern scientific location with several colleges, the Albert-Ludwigs-University and an idyllic city center with large shopping centers and small individual stores. The Mediterranean flair, the down-to-earth coziness and hospitality of the people and the pulsation of a cosmopolitan university town come together and unite to the unique Freiburg spirit..
The Colombi – part of the History of Freiburg
In 1775, at the age of 26, Count Antonio de Colombi y Payet, born in Bossa, a town close to Gerona in Spain, founded a prosperous business in St. Petersburg, with wines and colonial products. He expanded it to an internationally renowned company. The name of Colombi therefore has been associated very early with delightful living. At the same time, he is the consul general of the Spanish government.
Due to his great reputation Czar Alexander I gives him and his business exceptional privileges. In 1808, at the age of 60, Count Colombi fell in love with the 27-year-old baron’s daughter of Bode and married her in St. Petersburg.
Their daughter, Maria Gertrudis Antonia Countess of Zea Bermudez Colombi, builds in 1858 - on the highest point of the Colombi Park - a Spanish style castle and gives it her name. It miraculously withstands unharmed all the troubles of the upcoming wars.
