They are a world-famous tourist attraction, which exists in this form only in the sunny city in the southwest. It is undisputed: The Freiburger Bächle belong to Freiburg like the cathedral and the Black Forest, no city tour or travel guide can do without them.

As a Bächleputzer, he keeps a daily eye on the many watercourses from the Middle Ages that run through the historic center of the Black Forest metropolis in Baden. The small channels are called Bächle in the Alemannic dialect, and Alemannic is also Stocky's mother tongue.

During the Bächle walk with our Stocky, he will take you on a walk through Freiburg's old town along selected Bächle, mind you in his Alemannic dialect. He gives exclusive insights behind the scenes of the Bächle system and into probably the oldest profession in the city in Breisgau, that of the Bächleputzers.
