I am often in Freiburg and am from San Diego

Border city at the south west corner with high cost of living in relation to earning due to its weather and desirable location. Mountains near by, ocean is missing but at least the Bodensee is not so far.

I cannot think of any German city which is really like an Ami city. The SD FB thing is probably just me.

I too obviously disagree; but it might be the fact that Germany tourism offices seem to wish to promote Freibourg as having "almost mediterranean" climate (even if it is quite far to be) and ambiance...

It might be warmer than most of Germany it still is quite far to San Diego's climate...

OK, there are some similarities.

Since we went to San Diego fo 4 weeks in summer (actually La Mesa, slightly hotter) I hate the German winter even more. Wished I could spent the cold months in San Diego...

Gruß nach Hockenheim (which is just as warm as Freiburg)

We do not have that over here in the leading European countries. The worst neighborhood in The Netherlands alone is as wealthy as an average American home.
I definitely agree there. I think the closes US city to German cities are probably Portland or Seattle. Frankfurt when I visited there this month. It definitely felt like Portland with the trams and overall layout of the city. Portland is urban like Frankfurt, but on a smaller scale unlike New York or London.

This is a weird question. I've been to Berlin, which feels like any big North American city as far as lifestyle goes, but at the same time, I would not be able to nail it down to any specific US or Canadian metro....because it just isn't the same....even though it is. Kind of.

Am I making sense?

^^^ huh?? New Braunfels similar to what German city???
Not by architecture, not by lifestyle, "German" restaurants do not serve original German food, there is not even a German deli....
