The Arboretum Freiburg-Günterstal is an arboretum maintained by the University of Freiburg. It is located in Günterstal in the Städtischen Forstamt Freiburg at Günterstalstraße 71, Freiburg, Baden-Württemberg, Germany, and open daily without charge.
The arboretum dates back to 1896, or earlier, when its first Douglas fir plantations were created to investigate their uses in local forestry. These early plantings focused primarily on useful trees from North America and Japan. Large-scale plantings occurred between 1901-1911 when several hundred thousand foreign trees were planted. After World War II, many rare species were added.
