The 28-year-old centre-back will make the switch on a free transfer at the end of the season, at which point his contract with Gladbach expires.
"I wanted to do something very special again in my career and there is nothing more special for me than returning to Sport-Club and my home area," said Ginter, who was born in Freiburg.
"The development of the entire club, the potential of the team, as well as the special way of interacting with club officials in recent weeks - to find all this in my home area can be described as a stroke of luck in today's times. It's simply a perfect fit," added the German international.
Ginter will replace Nico Schlotterbeck, who will be leaving Freiburg for Borussia Dortmund.
