Looks like a German city bike from the 70's or so.

Welcome, cristibear! The link is not working for me, but if jmeb's pic shows your bike: nice! It looks to be in pretty good condition. There is a "Fahrrad Burggraf" in Holzhausen, Germany. Maybe a house brand?

@cristibear - you're not spelling it correctly, apparently. Your original post you spell it "Burgraff" but accd. to another poster who found it online it's "Burggraf"

I assumed it was "Burggraf" (viscount) and German, so I googled "fahrrad Burggraf" and this came up:

Fahrrad Burggraf, Holzhausen im Telefonbuch Waging mit Telefonnummer 086819...
