  • Very detailed cathedral, I can watch it for hours and find more and more things. Surrounded by the small local market with flowers, fruits, sausages (highly recommend to try one, very tasty stuff!), wooden goods, etc. Don’t forget to see the cathedral inside. It worth it, trust me. Reminds me the famous Strasbourg cathedral, but a smaller version of it. One love ❤️
  • The Freiburg Munster was so magical and pure. Make sure to respect others and to maintain silence inside the Munster. Perfect place to be at peace and to enjoy the architecture as well. Can light up candles for 0.70cents and buy candles to take home for 3 euros.
  • Very Beautiful Cathedral in the town of Freiburg im Breisgau. This town is at the edge of the famous Black Forest area. There are lot of hotels to stay very close to the Freiburger Munster, in and around the square. When we stayed for a night, the square around the Munster was occupied by a wonderful Christmas market, where you could get excellent food (including vegan options), and nice artisanal items. This place is also close to the Swiss border from Basel.
  • This Gothic-styled church has a tower that survived the 1944 bomb raids. Beautiful on the inside and outside. Don't leave Freiburg without having visited it.
  • A historic and miraculously standing( after 20 mins.of non-stop bombing from the WWII) Cathedral from the City of Freiburg. The gothic old and new style are simply amazing.
