  • Great cathedral, very strong facade that makes you understand you're going to see something that resisted centuries to get to you. That dark Gothic elements inside reinforce the idea and you just feel the vibes of a very old building filled with history and people prayers. Amazing buildings in the Munsterplatz too and I remember this place for a really peculiar biologic market going on that day. I ate some organic food from a caravan and that made my day. Art, history, design, people and good food... that's just perfect.
  • Freiburg Münster (German: Freiburger Münster or Münster Unserer Lieben Frau) is the cathedral of Freiburg im Breisgau, southwest Germany. The last duke of Zähringen had started the building around 1200 in romanesque style. The construction continued in 1230 in Gothic style. The münster was partly built on the foundations of an original church that had been there from the beginning of Freiburg, in 1120.
  • 'Die Münster' is Freiburg's anchor as both a geographical landmark in the 'old city' section of town and to the 13th century when it was built. As an active church. services and masses are performed regularly. The architecture, both inside and outside is a marvel to behold. Look closely at some of the water spouts, and you will behold the earthy humor of some of the builders.
  • What should I say? It's a very big and very Gothic church with three organs, a huge tower (that would require at least one separate review), colourful windows and amazing portals. You could literarily fill books describing the Munster.
  • A must see for history, Medieval Europe and architecture enthusiasts. Das Munster is majestic and beautiful. Also Munsterplatz is a nice area to eat and shop.
