  • Listen to mass (aunqe is in German), accompanied by a chorus of 120 people and a wonderful organ, is a unique opportunity, that can occur in a few places, an indelible and unique Freiburg, highly recommended memory for who are believers.

  • We very much wanted to climb the tower but was closed by works so it will be for the next trip. Inside are the stained glass windows, the Altar, the Crucifix of the presbytery and the great organ

  • Is simply a "must visit" If you are in the area. And the short prayer was very nice at 12:00 noon.

  • Magnificent Gothic Cathedral, very impressive in size and architectural style! It can be admired best from one of the many open-air terraces and restaurants from Münsterplatz.
  • Beautiful cathedral. You can walk up the steps and have a beautiful view of Freiburg. And if you get a chance to hear one of the (four) organs you absolutely should in this gorgeous acoustic and old building!
  • The Münster is under construction at the moment. It's still a impressive building and is the central place in Freiburg. On a Saturday morning a market takes place on the square around the church.
  • Amazing to me to see how they have so much open space created with stone, and that it is still standing. Several nice cafes in the same plaza.
  • This is a magnificant gothic church. It looks huge on the outside. The inside is dark and had facinating statues and stained glass windows.
