  • One of the masterpieces that the beautiful city has to offer. It is an example of German Gothic architecture, is considered one of the most beautiful churches in the world. The stained glass Windows are sumptuous.

  • 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.
