  • It's amazing how this Cathedral is different depending on whether you are outside or inside. Despite its relatively small size, color dark stone, mixed in a Gothic style, at once austere and amazing wealth, give an impression of immensity inside the building. Don't hesitate to attend a mass: the music is of high quality. The songs are startling beauty. The organs are often accompanied by high level soloists. Also very beautiful stained glass.

  • Impressive Gothic Cathedral to the beautiful stained glass windows. A significant rise in the vault. Currently in the works for exteriors.

  • This is a cathedral to the central square. Vibrant are the stuff sold in the square. Also climb to the tower overlooking the whole town.

  • Very good atmosphere. Mornings there is market of food, vegetables, fruits etc. Stefan Käsekuchen is the best cheese cake I have ever eaten. You can find this shop in the market.
  • A Gothic Catholic Church, it has some events (e.g. concerts) at some special time of the year. On some days, there are people selling veggies, flower, food, wood craft etc in front of Münster. Also there are some bars around to enjoy sunny day
  • Located in the heart of Freiburg im Breisgau, the Münsterplatz has a view of both the towering cathedral, and sprawling hills of the Black Forest (Schwarzwald). In the mornings and early afternoons the Platz is filled with a dazzling array of goods sold by local vendors (a real open-air market), and in the evenings there is usually music played and the pigeons and people and smells make for a surreal experience.
  • Beautiful cathedral with a high tower. Placed in a privileged historical area surrounded by great shops and restaurants. A must see
  • Great view and a nice museum in the tower. Nice for everyone who likes to see everything from above
