  • 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.
