    The Münster is very nice from the outside as well as inside. Also, the environment, the Cathedral is located on the beautiful market square. I would recommend to visit the Minster when market is. Because many are in the marketplace and to the Cathedral around beautiful stalls with food etc.

    An imposing Gothic Cathedral of Baden-Wuttemberg, built between the 13th and 16th centuries. Beautiful stained glass high and dark and solemn atmosphere, colourful statues and bronzes. The Bell Tower is about 120 meters. A landmark in Freiburg, even for orientation.

  • 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
