Munsterplatz, Freiburg im Breisgau

Munsterplatz represents the heart of Freiburg. The square's medieval-era surroundings include the Merchants Hall and Archbishop's Palace. The intricate fish fountain at its center is an exact replica of the 15th-century original. The Munster Cathedral on the square miraculously survived bombing in 1944. Grab a meal or snack at one of the nearby bars or cafes, or simply relax and people-watch. Don't miss a chance to wander the famous farmers market held here nearly every day.

    A very beautiful place surrounded by old houses with great facades and the Cathedral as a centre. In various cafes and restaurants, you can sit outside and forget your everyday cares. The market, which takes place around the Minster is also interesting. This place is a must for visitors to Freiburg. One shouldn't however take time and etc. work on the impressions of Münster, City Hall, historic department store.
