Worth a visit when in town, beautiful building, free entry although there is a small charge for going up in the tower.

My wife and I drove from Baden Baden, well its much better place here and bigger in size. Also, old buildings are better preserved here. A half day would do it.

Always enjoy walking around Munsterplatz, something new always catches the eye. Either sitting watching the world go by at one of the outside restaurants, or grazing the amazing street food when the market is on. Not to be missed when visiting the city.

Even if I live in Freiburg I'm still not tired to walk around the münster. I quite like the market and I enjoy the fact that it's run by locals. They are kind and the stuff they sell interesting.

One of this nice places that you can find in Germany. I was last 26th October and at the religious time between 11 and 12 hour. His clocks are very impressive. Also has see many people and a curious procession of the Guardians of Christ from Jerusalem with his typical clothes (Man and woman). To relax you have many opportunities... More

One of the best parts of this town. The square is dominated by the impressive minster and other fine architecture. The flowers especially in the market are lovely to see. There are also lots of good shops nearby. Well worth a visit.

Tip - the items sold on the left side (looking at the front entrance to the Münster) are from local farmers. The items on the right are trade merchants. Someone is constantly checking scales for proper weight. This is a nice morning ritual with the exception of Sunday morning when just about 90%+ of Freiburg is shut down all day.

This is a terrific spot to walk around the market. The smell of fresh produce is fantastic. There's a few places to sit out and have a drink and a bite to eat and watch the world go by. None of the establishments appealed to us for food but to have a drink is very nice

First of all, I want to outline that the town is nice, there are beautiful places to see. However, the whole experience yielded in a huge deception. We went to visit a friend who lives in Freiburg. Arrived at the city, we parked the car and paid a royal 9 EUR for the parking space, as 5 hours or more... More

Munsterplatz is nothing special, nor is the Cathedral. Still though - Freiburg can charm everyone. People are super friendly, streets are full of citizens and students wandering around, sitting in cafes and bars. In the mornings the place features food market with local products, flowers and crafts. Nearby parkings cost around 2CHF per hour.
