Hello there, I had the chance to visit Freiburg last February, and luckily it was a sunny and warm day. Munsterplatz is quite easy to find, just look for the cathedral tower above the low roofs of the historical center. It is always crowded and plenty of activities, street artists, tipical food, shops. I strongly recommend to visit the cathedral... More

A busy area of town with a market, the Munster and restaurants and shops. A nice place to relax, people watch in lovely surroundings Restaurants here are expensive compared to a few streets over so be warned you are paying a premium

Afternoon the market is cleaned away and the square becomes a nice and... More

The farmer's market is opened everyday (except sunday) until 2pm. Do go early for fresh produce. Whatever is in season (such as white asparagus) can be found aplenty. Potted plants can also be bought there. Before leaving the market, do try the Freiburger lange rote or currywurst.

The Munsterplatz is dominated by the Cathedral.All around the square there are shops and open air restaurants.The buildings are preserved so there is a feeling of stepping back to the 16th century.Well worth a visit.

The Munsterplatz is right in front of the Freiburg Cathedral, is a busy market every day but Sunday. It is fronted by many lovely outdoor eating places, including Oberkirch Wienstube. You can get a sausage sandwich to eat while walking around, and get flowers, fine woodwork, and it is fun to just walk around. There is a historic "corn hall",... More

Get there early, well at least before midday. We arrive in early April and there were plenty of market stalls to visit, flowers, vegetables, cheese and some great toys stalls. Most of the stallholders speak English, but give the German ago, you might end buying something completely different. We also bought lunch as there are plenty of hot food stands.... More

The market at munsterplatz is a must see, Spend at least an hour there, taste the various foods, take pictures of the market and the surrounding views, have a coffee and cake at the konditorei in the yellow building.

A market was on and it was busy but a wonderful atmosphere and plenty to see. Great food available and to sit down and watch the world go by was very nice. Helped that the sun was shining! Well worth a visit.
