Interesting square in the center of old town Freiburg, dominated by the cathedral. Site of market during the days, featuring various vegetable, cheese, meat vendors, several crafts stalls, and a half dozen or so sausage stands. At least in the winter months, everything closes up by early evening and the square is virtually deserted at nights.

The Münster is surrounded from beautiful architecture buildings. Even on a rainy day you are impressed. Very nice start for your walking tour through the old village.

The square is the center of everything! The shops and streets all feed into the square. Mon-Sat there is a morning market with local crafts, food, flowers, toys, and souvenirs. I like to sit down at one of the restaurants and grab some coffee or ice cream. Always charming and never a disappointment!

especially on saturday mornings from 5 am, when there is a farmers market. Medieval architecture and cobblestone, small alleys and a very lovely view.

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.
