Beautiful Cathedral!

This cathedral was built between 1200 and 1530 and is much like the gothic cathedrals in other areas. I am always surprised at the detail achieved by carving sandstone. The... read more

This cathedral was built between 1200 and 1530 and is much like the gothic cathedrals in other areas. I am always surprised at the detail achieved by carving sandstone. The gargoyles, spires and saints on the outside are impressive. The inside is not so detailed except when it comes to the beautiful stained glass windows- amazing! Part of the cathedral... More

Has a brilliant Minday to Saturday market with the most amazing selection of food, much of it local, plus flowers, Nik-naks, sausage stalls by the dozen and some great coffee shops and restaurants with lots of outside seating, although be aware that this is very touristy and the food and wine is geared towards that customer.

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.

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.
