This past May (2015) my wife and I traveled from Indiana, to RhinelandPfalz to visit with her family. While there we drove to Freiburg in Breisgau to see the Munster Cathedral. We stayed overnight in a small hotel on the outskirts of the city and traveled to the Munster Cathedral via local transport which is always on time and very... More

While I was in Freiburg, whenever I came on the Munsterplatz it never failed to put me in a good mood, whether it was peaceful and quiet on a wet Sunday or bustling and roasting hot on a hot summer's day. It seemed the only people being deterred in the latter circumstances were the chocolate sellers in Markt am Muenster... More

This is a place that takes you back in time. Get the feeling of the Middle Ages right here. Spend some time to just be and enjoy!

The cathedral is good, so is the view from the top. On Saturday there was a farmer's market kind of set-up and lots of local (edible & non-edible)things on sale. There is a great sausage stand(Meier's). It's "Lange Rote" is recommended.

On this Day, a nice market with plenty of local products. Not cheap, but apparently an excellent quality. Try the pesto made with local herbs (the vendor can be easily recognized) and go for a tour in this charming old city

I was pleasantly surprised as I walked through the streets of Freiburg, searching for the cathedral that stuck out from above all the other buildings. The road opened up into this Munsterplatz, and it was truly beautiful. There are a number of architecturally appealling buildings, and a beautifully ornate fountain. The towns people buzzed around, conducting their business, but were... More

BEAUTIFUL open air market in the square by the cathedral. Be sure to visit and maybe stay for a concert! Relax have a beer or a glass of wine or juice. This is the Europe you should see!

In front of church , you can find everyday the market. There are a lot of wurstel or hot dog seller, but you can find also wooden works , fruits , cheeses, pasta... Also the architecture of the place is very nice and you can spend some time to look around
