“The Cathedral is a must”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Its an old cathedral (The last duke of Zähringen had started the building around 1200 in Romanesque style, the construction continued in 1230 in Gothic style. The minster was partly built on the foundations of an original church that had been there from the beginning of Freiburg in 1120 - Wikipedia). Its going through a process of renovation for several years now, but at least you can see the inside with all the beautiful windows.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

This cathedral is centrally placed in a square in Freiburg, and is a beautiful site located near the townhouse. It was having outside work down when we were there, so could not view it in all its wonder. Inside was relatively impressive, and we got to climb to the top of the tour.

“not stunning but worthy seeing”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

Nice place, great the stained glasses. but best of all is the square around, so full of life. It is a must over Xmas, at the Weihnachtsmarkt. Lovely.
There also regular concert at the catherdral.
Be aware that it is a fully function church and that is close for visits during the mass

“Average cathedral, nothing special”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

While I enjoyed the cathedral, it is an ordinary cathedral of that type. I really enjoyed the farmer's market that was around it the day we visited

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

What can you say about a 800+ year old cathedral? I loved it! The organ is impressive and the exterior has detailed decorations. You can spend hrs observing each of the carvings.
