“Great Views”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

For 2 euros it's well worth climbing the tower but be warned, the steps do get very steep - not for those with a fear of heights.

“Beautiful Stained Glasses”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

The first thing you notice outside of this cathedral is its impressive tower. It is the only Gothic church tower in Germany. It amazingly survived the bombing raids of November 1944. The first thing you notice inside is impressively beaufiful stained glasses. They were provided by the guilds marked by thier trade symbols. Take your time to look at each of them. Architechture is very impressive inside and out. Another interesting to note is that this chruch building is owned by the people of Freiburg (association) not by the church. Good for them!

“Gorgeous cathedral in a beautiful town”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

This cathedral is absolutely beautiful and is situated in a lovely town. Luckily enough when I visited there were three young women singing in the cathedral entrance and it added to the character and ambience of the building. The nativity scene was well worth a visit.

When I visited there was a market right outside the church and it really added to the atmosphere.

Lovely - would highly recommend.

“so impressive!”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

Take your time to walk around the Münster first, look at the thousands of details, the very beautiful tower, the main entrance...
The inside is just breathtaking: architecture, windows, athmosphere!
