“Intimidating! Timless”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

This cathedral takes you back to the gothic era...It's amazing how much work was put into such buildings, without the help of technology! Granted there is a lot of renovation going on, but how else can such a beauty be restored/preserved? I felt like Quasimodo in Hunchback of Notre Dame for a little while! I will recommend this tour to anyone visiting Freiburg! A lot of history in this cathedral!
One strong recommendation - no heels! Wear tennis shoes, especially if you intend on climbing the clock tower. Also, make sure you're aware of the time the bells ring, because you do not want to be in the stairway or too close to the bells when this happens! Trust me :)

“Great Cathedral but renovations spoilt it for the outside view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014

This cathedral is great on the inside and is quite big. The cathedral is beautiful on the outside but a lot of it was hidden due to renovations but is worth while a visit. The day was a bit cloudy and so no climbing was done but that would be a good thing to do on a fine day.

“an ausome monumemt”

The cathedral is located in the heart of Freiburg, and in the middle of its shopping center. it is a testament of ages and miraculously survived WWII with some scars.
