A "must" if you are in Freiburg. An outstanding example of medieval architecture that has withstood fire and bombing through its history. The stained glass windows are breathtaking and the whole place has a very serene feeling

From the outside the Freiburg Cathedral (Freiburger Münster) looks impressive and beautiful with all the small details. But walk inside - it's amazingly beautiful. All those really detailed glass paintings and the grandeur of the building. Wow!

And a great outdoor market if you're there when they have it. Lots of groups visit it so you can probably sneak into a tour if you like.

Great sense of the history of this part of Germany. If you visit take time to climb to the gallery, and, if possible, stay for an organ or choir recital.

Very nice cathedral both inside and out. Lots of interesting details on the outside which not sure that everyone appreciates - like the medieval measurements of key items, a sun & calendar chart or all of the figurines (especially the mooning figurine). Excellent stained glass...More

The cathedral has a harmonious design. Stained glass windows were interesting. Gargoyles are fun and the spire is an interesting combination of Gothic design and lightness from the airy openness.

A quiet place with real wax candles to light! Most times the back is open to visit the graces and further paintings.
