A striking Gothic church standing elegantly at Munsterplatz. We were awed by the height of the tower. Climbing up the tower , then standing on the viewing platform to get a wonderful view of Freiburg. The most distinctive scene was the black forest which should more aptly now be named white forest. The interior of the church is also awe... More

A beautiful building which dominates the Market Square - the colour of the stone is quite unusual but lovely. Lots to see inside so well worth taking the time to have a good look around.

Amazing view from the top of the tower. A most see when in Freiburg. The Saturday morning and noon market around the church creates a very nice atmosphere in the city centre.

Fabulous example of a cathedral. Wonderful carvings and stonework inside and out. Very elaborate and ornate. Huge building. Impressive. Shame the tower was closed for renovations.

Quite beautiful and impressive, the pipe organ was undergoing restoration during my visit and the exterior was being cleaned and repaired, but still a beauty whether sunny or cloudy.

This is truly a place of sanctuary. We decided to not climb the bell tower so just spent our time inside of the Cathedral. The stained glass is so beautiful and many of it is original to the cathedral. I wish I would have taken a tour so that I could have understood the art even better!

This church is beyond amazing. So much detail, be sure and read the history Rick Steves writes, it's very interesting. The tower was closed when we were there due to construction which is always going on.

I had always wanted to see this wonderful historic cathedral, with its amazing architectural Gothic wonder. Despite some scaffolding outside, I was more than impressed. The main entrance-way was just amazing! The inside was also wonderful, very tranquil and well-maintained overall. Too bad I could go beyond the altar area to explore further. Wonderful stained-glass windows. The staff I met... More

We only saw it from the outside but it is a very large and impressive building. So big it's not easy to capture on camera. Great attention to details on the exterior.
