This old city gate looks good for photograph and it is located in the centre of town. Walk down along the streets with many shops lining both sides.

Historical Building in the middle of town, a quick look while shopping is a good picture opportunity.

The tour guide told us that the Martinstor was made higher by the mayor at one point because, well, size matters. Beautiful old tower. Even the McDonalds alongside has adapted its signage to be more fitting with the old city tower (one of two remaining...More

Very imposing gate and good looking too. Apart from taking its picture and marking the route of the old walls little else to do. Good coffee shops around here though.

This is one of the remaining city walls of Freiburg. Also known as the swabian gate it allowed access to the city. The city walls are long gone but this watch tower still remains.

Martinstor is one of the towers you can see in Freiburg. It has been renovated very nicely, just like all the others. If you are a friend of nice architecture, you will like Freiburg.
