This town square, built next to and named after Freiburg's famous cathedral, is still a major center of the city's social activity.

Typical European market square. Beautiful buildings and a great market selling local produce. Try the cheesecake, sausages and schnapps.

Church is worth 30 minutes of your time, nothing else is. Fifty feet in any direction from the church is a strip mall look with graffiti. Use Staufen as your home base for the black forest.

The town square has wonderful crafts persons selling their wares. Lovely to have access to beautiful individual art - rather than mass produced souvenirs. Great ice cream shops also in the square. Just beautiful!

We toured this area on a Tuesday and enjoyed the fabulous market in the square surrounding the cathedral. There were many different types of products including stall with hand made wooden toys for kids.

We stayed at Zum Roten Baren, an old guest house on Oberlinden. It was very comfortable there, and very central.
