There is a lot of medieval and renaissance statuary in this museum, a good deal of it originating in the cathedral, as well as stained glass and paintings. The explanations are very helpful, even if you don’t read German. One floor holds a number of...More

Excellent transformation of the old monastary chapel into a modern museum. Lots of original stained glass windows and statues from the Cathedral - Take a day pass for 3 museums (substantial reduction)

Next to the Freiburg I would say this is the next must see attraction. Even if you are not religious, you would appreciate the beauty of the paintings, stained glass, sculptures, and architectural artefacts housed here. The added attraction is that the museum building was...More

We were fortunate to visit during an exhibition of 100 of Rembrandt's etchings. The explanations of each work in its context were superb. The main part of the Augustiner museum was very impressive, from the original Munster statues housed here to protect them, to medieval...More

We visited during an exhibition of Freiburg under the Nazi regime and it was well worth a visit. It was both informative and not at all didactic.

This is an amazing museum.The works are so well displayed and it blew us away.One of the best small musuems we have ever been to.A must-see, if, like us, you enjoy medieval art.

This is going to take your breath away (always provided you appreciate medieval religious art). If you like the Cathedral, you'll like this. It's not just the art itself, but its presentation. The design of the place is exceptionally well thought out. You'll never get...More

After you enter the main entrance hall of this art museum in the centre of Freiburg, you are blown away by the colonnade of statuary and gargoyles recovered from the Munster (Cathedral). The effect is magnified as you walk up several levels of stairs to...More
