I can't imagine anyone vacationing in Freiburg would ignore this cathedral. But in case you were thinking about doing so, think again. It has beautiful architecture and is simply a large part of the history of this city (one of the oldest in Germany).

The cathedral is beautiful both inside and outside. It has many statues in and around that are a sight. Additionally, the paintings at the main entrance are also beautiful. When you get inside you encounter this beautiful interior with statues of saints guiding you towards...More

The church is impressive and beautiful. Especially the colorful windows are very pretty to look at. People who are good on foot must have a look at the city from the tower. It is really wonderful!

This is a great place to walk in during walking through the city center. The entrance is free, they also sell souvenirs and candles.

This cathedral categorically has a leaking roof (despite what the lying locals say!) which is particularly disappointing (and dangerous!) as the floors are slippery (sigh)... The fragile yet elegant stain glass windows do not detract from the chronic moist issue. If you aren't a fan...More

Huge and beautiful cathedral undergoing some external repairs when we visited. Loved the stained glass. Located in the square surrounded by attractive buildings.

This an amazing church, with a dark somber appearance and a spire that soars high above the surrounding town. Entry is free and within, find a quiet serene space. If you go at the right time, you can hear the amazing pipe organ playing.

We visited here a few days ago. Scaffolding was all over the one side and entrance but due to the nature of the building material apparently there is constantly scaffold somewhere. Old timers say they have never seen it without. As we walked inside the...More

It is a beautiful cathedral even though there are some renovations going on. It is situated at the centre of the old city and you wont missed it with its tall towers. Around the cathedral are many carts selling food and souvenirs. We had a...More
