We walked through both at night, which was beautiful with the lights from the old buildings around the Muenster, and during the day. The last day we walked through there was a farmers market, which was nice to visit and purchase a few fresh things. It is worth a stop when visiting Freiburg.

Just one minute from the busy Bertoldsbrunnen and you are here. This is one of the most well preserved part of Freiburg, and the square is surrendered with many beautiful buildings. Most impressive in the Münster Cathedral, which can be seen from most of the town. During forenoon the square is filled with a market with regional things like food... More

Visit the square on market days, sample food at the different stalls, buy souvenirs like wood carvings and Cuckoo Clocks and drink a cold bear or a white wine "Schorle" in one of the many outdoor pubs. Very friendly.

This is such a nice square.Flowers ,vegetables and farm products, and some crafts too. I got beautiful wood pebbles from a stall that sells wood crafts. It is probably a good starting point to tour the city.The cathedral itself is very impressing.

Situated in the Old Town the lovely Munsterplatz. Centre piece is the towering cathedral currently under part renovation but well worth a visit because of its external and interior architecture. The outside of the cobbled platz is surrounded by beautiful old buildings. Outside the cathedral a very small Christmas Market with local artisan products but away from the main Christmas... More

Great farmers and Christmas markets around the Cathedral. Also toured the Cathedral. Everything was so fresh and the flowers were beautiful. We bought a lot of the food from the market and took it back and had lunch in our hotel room and it was absolutely delicious! We wanted to try so many things but you can only eat so... More

Great atmosphere, beautiful and peaceful with the best scenery and wonderfully friendly German hospitality. We enjoyed true Freiburger sausages and the tastiest fresh fruit. Cathedral is under renovation and we, unfortunately missed out on some beautiful scenes. Inside the Alter and lovely stained glass (with the sunshine on the outside) windows and great organ music is a must for every... More

We took a weekend break in Freiburg to see the Christmas markets which start in the 3rd week of November - and we got more than what we had anticipated. At first sight, Freiburg looked like any mid sized city, but once we started exploring the old town, beginning with Munsterplatz, we discovered a historical town full of old buildings... More
