Very cool cathedral in Freiburg that is rich in history. We visited quickly while attending the Christmas market outside. I would enjoy a return visit to learn more about the history of this church that is still standing after so many years.

A must visit place if you are in Freiburg. It's a nice slice of history, architecture and it's right in the market place. It is a pretty big cathedral and very quiet inside that gave us the opportunity to spend some time for a quiet prayer. The columns inside and the height of the ceiling is a reminder of all the great architecture done in the times before us.
The stained glass windows are a view to take in and enjoy the art work and story.
The market around the cathedral offers plenty to eat, drink and shop. We tried the hot cider and would definitely recommend it. The vegan/tofu option was not fitting my taste but it was ok.

Absolutely stunning cathedral in Freiburg. I absolutely love visiting places of worship as they bring such a feeling of calm and reverence. This cathedral welcomes all, to respect those worshipping. Beautiful stained glass windows and high ceilings! The Reliquary of Saint Lambertus (635-705), Bishop of Maastricht and patron saint of Freiburg gold statue is here for viewing, completed in 1514 by the goldsmith, and set up in 1779 on an older base from 1468.

One of the oldest and most beautiful churches in Germany.
Do visit the "Turm"/church towers during the opening hours.
There is an entrance to the church tower from the right side of the church. The entry fee is 5€.

Amazing place with great views from up stairs how ever we had to climb a lot of stairs that were a bit narrow and they were getting narrower as you ascended more. There are some Bella on the top that are very old and kind of interesting.

Great cathedral for art lovers, the last work of Hans Holbein the younger can be seen here in the Universittate chapel (2 eur entrance). Other works are great too, unfortunately i did not find the info about the painters… anyway it is worth to enjoy!

A spectacular cathedral, right in downtown and surrounded by some beautiful old buildings. The entrance is free, and the environment inside is darkish and quiet. The glass windows are beautiful, and the shafts of light coming in are amazing. The ceiling has lovely textures, so do look up. It is nice to take a moment to sit and take in the calm. It is also lovely to walk around on the outside and notice the stone carvings.

So many choices as you explore. You can go up, you can go down, either way you get to enjoy a beautiful piece of history well preserved. After all the exploring, the fountain out in the square in front of the main entrance is designed to fill your water up.

Freiburg Cathedral, since 1200s. Some interesting facts about this masterpiece. It’s actual foundation is based on a church started in 1120s, in line with that in 2020, Freiburg celebrated in 900 years Anniversary. Only Gothic church in Germany dating back to Middle Ages, which survived wars and still smiling.
Out of 16 bells, the oldest dating back to 1258, oldest Angelus bell in Germany. It took 300+ years to realize this dream. The church is surrounded with market on weekdays, called as Münster market which brings local produce for sale. This tradition has been here since Freiburg wrote its name in history. So, a visit to the market is a different vibe. Can you go the church tower. Of course. 300+ steps will take you to the top of church tower base, where you can enjoy panoramic view of Blackforest and the city. Best time is Autumn during sunset. Check closing time before the visit. The church tower Entrance ( Münsterturm) is outside the church on left side.
Wish you beautiful day.

I have visited quite a number of cathedrals in Southern Germany, and Freiburger Münster showcases the most beautiful set of stained glass windows. Absolutely breathtaking! The steeple height is surely imposing, standing high and mighty above the beautiful city of Freiburg im Breisgau.

The stained-glass windows in this church are very delicate. Several pieces could be completed by different workshops, glaziers, or artists. They differ in their styles of depicting figures and choices of color. The mixture of Gothic and Roman styles seems to be typical in this area and different from the churches in Bavaria. Some of the statues were painted with color and shows an adorable delight of awkwardness, which corresponds to the history that it was built around 13-14th century.

Freiburg Cathedral was hilarious! What an amazing architecture from the heart of medieval times and renaissance. Dear Cathedral, I will come back to see you in the daytime and will report then again here.
UPD. Must see in Freiburg together with Augustinermuseum! It is very beautiful ❤

Oh man, where do I start? I love pipe organs and this cathedral has a huge pipe organ divided into three parts. If you visit the place, they to find the three pieces, it's awesome. I'd love to see it being played but I didn't have the chance yet. Beautiful place.

At first I was not sure about climbing the steps to the top but I decided to give it a go and I was not disappointed. Looking at the structure of the building, the craftsmanship and the overall impressive height of the building made it a highlight of my trip.

This was a great experience. You can see most of it for free. There is a back section that cost 2€ for adults and I think 1€ for children. The back portion was nice during the colder temperature because they had large heated vents. The sights there are amazing.

It is a beautiful cathedral to visit. It is one of two churches I have visited in which I felt like I had travelled back in time into Mediaeval Europe. The other one was the Kölner Dom (Dom of Cologne). The interior is dark in the overall tone, but it makes the brilliant colours of the glass windows even more vibrant. This was a visit I would not want to have missed. Make sure to bring time when visiting, sit down for prayer and reflection and light a candle for someone you love.

Beautiful cathedral in Freiburg. A must visit place if you are in and around here. We visited this while returning back from Black Forest during Christmas. It was also well decorated.
