Though not the biggest of museums, it holds enough pieces and historic information to be worth a visit. The building has been beautifully restored/refurbished over the last couple of years, and it's been wellworth it. Added bonus: it's air conditioned ;-)

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.
