Visited Freiburg in late November and despite the gloomy weather, the farmers markets were flourishing with people surrounding the cathedral.

I was fortunate enough to do this with a wonderful tour guide who made the place come to life with lots of interesting facts and stories. I later walked to top and was there to hear and see the bells, it was a really lovely experience that I would recommend doing if you are in Freiburg.

Worth a visit, although constructional maintenance was in progress, not allowing us to see it fully.

If you're in Freiburg, then you have to visit the Freiburger Münster. The best thing is definitely the view at the top. But be prepared to go up lots of stairs and squeeze through tight stairways then others go downstairs. But when you reach the top you'll see it's worth it.

Nice place to see ancient architecture. Very calm and very tall. One of the tallest church I have seen.
