By going /walking to the Munster Cathedral, you will logically pass the Historisches Kaufhaus, a building once owned by a group of merchants in the 17th century. Outside is rather good preserved, but nothing is going on/to see at the inside.

This red building with its statues of previous rulers and guild shields stands out on the square. Unfortunately you can only see it from the outside.

This is one of the historic buidlings in Freiburg (I think it was restored following damage in the Second World War). I was there for a function, and there was an excellent dinner. However, its the surroundings that are important and certainly worth a visit.

Great for a photo but not otherwise accessible. Second hand books are sold under the protection of the veranda when the market is on.
