Spectacular building right next to the hotel where we were staying. Disappointed not to be able to go in and have a look around.

An old and imposing building, very nicely restored. It attracts attention with its red-brick colored facade decorated with statues. You cannot fail to notice it, because it is located right next to the cathedral.

Beautifully embellished and dating from the early 1500s, it’s testament to the increased trade for the city in those years.

Ornately turreted and with grand arches and columns in hues of deep red, it is a premier attraction.

Historisches Kaufhaus, from 1532 or Historical Merchant House located on Munsterplatz, on plaza where the magnificent Munster Cathedral is (from its side). Now, salute the Habsburgs, who are represented by the statues and the coat of arms on the Historical Merchant House. This was the trading and customs center in the 16th century, and briefly housed the state parliament after the war. Its deep red color can be found on several other buildings in town. During the Middle Ages around here, a red paint job on a building indicated it was a place where you'd be required to pay a tax or fee. Voilà!!!

When you are standing with your back turned towards the Cathedral you will see the “Historical Merchants' Hall”, the historic department store is one of the outstanding buildings in Freiburg im Breisgau, this on the south side of “Münsterplatz”, which it dominates with its red facade. The first municipal department store was a building for the municipal market administration for goods handling and customs clearance in Freiburg and was built in the “Schusterstrasse” and this in the 14th century, they mentioned about it in the year 1378. Than in the year 1520 the current building towards Münsterplatz was turned north of the old department store with a view of the Freiburg Minster built. The completion of the "new department store" is dated on the year 1532. The department store was later redesigned several times. In the year 1550 a balcony was added, after the sieges of the city in the year 1714 and the 1744 war damage had to be remedied, in the year 1814 the facade was repainted by Simon Göser.

You will not miss this if you are at munster platz. This is just right opposite the side of the cathedral. Definitely check out the building structure and take some photos. We saw some book sales there but that's about it.

The inside of this building is not particularly remarkable. But the outside is one of the great views of Freiburg and should not be missed. In the evenings there might be a chamber concert in the great hall. Go if you can.

Located on the Cathedral square, this former trading house is all in red color with plenty of decoration. Also the inside yard is all in red.

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.
