“Pretty, and pretty old.”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

A lot of construction going on around here. It's more exciting when the farmers' market is going on. It's OK to go inside even when the sign to not go inside is up. There's a mass going on, so be quiet.

“Absolutely fantastic”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

This is one of those places where you go "meh, I'm bored, could just as well visit a church" and when you walk in you go "woooooooooah" and you spend the next few hours there. Freiburg Cathedral is magnificent and beautiful. Even if you don't want to walk around you can just sit in a pew and take it all in. And if you're lucky the organist will be practising and you'll realise there are organ pipes everywhere. It is a truly magical experience.

“Intimidating! Timless”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

This cathedral takes you back to the gothic era...It's amazing how much work was put into such buildings, without the help of technology! Granted there is a lot of renovation going on, but how else can such a beauty be restored/preserved? I felt like Quasimodo in Hunchback of Notre Dame for a little while! I will recommend this tour to anyone visiting Freiburg! A lot of history in this cathedral!
One strong recommendation - no heels! Wear tennis shoes, especially if you intend on climbing the clock tower. Also, make sure you're aware of the time the bells ring, because you do not want to be in the stairway or too close to the bells when this happens! Trust me :)
