“Impressive”
Reviewed 30 August 2014

Wander through the streets of the old town of Freiburg, whuch are charming and lined with little streams(Bachle) to cathedral square.
This is a great building to explore.
If you are lucky enough to go there when there is a market on in the square this is also well worth exploring.
Super place, with great atmosphere.

“Beautiful Architecture”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

This is a must see attraction if you are ever in Freiburg. Several parts of the building was under restoration. It was also a religious holiday when we were there. The Cathedral was full of people. The architecture, detail, and stained glass is incredible. It is amazing how this was constructed so long ago with the limited tools and equipment.

“Under renovation”
Reviewed 25 August 2014 via mobile

Probably reviews here blew up my expectations too high. The Cathedral's exterior is much more beautiful than its interior, even with the scaffolding. The square is gorgeous, as traveling through the old city.

“Can't get enough of this amazing Gothic Cathedral”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

This gothic cathedral is very well maintained, i heard it survived the bombing of 2nd World war, i really gazing at those gargoyles in the exterior, the interiors are also very well maintained, although i believe some of the statuses are not the original ones, which was a bit disappointing to me.

come in the morning where the Morning Market is around for a lively bustling morning, where the air will be filled with those aromatic "Wurst" sausages of all kinds.

went to the top of the cathedral for a small fee, on a lovely day, the views are breathtaking, the stairs are a bit cramped, so if a person is going up at the same time as a person goes down, they will have some difficulties.
