  • A really nice church i one of Germany's most beautiful cities. The church is impressing from the outside, but the interior is also beautiful. A must see in Freiburg.  more »
  • A four-organ cathedral is truly unbelievable. The organ player was so kind to show us what great acoustics do to a sound like this. We stayed there for almost an hour. We will be back.  more »
  • Great and impressive cathedral. The Bell tower is definitely a must-see and worth the long climb. Aim to be there 15 minutes before the bells ring so you can be get a good view point close to the bells.
  • Freiburg was magical. We loved the buzz and the food at the open Market. And my daughter laughed at me for taking pictures (intentional pictures) of the sidewalk. What can I say - they were beautiful mosaics. I'm so happy we marked this warm historical city as a stop along our travels.
