Having a height of 116 metres, the Minster is characteristic for Freiburg’s view of the city and is at the same time one of the most popular places of interest.
The Minster Square is an area surrounding the Freiburg Minster. Small cafes and shops are located on this square as well as the city library, the historic department store, the Wentzingerhaus and the Korn House.
The Market Hall of Freiburg hosts more than 20 market stalls providing a rich offer of international and regional dishes and beverage. You can taste Italian and Chinese food but also traditional dishes from Baden.

You can enjoy a perfect view of the historic city from above not only from the Freiburg Minster but also from the top of the Castle Hill. The hilly mountain offers a unique view of the city up to the Vosges mountains.

Another eyecatcher on the Minster Square is the historic department store which ranks among the most considerable places of interest characterized by its red facade and exceptional structure.
