Freiburg Im Breisgau – Enjoy The Medieval City In All Its Glory
My friends told me that I should not miss the city of Freiburg Im Breisgau on my family trip to Germany. Like you, I too did not hear the name of the city at all. I researched and found that it had many attractions. So, I took a chance to go to Freiburg Im Breisgau on my Germany visit and I was happy I took that decision.
The sights and sounds that you should never miss at Freiburg Im Breisgau are:
- Freiburg Münster
This is the first landmark you should check out once you land in the city. It is an old cathedral that was completed in over 300 years. It is a 116-meter tower and an architectural marvel. The tower was once considered to be the highest in the world. If you are a fan of artistry, then the stone figures and the facades of the building is sure to attract you.
This is known as the Castle Mountain and offers a breathtaking view of the old city of Freiburg. Both locals and tourists love to get on top of the castle tower to get a 360-degree panoramic view of the Freiburg town. It is highly picturesque and I thoroughly enjoyed the time spent in this place with my family.
This is the location where the Old Town Hall and the New Town Hal of Freiburg are located. The old hall has a Renaissance style to it and is located on the north side. The New town hall is next to it and is a modern building. The new town hall is made by joining two Renaissance burgher houses that are joined together by a walkway.
- Augustiner Museum
This museum was earlier an Augustinian monastery. It is now converted to an attractive art gallery that hosts the arts of the middle ages to the Baroque. The museum has arts of all the leading German Renaissance art masters.
