Freiburg: Enjoy The Sunniest Spot Of Germany

Freiburg is a city that you will find at the edge of Black Forest. Believe it or not, it is the most livable city in Germany. It is most sustainable cities to be found on the planet. I found so many things to do and see in this city. You are never going to run out of options. Some of the best things you can do when you are in Freiburg are as follows.

Freiburg Minster

This used to be the Romanesque church of the thirteenth century and it is going to take more three hundred years to be complete. Irrespective of the destruction caused in 1944 to places around Münsterplatz, the minister suffered only minor damages. The artistry of this place simply amazed me. The archivolts and tympanum on a portal have over 400 stone carved figures towards the end of the 1200s.

Münsterplatz

There is a pedestrian square of cobblestone around the minster. It is filled with historic monuments. I visited on a Tuesday afternoon and found that there is a market that trades. However, the market trades every day except on a Sunday. This square had been flattened out in 1944 by the bombs. In the market, you will find regional produce, exotic spices, and handicraft. I took some souvenirs for my relatives and loved ones back at home. This is a great place to shop.

Historical Merchants’ Hall

Just beside Münsterplatz, you will find a Renaissance structure that has been made into a market storehouse. The building had been constructed in the 1530s. I marveled at the beauty of the structure. There are three statues which show the 3 Holy Roman Emperors.

Freiburg Bächle

Your trip will be incomplete if you do not visit the little waterways in Old Town. It is called the Bächle and is fed by Dreisam River. You can take a walk around this place and have the delectable food served by the cafes there.
