Munsterplatz represents the heart of Freiburg. The square's medieval-era surroundings include the Merchants Hall and Archbishop's Palace. The intricate fish fountain at its center is an exact replica of the 15th-century original. The Munster Cathedral on the square miraculously survived bombing in 1944. Grab a meal or snack at one of the nearby bars or cafes, or simply relax and people-watch. Don't miss a chance to wander the famous farmers market held here nearly every day.

früh morgens ist er in meinen Augen m schönsten. Die Händler richten liebevoll ihre Verkaufsstände her, es herrscht eine familiäre und ländliche Stimmung auf dem Platz. Man kennt sich, man redet mitei... more »early in the morning it is in my eyes m most beautiful. The dealers lovingly set up their stalls, there is a family and rural atmosphere on the square. You know each other, you talk to each other, you exchange ideas... a relaxed experience. From 10 a.m. on, the crowd and shoving of people between the narrow corridors of the market starts - a time I prefer to escape. The wind (hell valleys) is often ice cold on the square, so even in midsummer it is better to take a jacket with you. Every Saturday there is a nice, free organ concert for every interested person and a small market devotional, which is suitable to bring a little peace and thoughtfulness into the bustle. Climbing the renovated bell tower is always worthwhile. From there you have a magnificent view over the whole Münsterplatz, the city, the Kaiserstuhl, the Vosges or the Schlossberg. Nothing for people with reduced mobility or untrained people, not even for the severely overweight: the spiral staircase is very narrow and you always have "counter-traffic". As it was hundreds of years ago, the square is the vibrant heart of the city.
