Freiburg Cathedral

Recommended
The primitive Romanesque building begun around 1200 underwent numerous changes up until the 16C. From the top of the tower there is a splendid view over Freiburg and the surrounding countryside. The porch and west door are decorated with numerous statues (late 13C) depicting Satan and various Biblical characters. Inside, the nave also contains many fine statues. There is an altarpiece (16C) by HB Grien in the light and airy chancel.
