Freiburg Cathedral


Cultural monument in late Romanesque style

Freiburg Cathedral certainly shapes the cityscape like no other sight of the city. The well-known cultural monument was built from the year 1200 until the middle of the 16th century. The massive structure was thus one of the few Gothic churches that could still be completed in the Middle Ages. Over the centuries, several builders were responsible, each bringing different architectural styles. In addition to the Gothic style, the late Romanesque style is particularly recognizable. The cathedrals of Basel and Strasbourg served as models. After the end of the official construction phase in the 16th century, further elements were added to the church. To this day, restoration work is also carried out on a regular basis.
