Freiburg Germany

Day six of my German Adventure was a day off, and we went to Freiburg in southwest Germany near Switzerland and France.

The weather was as nice as you can expect in February, and the streets of the old city were filled with people milling around.

See my pictures on Picassa.

The main attraction in Freiburg is the Munster, or the large church in the center of the old city. It is a nice old church and large parts are from 1270. Large parts of the city were bombed out in the war, but were rebuilt in the original style.

We also climbed the hill overlooking the city where there was a walled castle. No castle left but there is a good view of the town.
