I decided to stop in Freiburg, which is located in the Rhein plain at the southern edge of the Black Forest. As we were walking to the Münsterplatz, as the Marktplatz is called in Freiburg, I saw the tall Our Beloved Lady Mary Cathedral in the midst of the the historic center.
This is the most important Gothic and historic church reaching back to medieval times. The church is named after Mary as its patron saint
Shortly after the towns founding in 1120, the residents of Freiburg built the parish church on the site of the present day cathedral. The church was replaced by a more sophisticated and modern building after 1200 a. D.
