Freiburg’s Open-Air Market


Every day (except Sunday), Freiburg has a fabulous open-air market in the Münsterplatz, or the plaza around the Freiburger Münster, our big cathedral.


I looove visiting the market! They always have fresh fruits and vegetables….


And lots of fresh flowers….

But my favorite part is the myriad of wurst stands! Germany is home to so many different kinds of sausage, and the open-air markets are great places to try some. This photo shows one that the owner told me was a Freiburg specialty:

No two days are ever exactly the same at the market! I love the variety, the freshness, and the authentic German experience!
