Detail from Munster Cathedral with Story
At the centre of the old city is the Münsterplatz or Cathedral Square, Freiburg's largest square. A farmers' market is held here every day except Sundays. This is the site of Freiburg's Münster, a gothic minster cathedral constructed of red sandstone, built between 1200 and 1530 and noted for its towering spire.. This detail supports a funny story about the construction of the Cathedral. One of the craftsmen who made the figures shown in this detail. One of the people in town owed him money for work that he did,but had never paid him. So he got his revenge by putting his likeness in this stack of images. If you look carefully at the protruding image just below the roofline you will notice a drain pipe protruding from the figures rear end.
