Freiberg is a university town with narrow lanes, cobbled squares, a monster Munster and students hanging about on streets with bottles of wine and beer  (even in the cool days of October). In addition to Freiberg’s overall cuteness factor, the Gothic Munster rivals Strasbourg’s Cathedral.    Across from the Munster is the 16th century merchant hall, which shows a merchant, entering the hall fully clothed and the exit with no clothes to illustrate the paying of taxes.

Around Freiberg ,can be found St Peter, with its former Benedictine abbey , a rococo church, and Triberg, the home to  Germany’s highest waterfalls and cuckoo clocks.
