Freiburg is the fourth largest city in Baden-Württemberg (Germany) by population, after Stuttgart, Mannheim and Karlsruhe, with around 220,000 inhabitants and the southernmost city in Germany. The independent city in the administrative region of the same name is home to the sub-region or regional association (Regionalverband) Südlicher Oberrhein and district of Breisgau-Hochschwarzwald. The old town next to the cathedral and the famous Bächle (small water channels running through the city) are targets of some three million visitors annually. The city is considered a gateway to the Black Forest (Schwarzwald in German) and is known for its warm weather and sunny. Notable for its university and is considered as the capital of ecology in this country. Freiburg Cathedral was built in three stages, the first in 1120, the second in 1210, and the third in 1230. It is a Gothic building, although built in an old church, in Romanesque style, which still preserved the transept. In the year 1354 began to build the new sanctuary, but it was not until the year 1513 that was completed. The bell tower, a square, becomes octagonal shape of a pyramid that rises to 116 meters. The cathedral preserves the original windows of the Middle Ages. The New Town Hall was not built until 1896 - 1901 to be renovated Renaissance building, which served many years as an administrative building and faculty of the University founded in 1457. He was later transformed into Polyclinic and School of Anatomy. In the tower of the new central wing of City Hall carillon sounds daily at 12 noon. The Old Town Hall was built between 1557 and 1559 to join several old buildings. Formerly the facade was completely painted. Since 2007 the building houses the tourist information office. The building has a striking red and gold watch. Lienhart Müller built between 1520 and 1532 the warehouses of the Plaza de la Catedral (Münsterplatz). Beautiful coats and sculptures of Hans Sixt von Staufen adorn the main facade in honor of the House of Habsburg. The stores are the same color red, in the facade, the old town hall. Freiburg retains three of the doors that had on the wall. The Gate of the Swabian Alb, high defensive value thanks to its strategic location next to a crossroads, Martin's Gate, which is the oldest of the towers of the first walls, built in the early thirteenth century, and the Gate Breisach, built from 1677 in the baroque old city walls, during the French occupation. Its well-preserved old town and its cultural activities make it very visited by tourists. It is worth noting one of the largest museums of the city Augustinermuseum with a large collection of graphic art and crafts of the region. Freiburg is also visited by people interested in renewable energy and development policies due to the great success they have achieved in the city.
