Historisches Kaufhaus

With its magnificent red façade, the Historisches Kaufhaus, located in the centre of Freiburg’s Old Town, dominates the south side of the Münsterplatz. As a pearl of architecture and of the history of Freiburg, the Historisches Kaufhaus represents one of the most unusual conference sites in the region. An incomparable event location, as early as the 14th century, Freiburg’s commercial activities were focused here.
