Old photos of Freiburg

Click this link to read (in German) an article about old photos in Freiburg currently on display at the Wentzingerhaus:  Schatztruhe Stadtfotografie: Freiburg um 1900 (veröffentlicht am 14. April 2009 17:36 Uhr auf badische-zeitung.de)

Leading you to the website of a community newspaper in German wasn’t meant to be a joke.  Ok, here’s the link to the online photo gallery:   Fotos im Wentzingerhaus: Freiburg um 1900 (Fotogalerie veröffentlicht am 14. April 2009 auf badische-zeitung.de )

Look for the photo of the old university that resembles this:

I stared in awe as I saw the old photo of the ‘bare’ Stadttheater (city theater house).  Now, cafes, a cinema, and some bars line along the right part of the building.  Those lush trees are gone, replaced by cobble stones and the tram lines connecting the main train station and city center (Bertoldsbrunnen).   I definitely have to see this collection.  The gallery is at Muensterplatz 30.  Regular entrance fee costs 2 Euros, and a Euro for the discounted price if you’re a student and or a senior citizen.
