Freiburg Minster is the cathedral of Freiburg, southwest Germany. It was built in three stages, the first beginning in the year 1120 under the dukes of Zähringen, the second beginning in 1210, and the third in 1230. Of the original building, only the foundations still exist. The church became the seat of the Catholic archbishop of Freiburg, and thus a cathedral, in 1827. It is famous for its mooning waterspout gargoyle.
