About us

FWTM (Freiburg Wirtschaft Touristik und Messe GmbH & Co. KG) operates a total of three event venues on behalf of the city of Freiburg.
With its magnificent red façade, the Historisches Kaufhaus is the FWTM's most historic event venue and - located in the heart of Freiburg's old town - dominates the south side of the Münsterplatz.

A pearl of Freiburg's architecture and history, it is one of the most extraordinary conference venues in the region. Where all the threads of Freiburg's economic life already came together in the 14th century in the city's first municipal department stores', today the breath of history is paired with the ability to carefully metamorphose into an event venue that is second to none. Only here is it possible to go on a journey through time and to provide the appropriate setting for a stylish event.

With a capacity for up to 350 people, the Historisches Kaufhaus in Freiburg is certainly an ideal forum for your event - charm, grandeur and individuality included.

A short excursion into history

The front of the house facing Münsterplatz is decorated above the balcony with sculptures and coats of arms from 1530 and 1531, made by Hans Sixt von Staufen.

Crowned by a canopy, Emperor Maximilian I, his son King Philipp der Schöne and his sons, the Roman Emperor Karl V and Emperor Ferdinand I, are depicted between the windows of the front façade.
