The dean's office Freiburg (also city ​​dean's office and overall parish of Freiburg ) has been the city dean's office since 1902 and since the reform of the dean's office on January 1, 2008 one of 26 dean's offices in the Roman Catholic diocese of Freiburg . Today's dean's office geographically covers the city of Freiburg as well as the Hexental in the southeast (with Merzhausen , Au , Wittnau and Horben ) as well as Gundelfingen in the north and the Tuniberg in the southeast ( Munzingen and Waltershofen ). The seat of the deanery is Freiburg.


Archbishop Thomas Nörber organized a reorganization of the archbishopric's deaneries in 1901 and 1902, according to which separate city deaneries were set up in each of the major cities (Freiburg, Karlsruhe and Mannheim). As a result, the city dean of Freiburg was established on January 23, 1902. In this way, the pastoral mission should remain feasible in the then rapidly growing urban living space. Since then, the city dean's office and the general parish have been two institutions within the dean's office in Freiburg that help shape and shape church life. In addition to overlapping content, there are also differences in the orientation in the pastoral and administrative priorities.

Since the reform of the deanery on January 1, 2008, the Freiburg deanery has been one of 26 deaneries in the Roman Catholic diocese of Freiburg. The deanery together with the deaneries Neustadt , Endingen-Waldkirch , Breisach-Neuenburg and Schwarzwald-Baar form the Breisgau / Schwarzwald / Baar region of the Archdiocese of Freiburg .

Since January 1, 2015, the deanery has consisted of eight (previously twelve) pastoral care units with 32 parishes.


The Dean's Office is divided into the following eight pastoral care units :
