I am looking for a open source or freeware tool for visualizing the structure of XML documents and / or schemas, similar to the schema visualization found in Altova XMLSpy. Preferably the tool should run on Windows.

I would defiitely be prepared to pay a little bit
(especially since you want decent schema support)
go for Oxygen (www.oxygenxml.com)
It is a lot cheaper than XMLSpy and a factor better

Thanks! It looks good, but does it have XML visualization? I could only find a tree view, but I was expecting something along the lines of the display in the screenshot on this page:  http://www.altova.com/products/xmlspy/xml_editor.html.

What you show is the schema editor
That is quite similar for Oxygen

For XML, Oxygen has a grid view, a tree view and a WYSIWYG view (through CSS)

Yes, you are right. And what I am looking for is the kind of visualization that Altova offers for schemas, only for XML documents. Or is that logically impossible?

does not sound impossible, but I don't think I ever came across a tool that did that. Does Spy do that?
