    Old church in Freising

    by meteorologist1 Written Aug 9, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    See the church in Freising, which is one of the oldest in the country. Its location on a hill in Freising is also very unique. There's a library adjacent to the church which hosts some incredibly old books. Have a look for yourself!

    Old library, old books

    by meteorologist1 Updated Aug 9, 2003

    The library adjacent (and connected) to the church in Freising is very unique. The color of the books, in a white color, yet looking very old, as well as how the mountains of books are stacked, reminded me of the library scene in Disney's movie "Beauty and the Beast". Some of the books, I think, will fall apart if you try to open them since they are incredibly old. All the books are written in Latin, not German.

    Weihenstephan

    The oldest brewery in the world is sure to get a visit if we're in town!
    It's high above the town, buses go fairly close and then a short walk.
    It is now a pretty modern brewery set in the grounds of Munich University, the restaurant on site is lovely though with a great beergarden overlooking the city.
    A warm lunchtime visit for us so, outside it was and a couple of very good beers and a decent lunch to go with them.
    Good place to spend some time.

    Visit the "Freisinger Dom"

    by Freising Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is an absolute must if you visit Freising.

    "Dom" is the word for the most important church in a catholic diocese, which most of the time is where the bishop resides. In other words a cathedral. The Freisinger Diocese was founded in 739 AD and even then there was already a church up this hill, the locals today call "Domberg".

    Even if the marvelous baroque interior is not accessible at the moment (may 2006) because of restoration, the sites strong but quiet athmosphere still gives a very good impression of the importance of christianity in Bavaria.

    Bicycle tour along the river Isar

    by Freising Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Freising, along the Isar to Garching (Beergarden)
    easy tour, 44km, no incline

    Freising, at the train station: cross the tracks and a big parking lot and you will see the river dam. Start driving towards Munich. The path at first goes along on top of the dam in the sun, but soon you will be able to enter the woods (Auen) and get closer to the river. Follow the yellow signs, they point out destination and distance. One of it reads "Aumeister" which is a beergarden in munich. It´s not your destination, but the right direction, so follow it.

    Follow the river, enjoy the cool shadows of the woods or rest on the sunny river banks.

    Near Munich Airport: If you want to cut the tour short to only 20km look out for a wooden bridge (right before a big highway bridge). Cross the river there and turn back to Freising.

    If you go on:
    Near Hallbergmoos: another smaller road bridge crosses the river

    Near Garching: after about 20km (before you reach another road bridge) look out for some signs pointing to Garching (or maybe even "Muehlenpark" which is the name of the beergarden in Garching). You have to turn right, leave the meadows and cross some fields before reaching this place. Look for an old mill-wheel turning in a small creek.

    After enjoying fine bavarian beer and some rest, you might either:

    - turn back to Freising (cross the river at the nearest bridge, or not, if you like);

    If your accomodation is in Munich:
    - go further on upstream the river Isar until you reach Munich (Englischer Garten); it´s actually shorter than to return to Freising;

    - find the train station (Garching-Hochbrück); about 2,5km to the west, across the highway; take the U6 to munich; but be aware: you need an extra ticket to take your bike on the train and you are not allowed to take the bike on the train on work days between 6-9am and 4-6pm
