  • the reason for the visit

    Located in a former monastery/abbey of Weihenstephan, the Wehenstephan Brewery is the world's longest-established brewery. Located on the premises is a huge restaurant and a Getranke (shop that sells their beer). The restaurant can handle big crowds and caters to tourists as well as the locals. I'm assuming there are a bunch of young folks who also...

  • Hearty, generous sized meals

    Located near city center in the shadow of the "Domberg" (Cathedrals hill). Because of that steep hill it´s actually a little dim inside. They offer fine hearty Bavarian and International meals of good standard. Although not to cheap, the servings are quite big and worth their price.As a local I enjoy meals there regularly. "Zur Gred" is also a...

Freising Transportation

  • Freising: Arriving by car

    Arriving and driving through Freising might not be considered the most joyful experience. Streets are narrow, crowded (on work days) and often one-way. Free parking space is rare. Thats what you get when you place a town between two hills and two rivers. There is a small "short-time" parking lot near the train station. Maybe a good first stop for...

    Things for the most part in Freising are cheaper than things in Munich. The local ice cream shops have much cheaper ice cream than those in Munich. There are all kinds of stores in the city center: shoe and clothing stores, toy stores, and grocery stores.

    by Freising Written Jun 21, 2006

    There are a lot of small roads and paths to take and most of them are delightful. All you need is a good map of the area (Kreis Freising; 1:50.000) which you can get in every book store in town.

    Don´t expect anything too pitoresque. It´s mostly nice but common bavarian rural landscape you will be riding through. Dont forget to take something to drink with you - it can get quite hot on the open fields.

    South of Freising there is the "Moos" a flat landscape of fields and meadows with small lakes and creeks. Not much shadow there, but a good choice for the less sporty.

    If you dont have a map and dont want to get lost take a tour along the river Isar. Upstream or Downstream you´ll find nice paths along the river on both sides. The "Auen" (woods) also provide good shadow.

    North of Freising you find the valley of the river "Amper" and further on the hills of the "Hallertau" (where they grow the best hop of the world for the best beer in the world). Cycling in this area might be a little bit tougher, as there are quite some acclivities to master. On some of the bigger paved roads the country folk applies to a very fast and risky way of driving (their cars) - avoid them.

    I am trying to collect some tour descriptions in my Things to do section for Freising.

    Equipment: Many of the smaller roads are not paved, so you need a bike with thicker tires. Of course there are enough roads to also use your racing bike, but you will have to plan your trip carefully or you might be in for a very rough ride. Dont forget to pack something to drink and use sunscreen. It gets hot on the open fields in summer.

  • The library: very unique

    This is unlike any library you see everyday. The look of the library is just different from anything in the world today. The books are old, the shelves are old, but there's more to those things being old...their colors are very unique for books. Mostly white. A very memorable place for me.
