City of Freising

Freising combines old traditions and the Mediterranean way of life.
As the oldest town on the Isar, Freising is considered the heart of Old Bavaria. Impressive baroque and playful rococo buildings as well as austere Gothic town houses bear witness to the prosperity of days gone by and the high quality of life in this traditional yet young university town in the north of Munich. Dreamy alleyways and hidden corners invite you to take a stroll, while the cafés in the rose-decorated squares combine Bavarian traditions with southern joie de vivre.

The city's landmark and center of attraction is the Domberg with its Mariendom, which towers high above the old town. The interior was given a magnificent baroque interior by the famous Asam brothers. The Romanesque crypt with the mysterious bestiary column in the cathedral and the prince-bishop's residence are other popular attractions for visitors from all over the world. In the shadow of the cathedral hill, the tower of the parish church of St. George watches over the hustle and bustle of the city center. Just a few minutes' walk away is the former Neustift monastery, which is around 1000 years old. The Weihenstephaner Berg combines tradition and modernity like hardly any other spot in the city. This is where the campus is located, the scientific center of the university city, which is adorned with sculptures by modern sculptors. Just a short distance away is the oldest brewery in the world and the university's flourishing show gardens.
