Freising – A city of variety, worth the experience!

Freising with its population of roughly 46,000 and roughly about 30 minutes outside the Bavarian capital Munich, is an old and traditional southern German town. It is home to several long-standing episcopal schools and two universities and besides being a scientific and economic location, it is a cathedral and episcopal city as well as a centre of culture in the region north-east of Munich, Germany.

Cultural town between Cathedral Hill and Munich airport

Freising is nearly 1500 years old and as such the oldest city between Bolzano in Italy and Regensburg in Germany. History and art history are reflected in the precious monuments mainly on Cathedral Hill and in the many testimonies of Freising’s museums and collections.

The “green” teaching and research in the Weihenstephan part of Freising with its two universities (Weihenstephan-Triesdorf University of Applied Sciences and the agriculatural and biotechnological campus of Munich University of Technogoly, TUM), the wide range of schools, many libraries and educational institutions today give testimony.
