46,000 people live in the major Bavarian district town of Freising, which is home to several universities and institutions. The city is located along the Isar river about 30 kilometres (18.6 miles) north of Munich.

Before the secularisation, Freising used to be an important bishop's seat. It is the oldest city between the German cities of Regensburg and Bozen. Visitors love to take a stroll through the well-preserved historic old town centre with its stately town houses.

Aside from its fame as centre of excellence for the brewery sciences, Weihenstephan also basks in its reputation of being the 'Green Centre of Bavaria'. Freising owes this title to extensive research in the 'green' biological and engineering sciences in its many internationally renowned institutions.

Old and new exist in perfect harmony in Freising giving the city its own unique flavour.

Experience the many remarkable facets of Freising with all its old treasures and marvel at its strength as domicile of choice for future-oriented enterprises.
