Mount Weihenstephan is Close
A long time ago, you would have entered the Weihenstephan Convent on Mount Weihenstephan. Today, the former convent houses the Bavarian State Brewery Weihenstephan, the Bräustüberl (ale-house) Weihenstephan, and others. The Old Academy is now the domicile of the WZW administration (Weihenstephan Research Centre). While you are on top of the mountain, enjoy the view and the courtyard with the pavilion. Then you may want to leisurely saunter past the Lindenkeller (linden cellar) down to the old town centre of Freising.
The Weihenstephan campus extends from the top of the mountain down to Vöttinger street. There you find additional auditoriums, institutes, and also the famous experimental shrub garden. Located just a short distance away are the Bavarian State Agency for Woodland and Forestry and the Bavarian State Agency for Agriculture.
