The Altes Gefangnis in Freising (the old prison) is a wonderful place to spend a pleasant late afternoon or evening in Freising! The location is perfect, right in the center of the old town area at the end of one of the most picturesque streets in Freising (the Fischergasse) and just below the cathedral. It is not a very large building, and although it was formerly a prison, now it is has been thoughtfully converted into a charming pub and exhibition space. When the weather is warm, you can sit in a lovely courtyard with long narrow beer garden tables and big pots of flowering oleander. In cooler weather it nice to sit indoors near one of the old ceramic-tiled stoves. Upstairs there are pleasant exhibition rooms. Shows are usually free and rotate each month with things like works by regional artists, school projects, clubs, the city archives, etc. There is also a small museum which outlines the history of building (be sure to check the opening times for the museum, they are shorter than the rest of the building). The pub serves a pleasant selection of good beers, wines and uncomplicated foods such as cheese, bread and olives along with non - alcoholic beverages. The whole thing is operated by a group interested in preserving local history, so hours of operation are limited to evenings and weekends. There is no parking onsite, but the city park house 'Am Wort' is just a short walk. If you arrive by bicycle there are ample places to lock up your bike. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.

great restaurant with wonderful wines and lots of vegetarian/ vegan options
Apr 2016
this little restaurant is always busy, and no wonder, with the great wine selection (and very reasonable prices), great service and tastey homemade like food (vegan/ vegetarian) ! When the weather is nice, you can sit in the courtyard, otherwise inside is an option, simply decorated but everything is done with tlc! Gotta love it!
