I didn't expect to come to such a beautiful scenario as I strolled around town. I just found randomly a hotel on Booking to spend the night before my flight and voila, loved it!!

I liked this square a lot - little, cozy, just amazing. Nice surrounding buildings, a couple places to eat. Good, friendly atmosphere.

Like the dom area - not much to see in Freising except this attraction. Love to see the different colors and detailed architectural designs. The bears are fun. It's just a lot of fun if you simply walk around to look at the bear statutes

What a great little area. This was in walking distance from our hotel (Marriott). There is not a whole lot here, however, it has a very pretty fountain, several little shops and restaurants, which makes it a nice area to walk through.

This town area is really nice and you can feel the history. Very quiet even though that this is just on the outskirts of the big city

Not much to say, just a very nice place to sit on a sunny afternoon, and have a drink. Or a coffee in the morning. The little german town has maintained a good atmosphere, and is good for a relaxing stay.
