This is a wonderful old-town market place in Bavaria. It is surrounded by 13th and 14th century buildings and a nice fountain in the center. While we were there one of the buildings was under renovation but that didn't detract from the charm of the...More

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

Explored town for a meal and found this lovely platz with Marian Statue and Farmers' Market. Had a great meal on the terrace of Cafe Marienplatz overlooking everything.

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
