Freising Travel Tip:
Weihenstephan Brewery at the Weihenstephan Abbey

Weihenstephan Brewery at the Weihenstephan Abbey
Weihenstephan Beer

The Weihenstephan Brewery can trace its roots at the abbey to the year 768, as a document from that year refers to a hop garden in the area paying a tithe to the monastery. A brewery was actually licensed by the City of Freising in 1040, and that is the founding date claimed by today's modern brewery. The brewery thus has a creditable claim to being the oldest working brewery in the world.

Guided tours are available Mondays: 10 am, Tuesdays: 10 am and 1:30pm, and Wednesdays: 10 am. The tour price of 9 € includes beer tasting a pretzel, and a gift shop voucher.

Hi, The most efficient (cheapest) would be the bus. A local bus, No. 635, drives directly from the airport to Freising every 20 minutes. The journey time is also just 20 min. A taxi is a few minutes faster but much more expensive. Best regards, Jörg Herrmann
