The Cathedral Hill in Freising reminds of the very beginnings of Bavaria in the early middle ages. 1250 years ago missionary bishop Bonifatius laid the foundations of the diocese of Freising and the first ecclesiastical organisation. The cathedral hill with cathedral and romanic crypta, episcopal residence and diocesan museum invite to a journey through time of Christianity and religious art in Southern Bavaria.
Weihenstephan is another of Freising’s significant sites. The former wictine monastery complex now houses a historical brewery and a museum.
