Northeast of Munich is a suburb called Freising. I’ve mentioned it several times as the seat of power in Bavaria until about 1100 when the only bridge crossing the Isar was moved to Munich. In Freising, you will find a very special park at the city’s highest point, which looks back to the city of Munich from several hundred meters above the city. It is at the location of the Weinstephan brewery and the Munich University of Technology’s Life Sciences school. Despite the traffic from both well known institutions, there is a certain peacefulness you wont find in many other places – from the incredible view, the extensive gardens, and the exotic plants (like this pictured) that fill the park.
