Two things recommend Freising, both beer related:
One, a beer garden called Plantage which is in the forest behind Freising. It is just really lovely with great food and plenty of opportunity to get lost on the way back to the train, when one has sampled too much of the beer.
Two, the oldest continually operating brewery in the world, Weihenstephan. Apparently there was once a quarrel between the Brewer (a monk) and the Bishop (there is a cathedral here too) about the bishop taxing the beer. The beer is still there and these days is part of the University of Munich in Weihenstephan(Freising) where one can study to be a master brewer. About as traditional an atmosphere as it gets but much more laid back than the Hofbrauhaus in Munich.
Feising is the last station on the S1 north of Munich.
Meander through this peaceful public park with its huge green spaces and shady trees to a fabulous beer garden where you can choose food and beverages from different booths: sausages, fish and chips and beers or if in recovery mode, tea and huge sugary doughnuts.
