Evening in Freising, Bavaria, Germany is a perfect time to wander around the quaint cobbled streets of this old city and admire the architecture of the Rathaus in the Marienplatz.

Whether it is daylight or dusk, morning or evening, the city of Freising in Bavaria, Germany is an interesting place to explore, especially along the Untere Hauptstrasse where the architecture of the Rathaus (the Town Hall) and the bell tower of St.George's Church can be admired from the Marienplatz.

Even though Munich, 35 kilometres south of Freising, has grown to be a larger city, the old world charm and architecture of Freising makes it an enjoyable vacation spot.
