Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was just steps from our hotel. It is the town square center. I reviewed it highly because of the location. It is centered in town around many restaurants and all kinds of small German stores. On Saturday they have a wonderful Farmers Market set up here. It’s one of the best Farmers Markets I’ve ever seen. They have been doing this for many years including when I visited in 1971. Love the area. Unfortunately they are doing major renovations on a historic church and other buildings within eyesight. But on on the positive side it will make this area even more beautiful if we ever visit Germany again!

We had an 8-hour layover in Munich and didn't want to spend that long just sitting around the airport. Rather than go all the way into Munich, we headed to Freising instead. Using the 635 bus, it took 15 minutes or so to get to the Fresing from the airport. It was lightly raining and Sunday morning, so many places were closed, but the town was really pretty. There were some nice trails following canals through town and many beautiful old buildings, churches, and cobblestone streets. We headed over to Marienplatz, the main square in town and they were having a Hops Festival! People in traditional clothing were dancing to polka music up on the stage and a number of vendors set up around the square. So even with much closed in town, we had the chance to eat some German food, do a little shopping, and most importantly, drink good German beer! Freising makes a great spot to get away from the airport for a couple hours and the Marienplatz is a nice place walk around or sit and enjoy the view away from the airport.

It’s a column in a square. Worth a glance if you’re walking past. Not worth going out of your way to see.

You can see why it get very busy with families of locals and tourists. Marienplatz Is simply stunning to see. It is a must see/do for all.
It’s been in the city centre sine 1100 centuries, surrounded by multitude of historic buildings. I was lucky enough to be there for Christmas which is truly the best time of the year to see it.

The Mariensaule is a nice baroque column in the middle of the Marienplatz square in Freising. There's not much else to say about it!

This is a lovely area for photos and to relax. Great place to hang and walk around if you have a long layover at Munich airport. There are many restaurants as well as shopping close by.

I didn't expect to come to such a beautiful scenario as I strolled around town. I just found randomly a hotel on Booking to spend the night before my flight and voila, loved it!!

Freising is a typical Bavarian town with pretty town square and back streets with good shopping a nice River walk and. .. THE OLDEST BREWERY IN THE WORLD!
We chose to spend a day here after a weeks cruise on the Danube. . Much better than spending hours bored at Munich Airport. .. highly recommend it if you take the bus and train to/from Passau
