The Weihenstephan Brewery offers tours and has a beer garden, restaurant, and pub. All of these are nice experiences for trying out some excellent beers. I made this part of a nice loop hike around the town of Freising. The hike was about 6 or 7 miles and went along rivers, through woods, through farm fields, and through formal gardens... More

I did not take the brewery tour, but I did eat/drink in their restaurant. The service was good. Beers were delicious and had about 6 to choose from which is normal for a German brewery. Food was great too. I recommend the meat three ways entree.

This is one of the oldest breweries in Europe and the quality of the beer is superb! We went on a rainy afternoon (took a cab from the train station - get the cab number to call them back when you are ready to leave because this is a bit off the beaten path) and sat in the cozy restaurant... More

The sit down restaurant has FANTASTIC food. Of course, the beer is great, and there is a cool souvenir shop at the bottom of the hill. I'm guessing the self serve is on par with most biergarten food. My husband had a burger that had brie on it - delicious - and I had a salad with chicken and it... More

It was fun to experience a beer garden on a sunny Sunday afternoon. This is obviously a popular place to be. Beer was very good. Beer garden was crowded with lots of flies and smoking. Food was OK. Service was OK - waitress knew we spoke English but didn't bring us an English menu. We assumed they didn't have any... More

Very nice location, great view, the food at the beergarden however is very expensive compared to what you actually get. In my opinion, there are other beergardens around Freising that have better food but not a comparable atmosphere.

Enjoyed the drive...outdoor dining with a little rain for atmosphere...Vitus was excellent; chef's dessert not so much...dinner consisted of appetizer trio and fish meal was ok but definitely second to the Bier.

We got very confused trying to find it, and there aren't really signs for it (at least that we could find but walking there from the train station, perhaps we came to it the wrong way). If you walk up the hill to the left as you are leaving the train station, and all the way through the university almost,... More
