Situated just 11 kilometres north of Munich International Airport, the town is one of the oldest and most picturesque towns in Germany, and perfect for exploring by car. Immediately striking are the town's two most prominent hills, the Weihenstephan Hill and the Cathedral Hill. Upon the former sits Weihenstephan Abbey, the oldest functioning brewery in the world, whilst the latter plays host to the stunning Saint Mary and Corbinian Cathedral, home to some of the most breathtaking art and sculpture in Germany. Adjacent to the Cathedral is a wonderfully old fashioned library stocked with a wealth of rare and intriguing latin texts. A short drive away are the spectacular Sichtungsgarten Weihenstephan, horticultural gardens famous for their beauty, and perfect for a late afternoon stroll before heading to one of the town's many justifiably-renowned taverns or restaurants.
