Outside of the Bavarian capital of Munich lies the town of Neufahrn bei Freising — in the mountains. At just under 500 meters about sea level, this area is perfect for nature lovers and those who want to get breathtaking photos of the scenery.
If you are looking for the best place to take a hike (or just have a quiet picnic), choose a place along the Isar River. There are so many different nature preserves here including the Echinger Lohe, the Echinger Gfild (yup, correctly spelled) and the Garchinger Heide.
Forests are what folks love in most parts of Germany, but in Neufahrn bei Freising, there aren’t any large forest areas. This means that you are going to be able to see the scenery better and get that perfect shot from your camera.
Those coming to this area in the summer might be wondering where all of the locals hang out. The answer is at the Mühlseen, which are three lakes that were man made when the Autobahn that goes through the area was built. This area is used for water sports, swimming, and so on.
The smallest of the lakes has been left to nature, so if you are wondering what more than 30 years of no intervention from man will get you, then take a look at this lake.
Because this is Bavaria, of course there are tons of churches to visit. The one that comes most recommended is the St. Martin Church. The church itself isn’t overly interesting; what is interesting is the fact that you can see the jewelry of St. Martin, who the church is named after.
Because of the city’s close proximity to the huge Munich Airport, it is pretty easy to get to Munich itself; and after a couple of days in a big German city, you are going to want to come to Neufahrn bei Freising because you’ll need the chance to get out and have a break from the hustle and bustle.
