Weihenstephan is a part of Freising north of Munich, Germany. It is located on the Weihenstephan Hill, named after the Weihenstephan Abbey, in the west of the city. Freising is the oldest town between Regensburg and Bolzano, and is located on the Isar river in Upper Bavaria, near the Munich International Airport. The city is built on and around two prominent hills: the Cathedral Hill with the former Bishop’s Residence and Freising Cathedral, and Weihenstephan Hill with the former Weihenstephan Abbey, containing the oldest working brewery in the world. It was also the location of the first recorded tornado in Europe. The city is 448 meters above sea level.
