Moosburg a. d. Isar - Tradition between the Isar and Amper rivers

The oldest town in the Freising region is picturesquely nestled between the floodplains of the Isar and Amper rivers, at the transition to the rolling hills on the southern edge of the Hallertau. Moosburg's landmarks, the towers of St. Castulus Minster and St. John's Church, can be seen from afar. A visit to the historic old town is just as worthwhile as a hiking or cycling tour in the surrounding alluvial forests.
