Freyung Feb 02, 2017
Freyung is the third of the market streets in the old town. In 1338, 134 years after its foundation, the town was extended once more. People who settled here were exempt from all taxes for 10 years, hence the name "Freyung", the "free" (i.e. tax-free) area. They also got the privilege to hold a big annual market and fair. On the other hand they had to build the town wall and dry the adjacent swamp. The quarter got its own parish church, the Church of St Jodok in the middle of the square.

While Altstadt and Neustadt are busy town streets, Freyung has a cosy character. The middle part is a park with trees and flower beds. This is a place to relax, very pleasant and pretty. I would not mind living there...

The market privilege is still prevalent: Freyung is the location of the Christmas market and two other market fairs during the year.
