Interesting town near the Munich airport to explore?

Is there an interesting small town to explore near the Munich airport, before our flight back to the US. It will be on a Monday in June. Maybe some interesting shops, a good place to eat. Probably have 1 or 2 hours before heading to the airport. A town south (south-east) of the airport would work best, because I will be driving there from Salzburg. Thanks, jonathan

What's wrong with the center of Munich? It is like a village anyway and not too difficult too drive into. Park near Viktualienmarkt and walk to the Marienplatz.

Erding and Freising near the airport are nice too.

I have visited Freising for the very same reason. It's a lovely place to visit and, as a centre of brewing, a good place to have a last Bavarian beer before you depart.

Hi,

We liked Erding. Maybe a 15 to 20 minute drive from the airport. We spent our last night before an early am. flight here and enjoyed the old town.

How about Dachau? It is only about 30 minutes from airport but it is southwest. The Concentration Camp would be challenge to see in 1 to 2 hours but it will probably be the most compelling 2 hours you spend on your trip. May be too intense if you have young kids.

I always say go to Freising as it has the oldest brewery in the world, great box to tick if you drink there, and a nice compact one street town with easy bus ride to the airport.
