Freilassing makes the hearts of railroad fans beat faster with the Lokwelt museum. Created in cooperation with Deutsches Museum in Munich, the railroad museum in a historic round locomotive shed presents many of the prominent locomotives from the Deutsches Museum's collection. The round locomotive shed includes 20 track stands and served railroad operations in Freilassing for 90 years and features an architecturally spectacular roof support structure.
The town, which is located directly on the border to Austria, otherwise offers beautiful nature with an Alpine panorama, hotels, country inns and private accommodation - and the Mozart city of Salzburg in the immediate vicinity. Culinary variety is provided by home-style Bavarian inns, specialty restaurants with international cuisine, cafés and pubs.
Whether in the outdoor pool or in the Lokwelt - family-friendly entertainment is provided. Those who love peace and quiet can enjoy nature in the Saalchaue along the Saalach/Salzach and at the Ausee. The two rivers are also the territory of artist Alois Wimmer. He creates artificial masterpieces from roots and alluvial wood of the Saalach and Salzach rivers: ptarmigans and springboks made of maple, numerous ducks and waterfowlk, a large capercaillie, lizards or even a wolf's head made of alluvial wood.
