Photographer's Note

Erding is a town in Bavaria, Germany, and capital of the district Erding. It has a population of approximately 35,00 people. Erding is located about 45 kilometers (28 miles) northeast of central Munich, about a 40-minute drive by car. Regular S-Bahn trains connect to Munich and beyond. Munich is accessible by bike lanes, although it's slightly too far for regular commuting except for enthusiasts.
Erding calls itself the world's largest wheat beer brewery. This beer is widely available and popular across Germany and the European Union. Erdinger was founded in 1886 by Johann Kienle. Erdinger beer is the best-known culinary product of the city. However the brewery did not receive its current name until 1949 from its owner Franz Brombach, who had acquired the brewery 14 years earlier. Due to the nearby Munich Airport and Amadeus data center, both of which employ people from many countries, Erding has quite an international feel, despite its relatively small size.
It is a great place to visit. I have stayed here several times. It is very easy to leave your car at your hotel and grab an S bahn into Munich. I attended the Oktober Fest in Munich via this method. Much easier than staying in Garmisch and going to the Oktober Fest by bus, which I also have done. For me this is the way I have entered this city via this route of signs.
