My Trip to Ingolstadt

On my way back home from my summer holidays I also spent a day in Ingolstadt.

Ingolstadt is a big city in the German State of Bavaria and an important industrial location. It is one of the fastest-growing cities in Germany, the fifth largest city in Bavaria and the second largest German city on the Danube.

The Bavarian Army Museum was founded in 1879 in Munich and since 1972 it is housed in the New Castle of Ingolstadt. It has a large collection of military artifacts with a focus on the Bavarian Army. Currently the permanent exhibition at the New Castle is under construction, but a special exhibition can be visited.

The Reduit Tilly is a part of the Bavarian State Fortress of Ingolstadt. Today it houses one of the largest World War I museums in Europe and is a branch of the Bavarian Army Museum.

The Bavarian Police Museum is another branch of the Bavarian Army Museum. It was opened in 2011.

The Old Anatomy Building was constructed between 1723 and 1736 for the University of Ingolstadt. Today it houses the German Museum of Medical History. It is known as one of the settings in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.

The Kreuztor is one of the most famous sights of Ingolstadt. It was constructed in 1385 as gateway to Ingolstadt's medieval city centre.

The Church of Our Lady is a Gothic hall church. Its construction started in 1425.
