Pope Benedict is making a trip home. From September 9-14, he will visit his home diocese of Munich and Freising. He will also make stops in Altotting and his adopted hometown of Regensburg, where his brother lives.

The Holy Father will celebrate Mass in Regensburg on September 12, 2006 at Islinger Feld, Regensburg (Bavaria.

Pope Benedict XVI will arrive at Islinger Feld at around 9:30 a.m. Holy Mass will begin at 10:00 a.m. and last for about two hours.

Tickets for the mass are required. Tickets are free of charge and still available. Requests must be made by sending in the official registration form. Tickets will be sent to you by mail from early July.

Islinger Feld is located within the city boundaries of Regensburg just south of the Autobahn A3 between Burgweinting and Oberisling. There will be specific areas reserved for altar boys/girls, priests, deacons, members of religious communities, disabled persons, and VIPs. All other areas are open to the public and cannot be reserved.

Due to the closing of the Autobahn A3 on September 12, long backups are likely at the Nittendorf exit west of Regensburg and the Rosenhof exit east of Regensburg.
