The town where I live is twinned with Ingolstadt. My Rotary club is twinned with the Ingolstadt club. I hear about Ingolstadt all the time, for one reason or another.
Then in summer/autumn '09 I rented the spare room to a student from Ingolstadt - she was doing a 2 month work placement and needed short term accommodation in a bit of a rush.
