Are you a Pope Benedict XVI fan? Are you travelling to Germany?

If so, you'll definitely want to get the book mentioned here:

Tourist guide to 'Pope's Bavaria' hits bookstores

Tourists can discover the small church in Regensburg where Ratzinger said Mass every morning as a "volunteer" because it didn't have a priest before he headed to work at the nearby university where he taught theology.
They'll find the house with peaked eves in Aschau am Inn where his family lived after his father spoke out against the Nazi regime in 1932 and was forced to move.
Pilgrims are also told where they can buy "Pope beer" bearing portraits of a white-robed Benedict and munch on "Ratzinger cake" made of chocolate and marzipan.
