Eichstätt is a small town in Upper Bavaria which until the 1972 redrawing of municipal boundaries was administratively part of Middle Franconia. The seat of a bishopric and a small university, the town is fiercely Catholic, which may have played a role in separating it from the more Lutheran Middle Franconia.
