Pope Benedict XVI. wants to spend time also in Thuringia – during his extended Germany visit in 2009.

There is a good chance that the Pope will come to Heiligenstadt in the Eichsfeld, said Prime Minister Dieter Althaus (CDU) in an interview with the radio station Antenne Thuringia.

After a private audience with the Pope on Thursday, the Holy Father has accepted his invitation.

The roundrtrip to his German home country is scheduled for April 2009. Besides the Eichsfeld, it is also planned to visit Berlin, he said.

There, he will meet with German President Horst Koehler and Berlin Mayor Klaus Wowereit (SPD).
