Top position in condensed matter physics

While everyone in the German research landscape was following the selection of the "Elite Universities" during the last days, we've had some remarkable news here ourselves: the DFG, which awards all the federal research funding in Germany, published the statistics of the last years. The full "Förderatlas" can be found on the website of the DFG, here's the interesting bit (self-made translation):

In the comparison of all German universities, Regensburg managed to get to rank 4 in physics in total, and to a clear number one position in the field of condensed matter physics! Actually we've gotten more funding in CM than TU München and LMU München together! Now if that's not something to celebrate...
Summarizing, now you know where to go for top-notch physics research. :)
