Dietfurt is a town in the district of Neumarkt in Bavaria, Germany. It is situated on the river Altmühl, 38 km west of Regensburg. It is known as the "Bavarian China", Chinese is one of the town's official languages, and a "Chinese Culture Festival" is held in Dietfurt on a yearly basis.
During the "Chinese Carnival" locals dress up in Asian costumes and hand over the rule of their town -- at least metaphorically -- to a "Chinese emperor" chosen from among the townspeople. The town's mayor is relegated to the status of "imperial Mandarin" for the week.
