In early-13th-century, was built the "new town" and later Straubing became the capital city of Bavaria-Straubing (independent duchy between 1353-1432). Straubing is one of Bavaria's 5 ducal residences (together with Landshut, Munich, Ingolstadt and Burghausen). The city suffered major devastations in 1944-1945 (at the end of WW2, from several US air bombings) and in November 2016 (a fire destroyed most of the Town Hall).
