The Old Mountain Lodge at Camp King in Oberursel

Another opportunity for Open House to the Mountain Lodge at Camp King Oberursel was given on 29 June, when Col. Halverson (Ret.) came by for a visit in remembrance of the airlift Berlin-Frankfurt 1948/49.

Join me on a stroll through this landmark of military history.

These stairs are leading from the first floor to the second floor.

The basement with this haloed door truly has the look of a haunted house.

If you have ever been to the Mountain Lodge (a.k.a. Officers’ Club) in Camp King Oberursel, then I am sure you can appreciate this last tour of the building in the way it has been. Soon much will change when renovation is complete and apartments are for sale.
