Guided Tour of Camp King Oberursel

On Saturday, 21 June, 2014, the local guide Sylvia Struck is going to give a tour of an area in Oberursel known as the former military post “Camp King”. The tours usually take place in May and August every year, but this year, they are in June and September.

The tour covers the history of the area from the Reichssiedlungshof in the 1930s, through the time of the Dulag Luft, up to the end of the U.S. Army presence in 1992.

The meeting point is the Kinderhaus Camp King, Jean-Sauer-Weg 2  at 2 pm, and the tour costs 3 euro.
This is a good opportunity for local residents to learn more about the history of the area.

Mountain Lodge Oberursel

Over the years, the local historian Manfred Kopp had given the tours. I suppose his turning 80 just recently got him to delegate this job to a younger person. He is still very active though and a couple of days ago, we had a meeting to discuss the Open House event planned for 14 September (10:00 – 17:00) of this year. Another announcement will follow.

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.

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.
