Colonel Charles B. King Memorial at Camp King Oberursel

Just last year, I had taken a photo of the flowers left on 8 May in memory of Colonel Charles B. King.

Now this year, I’ve noticed the plaque in front is gone. I will notify the office in charge of this.

WWII Era Photos of Oberursel and its POW Collection and Interrogation Center

Our local historian, Manfred Kopp, has gathered all his material about Oberursel and its significance during the WWII era in a presentation called ‘Flieger ohne Flügel’ (Pilots without Wings).

This 53-page article also contains some photos taken during that time (1939 – 1945).

Back to 2021. This house was the former Bieneninstitut (Bee Institute) before WWII, and is now in private hands.

This is the path leading up to the Mountain Lodge at Camp King. Both photos were taken about a week ago. Spring is late this year.

The Mountain Lodge, Oberursel, in Autumn Light

A while back I had posted about a possible trimming or chopping of the big tree in front of the Mountain Lodge.

This was not to be as the attendance of 10 workers for two full working days was just meant for training.

The autumn light on this particular day in late November was spectacular.

The Mountain Lodge at Camp King and Current Landscaping

It was a typical foggy November sight, when I passed by the Mountain Lodge this morning.

As I got closer, I noticed there were not only dog walkers abound, but also city council workers.

I counted close to 10 workers behind the red and white barrier tape.

I don’t know what is going to happen to that tree, which stands closest to the Lodge, so we shall see. I will keep you posted.

Edited on 5 Feb 2012:

All this was only a two-day training session for the city council workers.

Over the years, we have taken many walks around our neighborhood, Camp King. There is relatively little traffic, and a nice park to walk through.

The left side is the meadow, which slopes down from the Mountain Lodge. The right side shows part of the public park.

We consider ourselves fortunate to be living here in this part of Oberursel.
