Camp King Bus Stop in Oberursel, Germany

The first time I used the bus line 42, stopping at the newly installed bus stop called ‘Camp King’, the recorded voice announced this stop the German way, which came out as ‘Cump King’.

Years down the line, it got changed to the American pronunciation of the letter ‘a’. It sounds much better, I tell you.

The bus stop was added sometime after the new German housing area Camp King was completed in 2002.

This is the view from across the street (next to the U-Bahn tracks on the left). From here, you can see one of the remaining original US-army housing buildings. It is the only one with a slanted roof.

For many years, the building had been coated in a sandy color.

The bus route is heading the opposite way from here towards Bad Homburg.

I walked behind the tracks to get a better view of the former Camp King entrance. I got lucky and did not have to wait long for a car-free shot. This can be a very busy intersection at times.
