Baumholder Training Area under the Wehrmacht

Recommended Posts

There has been a museum opened in the former Baumholder Gasthaus "Zum goldenen Engel". It's about the history of Baumholder and the US Forces garrisoned in the town since the 1950's.

The museum was opened in September 2018 in the center of Baumholder in the former Gasthaus "Goldener Engel". It deals with the history of Baumholder and the region the city is located. Of course it tells the story of the military that played such an important role for the history of the town and the whole region. Some impressions:

The relation to the U.S. garrison is one main focus of this excellent made museum. Stairway to the "U.S. floor" (and yes, the first look on the split Jeep was killing me nearly).

The lady that gave us the tour really regretted that U.S. soldiers aren't allowed to leave the barraks in uniform any more to visit the city. This fact and the force reductions of course limited meetings between the soldiers and the inhabitants extremly. Much more to see in this fine museum, well worth a trip if you are visiting the area.
