  1. I was there in the late 80’s. I remember the view looking into the Alps. I sure made some memories there

  2. My family lived there from 1972-1975, I hated moving from the U.S. as a child but loved living there! the freedom we had as children was something that cannot e recreated, good memories.

  3. I lived on base from 1972 to 1976. All the buildings on the base were connected by underground tunnels.

  4. I need to come visit this blog more often! Your content is amazing 🙂

  5. Omg! I was stationed there when I was in the Air Force. Never took any pictures because it was such a gloomy and depressing place. But I did love Germany, had a great time my 3 years there.

    1. I have heard there was a tunnel from the station into the city, can you confirm this? I’m searching for the tunnel
