Nope, sure isn't right! It down not like the quadrangle I stood and walked across,drove through and so for a few very good years. We gave up great place. My understanding is the kaserne was US property due to we captured it in the war.

Yeah bost, It was as I remember, a SS Officer training facility. It's been awhile, since I have tried finding info on the net about Flint. Tried on and off for years. Then again, it's probably just my PC and the internet. I know, I type the right stuff into the search engines. It's right to me anyway. Why the powers to be ever decided to move out of there, I'll never get.

The Quad

Yea, I remember the quad. The barracks behind the quad, a few of the building surrounding the quad. Man, those new pictures sure look different. Been about 15 years since I was there. Wasn't there supposed to be a tunnel from the quad to that pond nearby?

Satellite view of Bad Toelz

I was searching for something else. A Place just out of Toelz, I went to alot and became good friend's with the owner, his mom and Oma. Can't remember the name of his place though, but have some idea how I used to drive to it. That and I have a 1:50 000 map sheet.

Anyway, the satellite view is pretty good and shows that Gastropod invading the Quadrangle.

Great view. Sure bings back a lot of great memories. Do you recall all the "stuff" that would be found occasionally? My understanding is there are several floors under the main level and they ended up being flooded to keep people out and away from old stuff such as booby traps, weapons etc.

Damm!!!!!!!!!!!!!!t
I just typed alot of response hit enter and....... told me I'm logged off and I can't find all that typing and response bost. I'll try again tomorrow. I'll type it in Word and copy. I did NOT log off and I was typing. I'll beat it. Fought against saying stuff to answering machines, when they first came out. After I got out of the Army, I refused to order through the clown thing at the drive up windows. Also refused to use a puter until 1994. Ok, I've given in to all that to some extent. Still...... there was nothing wrong with the old way......

Yes bost, I do. When I was there, I heard that too. There are supposed to be 5 to 6 levels under the Kaserne. Sooooooooo, being us, we tried, when we had the time, to get at them. We got down three levels. The flooded, then sealed levels were 4,5 and maybe six. Yes, because of the supposed booby traps. Perhaps they learned in levels 1 and 2. I dunno. Maybe an old SF urban legend joke. I do know this. The Nazi's were great at underground stuff. My German teacher in Oberamergau, pointed out the window during one class and speaking in German, told us how her husband worked in THAT mountain...... building Messerschmits. (SP) BTW, Flint Kaserne was scheduled for bombing in ’45, December I believe, but the weather was bad.

I knew quite of few locals in Toelz. One of them took me some 30 or so minute drive out of town to a lake. Don’t remember the name of it…… used to . Took me to a place on the shore. There was a cement post about 5’ high, the size of a 4x4. Told me that as the war was coming to an end and we and the Russians were closing in, the Nazis dumped a ton of weapons in the lake at that place. Explained to me that it dropped off steep and deep, 100s of meters. He knew cause his Dad served during the war and was on that detail. I had been diving since ’61……… besides licking my lips….. well, forget the other excitement. Anyway, I would love to dive that spot. Thing is, I couldn’t find it, even if I were there now.

Thx for the pics Jaeger. Sind sie in Bayern?

Thing is. Those are the new Flint. To me a desecration of an incredible Historic Facility. Not to mention, how impressed and how much I loved being there. Flint Kaserne never ceased to impress.

Yep; the "old" Flint Kaserne was fantastic. I don't know much of it's history but there is a lot of history to it. Why we gave up a place like that, and we owned it. I am glad I wasn't stationed there when they made the move to Panzer Kaserne. That would be like going from heaven to hell.

Rather than Google and find a map of Germany, which I have a few of, just not available right now. Let me ask you this. How far from Toelz are you? Driving wise.

Asking for a couple reasons, I'll get to those later. One more question. How often do you get to Bad Toelz?

Thanks..........
