Elvis Presley lived near here

Today is the 45th anniversary of Elvis Presley’s death on 16th August, 1977.

During his time in the U.S. Army, we was stationed in Germany between October 1958 and March 1960. Although stationed in Friedberg, he lived for much of that time in Bad Nauheim, but for part of 1958 he stayed in Ritter’s Park Hotel in Bad Homburg, today part of the Steigenberger chain.

When the Camp King area of Oberursel was being developed 20 years ago, a road there was named after him:

Dieser Weg wird nicht geräumt

Another sign, seen at the start of a path in Horb a.N., warning that the path will be neither cleared nor will salt or grit be strewn on it if there is snow or ice on the ground.  Use it at your own risk!

Dieser Weg wird bei Schnee und Eisglätte weder geräumt noch bestreut.  Benutzung auf eigene Gefahr.


… is another word for a set of traffic lights:

Ersatzneubau von drei Verkehrssignalanlagen
