Mountain Lodge open to the public

Last Saturday, 16th March, 2013, visitors to the Camp King area had a rare chance to visit the Mountain Lodge, previously known as building 1027 and the officers’ mess, it was once intended to be the new town hall in Zeppelinheim after being exhibited in Frankfurt, but instead was dismantled and rebuilt at the end of the 1930s in Oberursel.

One of the investors, Stefan Kuhn, was on hand to answer questions about the building and I am grateful to him for permission take and publish photographs of the interior.

  1. Es ist schade, daß dieses Haus durch die Gauben und den Vorbau “sein Gesicht” verliert

    Das Treppenhaus ist fast so genial wie in Hogwards !

  2. Ludwig Van Boven says

    Es regt mich auf zu sehen wie Unsere Zeit so behandeld wird.
    Damals lag der Lodge so Schön aus, Strahlung war da, es war einer Schöner Zeit, und jetzt gaft Sie dahin, ĂŒberlassen an der Baufall.

    Verdammt, es darf so nicht enden.

    It pisses me off to see how that and other Buildings are left to their own abandonment, decay, call it what you wishes to, but that is not the purpose of this;
    damm, why does Ober-Ursel nothing about this??????

    can’t the neighborhood take care of history?????

    I’ve spend time at the DSCC and had to take care of the compound, since Germany took over it’s getting worse
