Wiesbaden, Germany


The base is small and you can pretty much walk through it in a couple of minutes, the base is located about 10 mins away from the housing area driving through the autobahn. There are 3 main housing areas, the biggest and most convinient one is Hainerberg where you will find the commissary and a little further down is the PX, movie theatre, telephone company and other small shops, These are all walking ditance from Hainerberg, you can also walk to downtown Wiesbaden which is approx 20/25mins walk and also to the train station which takes about the same time. Downtown is very pretty, beautiful architecture and you will also find an Irish pub which is very much liked by Americans and also a few other pubs/clubs. For those who don't drive there is a shuttle bus which goes through all housing areas, base and also another small housing area called Mainz-Kastel where you will find the car storage and car repair place, furniture, powerzone, sports shops and more... If you are like me and love the sun and the heat than this might not be the place to visit... Germany tends to be very cold and grey and summers don't get too hot. Some locals can be friendly and others can be rude the language is quite hard to learn but the USO offers German classes and also offers tours for around Germany or Europe. Best thing to do is get a cheap flight with Ryanair and travel Europe that way. There is a nice/new big gym with modern equipment and the CDC is good and reliable. Good luck!
