Excerpted Research Information About the U.S. Army Garrison, Hohenfels, Germany (attributed to The Official Web Site of USAG Hohenfels):   “U.S. Army Garrison Hohenfels provides premier installation management support and services that enhance the readiness of Joint and Multinational forces, ensures the highest level of quality of life in a secure and sustainable environment, and enables Soldiers to soldier, Leaders to lead, and Families to grow.

 

The Hohenfels Training Area is located in the Free State of Bavaria in the Oberpfalz (Upper Palatinate) and is named after the market town of Hohenfels.


Throughout Bavaria's history, there were many armies that roamed this region. The city of Regensburg was founded by the Romans in 179 A.D. In 788, Charlemagne pulled Bavaria into his empire. In the 1600s, the Swedes occupied Regensburg, and Napoleon was based in Regensburg in 1809 during his fight with the Austrians.


The German Army founded the training area in Hohenfels in 1938. In 1951, it became a U.S. Forces training area and was used primarily by U.S. Forces until 1956. In 1955, the German Bundeswehr was founded, and in 1956 the first German unit was stationed in Camp Poellnricht until their inactivation in 2001.


From 1956 to 1988, the Hohenfels Training Area was used by NATO forces consisting primarily of American, German, Canadian, and occasionally British and French forces. In 1988, Hohenfels became the home of the Combat Maneuver Training Center, the mission of which was to provide realistic combined arms training for the United States Army, Europe, and Seventh Army's maneuver battalion task forces in force-on-force exercises.”

Material(s)/Format:   Ceramic porcelain

 

Size/Measurements:  5 ½”H

 

Quantity: One (1)

 

Condition:   The stein is in pristine, mint condition, exhibiting no loss whatsoever to any of its 24 karat gold or painted decoration embellishments (there is a flash glare appearing on the number “5" in the photo, which makes it seem to be missing gold, but that is only flash glare - the gold is in perfect condition), with colorful graphic imagery remaining as vibrant and vividly crisp as when it was brand new! Being noted for purposes of accuracy (these are not flaws), are the presence of a from-the-factory drilled hole on the upper underside portion of the handle and two indentations on the upper part of the handle (one on each side). These were likely for a lid which originally was intended for this stein, but either was never attached or is simply no longer present.
