Tower Tour For BCSC Members Only
Historical Knowledge of the Grafenwoehr Training Area
RSVP Deadline: October 21, 2019
Built in 1909, the 43.5 meter high tower on Tower Barracks quickly became the landmark of the Grafenwoehr training area and the city. It was a miracle that it survived the bombardment of April 1945 unharmed. Join fellow BCSC members to learn about the historic Water Tower landmark on Tower Barracks.
