Hindenburg Barracks

The Hindenburg Kaserne, also known as Hindenburg Barracks, was a former military garrison located in the Zellerau district in the city of Würzburg, in Franconia, Germany. The construction of the kaserne began in 1934 and it was named in honor of Paul von Hindenburg, a field marshal who commanded the German army in World War I and who was elected as President of the German Reich in 1925. In 1935, the kaserne was given over to the Wehrmacht.

After World War II, the Hindenburg Kaserne was occupied by the U.S. Army from 1945 until its closure in 1993. It was the location of the 123rd Signal Battalion, the communications unit of the 3rd U.S. Infantry Division. The battalion had numerous vehicles and technical equipment, which had to be stored in garages and storage halls.

In 1990, the withdrawal of the U.S. battalion from the Hindenburg Kaserne began, and it was finally dissolved in 1993
