Something great: Although the post is like any other with the basics, the best part is that you are close to all the major cities in Europe and can travel every weekend to somewhere new (either drive or hop on the train, not to mention all the MWR trips)!

Something you wish you could change: I wish that there was more activities on post and family was more valued.

General impressions of the installation: Good

    Grafenwoehr is the perfect oasis for travelers! My wife and I live on the west side of Germany and recently spent a weekend on the east end. Grafenwoehr’s lodging (built in 2010) is a comfortable and affordable place to stay with PX, food and shopette all within walking distance. Thanks for the article!
