I was stationed in Hanau from 1967 until 1969. I loved the town. I went back in 2008 and 2009. It has really changed. I plan to go again in a couple of years.

Station at pioneer kaserne 1971 thru 1972, 543 HEM company. My wife Kay and I lived off post in Wolfgang across the tracks on Bogenstrasse #7. Really enjoyed our time in Germany. I see lots of pictures of pioneer on the Internet but nothing of the streets in Wolfgang. Anybody have any?

Living in Hanau
by: Frances James

My ex-husband was stationed at Fleigahorst Kasserne in the 3rd Armored Division. I lived is Hanau with him from November 1967 to September 1969. What an experience to live and work in another country and a beautiful country it was. It was my first time being away from California and I learned to live and love this wonderful place. I will never forget the time I spent in Hanau!

Army Brat in 1969
by: Dennis

My dad was stationed in Hanau from 1969 to 1970. I have many good memories from there; it is where I started school from first grade to part of second. I also had the best Christmas in 1969. It is still in my heart.

My Hanau
by: Anonymous

Hanau is my home town. I was born there in 1968. We left in 1982 and I've only been back once, in 1985, for about 1 Frankfurt, actually. Part of me wants to go back to Hanau but the other part is afraid that all the changes will hurt too much. Especially the absence of American Military! God Bless Them!

More changes to come
by: Rita

Hi Rodney,

I am glad you loved Hanau. I agree, there have been many changes since then, and more are to come.

Now that the American troops have left Hanau the housing areas are undergoing conversion.
Another big project is planned to make the city centre more attractive, although this is quite a bit controversial.

But there are also things that will never change, so you will certainly find some places just the same as they were 40 years ago.
