Served four years in Osnabruck, met my German wife there. She showed me a great deal of Osnabruck many of the Brits who take there Island abroad with them do not see.
It is a lovely old town with lots of history. Some fabulous restaurants and some lovely friendly bars hidden away in the back-streets. It has a bar that plays live Jaz music every Sunday near the old town wall gate, and some very good shopping areas.
The Garrison facilities, though adequate, pale into squalor by comparison.
is top place tras out of all places wouldnt say is best unit but not too bad quite good social side to it but as said before in earlier comments loads to do especially if you can work out there are nore than half a dozen pubs and two clubs unlike most people in tras but again thankgod they cant work it out as would only spoil them
This is official Osnabruck Garrison WILL be closing by 2009 with 4 Bde returning to UK That is straight from Ministerial level & I have the letter to prove it & in 3 years I WILL ALSO HAVE my UB 40 to confirm it ....in the meantime have a great time it can be a great place despite it's reputation .......!!!
