Nuremberg Harley Davidson shop, 2011. Took Shannon Ryan and I half a day to find this place.

I revisited Nurnberg in 1984 with my wife.  The guards took our passports before they would allow us to enter and stayed with us every minute.

Just saw the Tribuneplatz on episode 12 of Amazon Prime's "The Grand Tour" with Jeremy Clarkson, James May, and Richard Hammond. The gag was they were there because when James was telling his sat nav (in German) to the Nurburgring, it interpreted it as either "Nürnberg" or "Norisring". Remember the 200 Meilen von Nürnberg races through there?

I was attached to the 2d ACR as the ASA/Sigsec Advisor from Jan 74 to Nov 75.  Worked out of the Regimental S-2 Office.

I was never stationed there but I went to a great 3-day concert at Zeppelin Stadium in 1974.

Dave,

Thanks for the heads up. Still, I think I will take that trip and see what's left of the place. I was there from '89-'93. There used to be this pizza carry out across the street..that was good pizza!!

I visited Nuremberg in 2011 with Shannon Ryan. Wasn't much left of Merrill Barracks.
