I lived in Herborn-Seelbach between the ages of 8 and 13. I was just curious as to what became of the American military base and housing. The school. Cafe Gobel (my mother would send me there everyday for bread and pastries). The Seelbacher Hof. I loved the time I spent there and in Pirmasens (where I lived until I was 22). I live in Florida now.
Thank you for your time.

My name is Jack Tierney and I spent some time in herborn seelbach when I was in the army, between 1970-72. I met a girl there who I liked very much. I believe her name was Ute Renate, She would be about 46 or 47 now. Is there any way to find out if she is still in herborn-seelbach? Would there be any way to possbily track her down, By the way, I saw the gausthause I used to frequent in one of the pictures. The yagerschnitzel, pomfrets and beer were excellent. You have a nice site.

Hello my name is John Stubbings. I live in Olney Maryland U.S.A . As a young man I was stationed at the Aartal Kaserne. I was there from the year 1979 to the year 1981. I think Herborn Seelbach is truly one of the most beautiful places in the world. I also think the german people that live in Herborn seelbach are the most friendliest and kindest people Ive ever met. Sometimes I think of Herborn Seelbach with the fondest memories I have in my life. I am Happy to see that the U.S. Army is no longer at Aartal Kaserne. I think Germany will have a better future without American , or any other foreign soldiers. Some day I hope to come visit again. I am wondering if Deckers is still a Gasthoff ? is the Seelbacherhof still in business . Do they still drink Barenbrau.Do they still have the Kermish. I miss these things so much.Please E-mail me and let me Know how things are . Thanks in advance .

Nochmals vielen Dank!!

I just wanted to say Thanks for the Photos of Herborn-Seelbach, I was
there in the early 1970's and we enjoyed it very much. My oldest daughter
was born in Herborn. We also lived in Obersheld for a while.

I've really enjoyed your site with the pictures of Herborn-Seelbach. I lived there from summer 1976 to summer 1978 as a US military dependent. I spent many happy hours hiking and biking through the forests around the town. When my aunt came to visit, she sent me many times over to Cafe Goebel for "fier und swansig broetchen" (forgive my spelling). The housing area was very near the cafe, and I went to the American Elementary School, which occupied one end of the German school. Herborn-Seelbach is definitely the prettiest place I have lived; thanks again for the pictures - quite different scenery than here in Central Texas!

Not sure what to say, it has been too many years since I have been to
Herborn-Seelbach. Some of my fondest memories are from there. I knew a few
people there but I am not sure if they are still in Herborn. Would it be
possible for you to maybe look them up and see? Just in case their names are
Gunther Toss, Mona Mann, Sabine and Elke, although I cannot remember their
last names. But I used to frequent Josefs for his calzone and lasagne!! Man
was that awesome. Anyway I sincerely hope that I hear from you.
A little about myself, I was in Herborn Seelbach in 1984 and 1985.
American Army, my name is Jeff Park and I had a close friend named Michael Renner. My
first Sargeant at the time was Gunther Goebel and he had a daughter which I
tried to reach after his death. If you know any of these people would you
please give them my e-mail addtess and ask them to write me.
Also "DANKESCHOEN" for the wonderful photographs. Had it not been for you I
might not have ever seen those streets again!!!
Thank You so much,
How nice to see photos of Herborn Seelbach.
I was stationed there as part of the US Army from 0191-1291
and really enjoyed the opportunity to see this part of
Germany. Thanks for your efforts in bringing these photos
across the world. (I currently reside in Houston, Texas, USA).
I hope to return some day and visit the Hotel Thielmann
located on the way to Marburg. The Thielmann's were always
Best of luck.
We live in Brisbane, Australia and we met a backpacker from Herborn whom we are
trying to contact. His name is Chris and he lives with his family on the outskirts of
Herborn. He is 27 years old and a student. He rides his bike from his house into the village so
it might be some distance out. He was in Queensland October/November 1998 and recently traveled
in England with his father and sent us a postcard.
We do not know his surname or address to reply to him. Seeing as Herborn is a
small village we wondered if you could help us with any information?
My name is Bev Van Slobbe. Our family had him to visit us for meals. We met
in the camping ground at Girraween National Park in Queensland and promised to keep in touch.
He has sent us several postcards but omits to put his surname and address.
PS How is Bento?
We liked your homepage!
This is Bev Van Slobbe from Australia contacting you again. I contacted you back in
September as I am trying to find a young man who was travelling in Queensland. He has sent
me post cards from his latest travels asking me to write to him but neglecting to give an
address. He is about 28 years old and lives in your town of Herborn.
I have enclosed a photo of Chris with us so perhaps that will help to identify him.
Chris is on the left - me, Bev, in the middle and my husband Paul on the right.
i was surfing the net and i discovered your website...in 1968-1969 i lived in
herborn seelbach actually i lived in kleine offenbach and was with the american
army at the kaserne...i have many wonderful memories of my time in the
westerwald, although like a lot of young men the memories were tinged with a lot
of beer....some of which i consumed at a a gasthaus that i believe is in the
corner of one of your pictures...its ironic that you work in the chemical field
as i have a daughter who is graduating from princeton university next year with a
degree (we hope) in chemical engineering ...her thesis is hot atoms in the
internal combustion engine...i assume that you will know what that means , as i
looked over your cv
other memories include many wonderful meals at the gasthaus fisher in herborn
which i assume may no longer be there....as well as many happy times during the
fasching festivals....i have lost my address book from that time so that the many
friends have faded into the back of my memor...except a schoolteacher in
offenbach named ingrid varney who i assume is married and now with
grandchildren....thanks for rekindling so many nice memories for me ...your
website is outstanding...vielen dank
