Ledward Barracks in Schweinfurt

Friday evening we arrived in Schweinfurt for our weekend visit. We still had some time before meeting family, so we decided to swing by Ledward Barracks.

The gate on the right was closed and the barracks looked somewhat deserted.

By 2014, all troops will have left and the same is happening with Leighton Barracks in Würzburg now.

The latter news were just published two days ago, with an article in the Mainpost Newspaper Würzburg kauft Leighton-Areal (in German). The city of Würzburg is buying Leighton for euro 130 million.
