Ordensburg - Sonthofen

Recommended Posts

Last week, picked up a couple of maps originally from Ordensburg - Sonthofen. The Ordensburg still stands to this day, intergrated into a bundeswehr garrison. From time to time I've drove past it, although it dominates the surrounding area, very little from its furnishings appear anywhere, occasionally the odd knife & fork turn up at the fleamarket, but not much else. Seeing these two maps in a second-hand shop, I couldn't wait to get my money out.

The maps measure 90cm x 72 cm ordanance style produced by the German & Austrian Alpen Club - 1935 cover the Allgäer and Lechtaler Alps, an area just behind the Ordensburg. In themselves, a couple of mundane items, but still not something you find every day.
