U.S. Army Garrison Stuttgart Public Affairs Office
The Panzer Local Training Area is steeped in history. During World War II, from 1939 to 1944 German armed forces tank crews trained at the LTA, but its history goes back even further.
The Duke of Baden-Württemberg, Karl Alexander, built a vast system of tunnels in 1733 to execute his princely right to hunt and show the world his noble powers as an accomplished hunter and statesman.
