Reichsjägerhof Rominten

Seems that "Unsure Hermann" had other hunting lodges besides Carinhall, this one was in the Rominten Heath in East Prussia (now Poland) and was also blown up in the Spring of '45

Further Info: Rominten was a well-known hunting spot for Centuries, the Kaiser's old Hunting Lodge and a bridge still stand, but all the surrounding buildings have been destroyed. Göring built his lodge in about 1936 after failing to get control of the Kaiser's old complex. The building was a more rustic rough copy of Carinhall. It was blown up in late 1944 as the Russians closed in. The current Russo-Polish border runs right through the Rominten Heath, I believe the ruins are on the Russian side and apparently were largely undisturbed until after the fall of Communism, but were then looted and the pieces reused or sold.

Does anyone know how many times Göring visited Reichsjägerhof?

The ruins are on the Russian side but very close to the polish border. For that reason forigners need a special permit to visit the area. This permit can be obtained by the local security authorities in Kaliningrad.
