A visit to Rominten Reichsjägerhof and Jagdschloss

Post by Makarov » 09 Jul 2013 19:50

In late May I visited the ruins of Göring's Reichsjägerhof and Kaiser's Jagdschloss in Rominten heide, Russia. The places are very difficult to find because they are located in a remote area in the forest, close to polish border. No road signs and no one to ask, even the guide had some difficulties to find it. I was suprised how well preserved the ruins of Reichsjägerhof were. With a lay out of the house it was very easy to locate each room.

It must be awesome to visit the site, and compare the ruins with the ground plans of the original building.
Thanks for the new photo additions !

Cor, I guess this is not what you were asking for but you will get an impression where I approximately were standing when I took the pictures.

1 - Staff wing toward dining hall.
2 - Corner in the dining hall.
3 - Cellar below Göring´s quarter.
4 - Cellar below the dining hall.
5 - Colapsed chimney in Göring's office.
6 - Toward the tea haus (approximately 50 meters below the main building)
7 - Underground corridor under the staff wing (you can see the dining hall's colapsed floor to the right).
8 - View toward the terrace and stairs to the cellar below the terrace.
9 - View to the terrace with the stairs leading up to the terrace (picture taken from the guest wing and not the inner yard as I stated in a previous post).

The groundplan/map surely helps to put the photo's in perspective.
Thanks.

It looks like even Hitler was there, according to this site.

I'm quiet sure that the picture in the previous post is taken at (alte) Carinhall and not at Reichsjägerhof. Compare the small wall just behind Göring and you can see the similarities. The red lines indicates where Göring and Hitler are standing.

you are probably right, but as we see in the picture it looks like they are rebuilding the place in the old picture.


by the way both places has some similarities.

Yes, your'e right, There are some architectural similarities between alt Carinhall and Reichsjägerhof. In 1937 Carinhall was extended and alt Carinhall became a integrated part of the new building. Reichsjägerhof looked like a bigger version of alt Carinhall and though it was big it was not even close in comparison what Carinhall later became.
