HAHN HUNSRÜCK HEIMAT 2009
HAHN: a village in the Hunsruck – HUNSRUCK, where German film-maker Edgar Reitz set his epic film series, spanning from 1918 to post re-unification of Germany in 1990.
HEIMAT – Home.
HAHN also was an important USAAF/NATO base. By 2009, with the changing political situation, it was almost unused, except for occasional NATO exercises.
HAHN is 117 km (73 miles) from Frankfurt. In 2009 RyanAir were flying a small schedule of flights from the UK to HAHN, a destination they called Franfurt Hahn.
As a military airbase it featured in the post German re-unification segment of Edgar Reitz’s HEIMAT
Waiting for a return flight to the UK I took photos.
