Following Elvis; Bad Nauheim, Germany

Today I went and ventured in the footsteps of the king; Elvis Presley.  As everyone should know Elvis was drafted into the Army and spent 2 years in Germany.  He was stationed in Friedberg (which is now closed) and lived a few minutes away in the town of Bad Nauheim.  They are very proud to be a part of the Elvis legacy.

I hope you has a much fun looking at these photos as I did touring around Bad Nauheim finding these locations.

 These first set of pictures are of the Villa Grunewald.  Elvis lived in the top floor of this hotel for a time.  The signs are posted around the hotel as well as a memorial along the corner where people still pay tribute to the king.

Elvis moved from the hotel and rented this house for the majority of his time in Germany.

There are also a couple of locations around town where Elvis had shot photos.  One was a publicity photo that was then used on a cover for a lyric book and also an ablum cover for A Big Hunk of Love.

This was just an extra shot because I thought it was a pretty view of the water from the bridge.
