To find our location, please take Autobahn 6 (A6) toward Amberg until you reach the exit for German Federal Highway 299/Amberg-West. Continue straight on Highway 299 for about five kilometers, through the town of Amberg. Outside the town of Amberg, you will come to a fork in the road and a sign indicating Vilseck.

Once you pass through the main gate and inspection area on post, continue driving straight until you reach Artillary Road. Turn right on to turn Artillery Road.
