Today there are more than 200 buildings spread throughout the area. In the central area of the air base with its airfield, aircraft hangars, supply buildings, sports facilities, accommodation and training facilities, the former so-called “Luftkriegsschule” and “Kilometerbau” are the most important core elements. The majority of this building stock from the 1930s is classified as a listed monument.
Formerly built by the Americans for their stationed soldiers and their families, the housing estates in the west are located outside the fenced-in military compound and now house civilian housing.
Within the scope of a temporary building permit, BMW is using two former aircraft hangars on the northeastern edge of the “Driving Academy Maisach” for the “Maisach Driving Safety Centre”.
Since 2014, the government of Upper Bavaria has been operating an initial reception facility for refugees in the building of the former Luftkriegsschule, which is affiliated to the Bavarian barracks in Munich and is therefore referred to by the state authorities as a “Dependance”.
