    The Architecture is some of the finest in the world there is much to see there and of course not enough time to see it all.

    You should also go on a diet ahead of time, since eating is a major part of the place's charm. The music is also quite central to the wonder of the place. Just bring a great deal of money. However, there is much more value for money spent than, say, where I live, which is horribly expensive and has a low quality of life.

    all the best, FB

ID:	277528The single shoulder cord is a Habsburg tradition, imitated by the SA and SS. The rank is shown on the collar patches, as is the Waffenfarbe, which has similarities to the Wehrmacht and Bw, but also great differences.

    Postscriptum: the black SS uniform is from Heidelberg.

    The Prussians showed the rank on the shoulder and had decorative collar patches, more or less, while the Austrians showed the rank on the collar with more or less decorative shoulder cords, kinda.

ID:	277532Here are a year's class of the general staff course. Notice the Bw mountain trooper there. Bavarian Bw mountain troops and the Bundesheer persons are quite close, even in the neutrality period.
