Panzer Kaserne is a U.S. military installation in Böblingen, Germany, part of US Army Garrison Stuttgart. The post is administered by United States Army Installation Management Command-Europe , a legacy from its use as an Army installation since just after World War II. Panzer also hosts the headquarters of United States Marine Corps Forces, Europe & Africa and various Special Operations units of the Army and Navy supporting EUCOM and AFRICOM.
Panzer Kaserne and nearby Patch Barracks were constructed for the German Army and were joined by a specially designed trail due to the weight of tank traffic. There is also a small nearby training area- unusual for a Kaserne in an urban or suburban area. The 8th Panzer Regiment was the first unit assigned to the then Ludendorff Kaserne.
