USAG Bavaria-Garmisch Military Community Installation Access

Edelweiss Lodge and Resort is located on Sheridan Kaserne and our Vacation Village campground is located within walking distance, across the Loisach River, on Artillery Kaserne.  The Resort is a tenant activity on a USAG Bavaria installation; therefore, Resort guests are subject to USAREUR directives regarding installation access. Individuals not registered in the Installation Access Control System (IACS) with a valid CAC or are not listed on the local Garmisch Military Community Access Roster must be signed in by their guest sponsor who must be a DoD CAC holder with sign-in privileges. 

Eligible diplomats and Embassy personnel without a Civilian Acccess Card (CAC) or USAREUR wide installation pass with sign on privileges, must submit their and the information for all their guests before you arrive at least 7 days in advance or you will be delayed gaining access to the base each time they enter. 

When you first arrive at Edelweiss Resort, we strongly recommend you do so through the Sheridan Main ACP (vehicle gate).  This will allow for the verification of authorized access, and will provide sign-in capability if temporary installation access is necessary. Initial sign-in capability is NOT available at the Sheridan pedestrian gate.  This is especially important if you are arriving by taxi or bus.  Ensure that you tell your driver that you need to be dropped at the Sheridan Main ACP.

AER 190-16 prescribes the policy, responsibilities and procedures for granting access to U.S. Forces installations in the European theater by using the Installation Access Control System (IACS).

For those personnel assigned in the USAREUR/USAFE footprint that have installation access granted in IACS throughout USAREUR/USAFE, access will be similar to that on your home-installation.

For others, it is possible to request installation access prior to your arrival. Edelweiss Resort can request installation access on your behalf no sooner than 30-days and no later than 5-days prior to your arrival. Please submit the following information :


·  Guest Last Name

·  Guest First Name

·  Citizenship / Passport Nationality

·  Passport Number

·  Start Date (Date you arrive)

·  Expiration Date (Date you depart)

·  Accompanying Sponsor Last Name

·  Accompanying Sponsor First Name

·  Accompanying Sponsor Phone Number

·  Accompanying Sponsor Email Address

·  Accommodation Location (Edelweiss Lodge & Resort or Vacation Village)

·  Edelweiss Resort confirmation number 

The information listed above should be provided for each individual traveling in your party. If you do not have USAREUR/USAFE-wide installation access and do not coordinate for installation access prior to your arrival, there may be a delay or in some cases denied access to the installation. A temporary installation pass will be issued to authorized personnel by the Garrison at the access gate (Sheridan Main Gate only).  

In order to prevent potential frustration during installation access, upon arrival and throughout your stay, please consider the following:

·  Always carry two forms of identification

·  If you require a sponsor, please ensure that you only attempt entry with your sponsor present

If you have any comments regarding installation access, please provide feedback on the Interactive Customer Evaluation (ICE) site.  Please be as specific as possible.
