In the middle of April 1945 the allied had advanced as depicted on the map bellow.  The OKL decided, that the time had come to leave the Berlin area (23 APR 1945). The staff split with the primary part of OKL with Göring and the Chief of Staff going to the South, and another part called OKL Führungs Stab Nord going to the North.  This stab was also the OKL liaison team to OKW NorthOKL first located at Berchtesgarden and about a week later at Zell-am-See.  OKL Füst Nord West first moved to Rechlin and later into the Schleswig-Holstein area.  Oddly enough, the OKL used the name ROBINSON 5, which was the name hitherto used by the Füst Stab, whereas OKL Füst Nord retained the name KURFÜRST 1.  This could of course be a ploy to foil allied intelligence.

The GefStd was located in the Offiziers Kasino (Hoffmann II/2 p. 431).

 

This was originally the GefStd of NJRF 1.  When this HQ was disbanded it became an Ausweich GefStd of Kom.Gen.d.Deut.Lw.Däne.  It was then surveyed and prepared by Lft. Reich as an Ausweich GefStd (Herold 6), but when OKL heard about the facility, they found it in such an excellent condition, that they decided to take it over from Lft. Reich.
