Day Trips

Kaiserslautern is nestled in one of Germany's most exciting regions for holidays. No wonder the Palatinate is often referred to as "the Tuscany of Germany." Indeed, at the sight of fig, orange and lemon trees you might think yourself to be very close to the Mediterranean.

Visitors rave about the conviviality of the wine festival and delight in the dreamy villages with their picturesque vineyards, romantic castles, abbeys and castles, and the unspoiled natural environment, with woods, ravines, valley meadows and hills.
