Gartenschau Kaiserslautern

Reviewed By Quinten S

This place has a bit of everything! There is a Lego gallery and shop, dinosaur sculptures, a small cactus garden, a small rose garden, multiple play areas, including one with water, large grassy areas with shade, mini golf, a small soccer house, a small skate park, and to top it off, a cafe for lunch or snacks! It was a blast for our whole family!

Japanischer Garten (Japanese Garden)

Reviewed By SwedeAbroad - Mansfield, United Kingdom

They charge €5.50 to get in which is rather steep given how small the Gardens are. However, I saw four people maintaining the Gardens which I guess warrants the expensive entrance. The Gardens are nice but small. I spent around 20 minutes there and I took my time walking around.
There is a small tea room at the back but it was closed when I visited.
It is worth a visit if you enjoy well maintained Gardens but be aware that it is small.

This was my second visit to 1FC Kaiserslautern. Having sat in the main stand last time, for this match I stood on the massive home Terrace. Excellent atmosphere and typically bonkers German fans.

Burg Hohenecken

Reviewed By sean b - Fayetteville, North Carolina

I used to live down the street from one of the many trails that lead to this castle. It's a nice little hike with some good views once you're up top. Keep walking and you'll find a playground for the kids (or adults). Great for cross country running or just walking the dog.

Humberg Tower

Reviewed By mjgate - Atlanta, Georgia

The walk was about 20 min. It was a nice hike and there are several trails that come off the one to the tower. If you live in K'town, it's worth the trip, but I wouldn't drive far just for this.

Well there not really much to do here rather than shopping and eating vs different malls I've been into to that have cinemas or even a bowling place. Considering it's the only big thing on Kaiserslautern you tend to find not that many people as well

Der Kaiserbrunnen

Reviewed By EvaF2Eva - Kaiserslautern, Germany

Kaiserbrunnen is one of the most beautiful Fountains in Kaiserslautern. Although it is a modern art it fits to surrounding historical buildings and it is a nice place to relax on one of many benches around it (if you are lucky to find a vacant place).
It is always a lot of fun to discover small details and guess its meaning.

Wildpark Betzenberg

Reviewed By EvaF2Eva - Kaiserslautern, Germany

Place where the park is located is a beautiful forest on the outskirts of Kaiserslautern and walking there is enjoyable itself, especially in autumn when leaves change colour. Animals are obviously used to people and often come very close expecting something to eat or just being curious. It is a good place to spend a nice Sunday's afternoon.

Stiftskirche

Reviewed By Kevin B - Sweden

Still a working church, and while the building is huge and basically one giant Cathedral, they work hard to connect with the locals and the youth in particular.
There are fliers posted all over with various youth events the church is taking part in, from evangelism, Concerts, working with the needy and outreach trips. So it's great to see that the community of believers in this church is still alive and remaining relevant!
The congregation traces their history back to the year 800, which means they have met for over 1,200 years! Pretty awesome that a legacy can stretch for so long and remain relevant.
As for the building it is huge, gothic, imposing, beautiful and yet plain all at the same time. Not ornate like many cathedrals, yet functional and beautiful in it's plainness. It feels right and comforting, rather than ostentatious.
The Christmas market, called Weihnachtsmarkt Kaiserslautern, was ongoing and surrounding the church. So was a really nice time to visit. People had a fire just outside and were sharing warm cider and Glühwein (German Mulled Wine), which was inviting, as well as the many booths of freshly baked pastries and crafts.

Volkspark

Reviewed By EvaF2Eva - Kaiserslautern, Germany

It is not a big park and it is usually quite crowded, but I like to go there, when I need to escape from the city, see a bit of greenery and breathe fresh air, but don't want to drive far. I enjoy watching water birds at the small lake close to the entrance.
