KAISERSLAUTERN aka K-TOWN / Germany/ my hometown

hello everybody,

today i wanna show you some pics of the city i live in since 2006.K-town is located in south-west germany, in the state Rheinland-Pfalz.It has a population of approx. 100.000. The city is known for its soccer team 1.FC Kaiserslautern, the technical university and the car industry (Opel).Rheinland-Pfalz is a big wine area and a paradise for hikers in the "Pfälzer wald" (forest).There's a river called "Lauter" , that's why the city is called Kaiserslautern, but the river has been layed underground long ago.Now enjoy the pictures!

Stifts- church


bank building


Frucht-hall


town hall tower


soccer stadium in the back






main station




a VW EOS


the Kaiser - fountain




the next pics will be of japanese garden, it is the biggest one in Europe

A casualty of the war? The modern buildings look pleasant enough and the historical buildings look great. One of my favourite stadiums as well.

Surprisingly, Kaiserslautern really looks nice in your pictures, although I had a much different impression of the city when I was there

I visited the K-Town area a few years ago when I lived in Italy and did not get around town very much except near the Ramstein Air Base. I regret not taking hardly any photos but I enjoyed looking at the ones posted on this thread.

thanks guys! I was in the "gartenschau" and the japanese garden this week.I took many pictures.When i am at my laptop again, I'll post them. I like k-town, though it seams very small in real life(night life isn't that spectatcular), compared to Heidelberg for example, which seams much more bigger with it's big river and the castle,though it hasn't much more population. The only times k-town seams bigger is when there's a soccer game in the stadium with 49500 seats.

Thanks for the pictures.

I became a Sechz'ger fan back in high school when I attended Gymnasium in Bayern (for those who don't know, probably because die Löwen have fallen on hard times, that's the 1860 München football team!). So naturally, I am also a supporter of 1. FC Kaiserslautern!
