*Discover* St. Wendel Easter Market

8:30 AM CEST ( 830B)


Each month the USO Kaiserslautern Discover program offers train orientations and classes that provide useful information about riding the trains in Germany. During the class, you will tour the train station and even practice using the ticket machine. Our instructor will share information about special offers, such as group and family tickets before we board the train to one of the many fascinating destinations in the local area! Train transportation and city orientation are included. Please bring money for lunch, shopping, snacks, refreshments, and entrance fees. Large strollers are not recommended for these trips.

Spring is in the air! Join us as we celebrate the season at one of the most popular Easter markets in the region. We’ll travel by train to St. Wendel, in the neighboring state of Saarland, to visit this well-known traditional event. The fountain on the palace square of this picturesque town is decorated with an impressive crown of 2,000 colored eggs offering a perfect backdrop for your souvenir photos. Approximately 80 booths fill the market square and are nestled around St. Wendel’s cathedral. The booths will offer traditional Easter or spring décor, unique arts and crafts, hand-painted eggs and home-made culinary delights. A small petting zoo and entertaining walking acts will add to this special experience.

Orientation Includes German rail orientation, train transportation, city tour of St. Wendel with a USO instructor.
