Spend the day with the USO and learn a few things about Kaiserslautern you may not know! We will share the local legends with you and give you a historical overview of the city with plenty of photo opportunities. We’ll give you lots of practical information and teach you some local German customs. Explore the farmer’s market and enjoy lunch or shopping in the city during your free time.
On this month’s orientation, you will have the opportunity to experience the city during the beautiful fall season. Not only will we visit the city market with its array of seasonal offerings, but we’ll also take in the Kaiserslautern Garden Show. Each September and October, the Garden Show area turns in to a huge pumpkin art exhibit! World-renowned landscape artists have created over ten colorful displays with thousands of pumpkins. Let this year’s theme “Circus” surprise you with over-sized animal figures and circus themes. Come take a look at their creativity. If you plan to shop downtown, we recommend you bring VAT forms, since most merchants accept them. Our instructor will point out historical sites and can suggest fun and interesting things to do for you and your family! Come and see what we have in store for you!
