Preparing your trip to Kaiserslautern: advices & hints - things to do and to obey

1. Don’t forget about general safety. Never leave personal belongings unattended. When heading to a guided tour, excursion, or a public place, it is better not to take valuables and large sums of money. If something is lost, the chance of getting your items back is not big.
2. Kaiserslautern is perfectly suitable for navigation by bicycle and other means of transport. Public transport works in strict accordance with the schedule, and taxi services will please vacationers. However, it may not be easy to drive a car in the center of the city. As old streets are narrow, there are almost no large parking lots in the center of Kaiserslautern. Traffic jams near universities and office buildings have become common on workdays. It is particularly problematic to drive a car on holidays.
3. It is a good idea to rent a car and explore the countryside. However, tourists need to be careful because it is easy to get lost. Because of that, it is always a good idea to plan the route carefully beforehand and always have a map at hand.
4. The local climate is mild and generally pleasant, but it is still better not to forget about sunscreen and a hat in summer and warm clothes in winter.
5. Excursions to the city’s neighborhoods and countryside are incredibly popular in the region, including a tour to Hohenecken Castle. These areas may have old and semi-destroyed cobblestone roads, so it is essential to have comfortable shoes if you plan to explore ruins and other interesting historic landmarks in Kaiserslautern.
