New Years above Kaiserslautern
New Years above Kaiserslautern Reviews
Great View of all the Fireworks! Jan 21, 2014
Almost everyone celebrates New Years Eve. Kaiserslautern is no different, especially since fireworks are legal. For two years now I have held a party in the walk platz area and have been in the midst of many people lighting off fireworks.
For 2013/2014 my friend invited to walk to the Homburgturm, a stone tower in forest that over looks Kaiserslautern and the surrounding area. She told that people hike up there usually with torches (tiki torches!) and drink to celebrate.
From this location you can see a lot of city and if you are lucky enough you can get a spot on at the top of tower (come early though if want that spot). The three of us where lucky enough to get a spot in the front of the base of the tower to see the city.
Be prepared when coming for this, dress warm, bring some Gluhwein (spiced hot wine), hot chocolate and do not forget the celebratory drink Champagne! To toast the New Year!!
