With rock, soul or blues, Japanese cuisine or Palatinate specialties, high-quality leather goods or individual jewellery — there will be somthing for everyone. Approximately 150,000 visitors enjoy this colorful mixture of entertainment, culture and delicacies every summer in the old city center of Kaiserslautern.
