Window to Rheinland-Pfalz

The printed version of the 2018 English calendar of events for the Ramstein and Kaiserslautern area is now available at the “Window to Rheinland-Pfalz” information counter at the KMCC on Ramstein Air Base and at the Ramstein town hall.

Since 2011, 15,000 copies of the booklet are published each year by the “Window to Rheinland-Pfalz” as a joint venture with several neighboring communities. The event calendar is a popular source of information for American military members and their families to find out what is going on throughout the year in the local area. It is distributed free of charge.

On 28 pages the booklet lists more than 115 local events accompanied by a variety of pictures. The calendar provides a monthly overview of city and village festivals, fairs, markets, concerts and shows including short descriptions of the events in English. It depicts a choice of offers that the local tourism representatives consider particularly interesting for English-speaking visitors.


The calendar covers the most important events in the Ramstein and Kaiserslautern area, the union community of Landstuhl and Bruchmuehlbach-Miesau, the holiday region Lake Ohmbach/Glantal and the Donnersberg region throughout the year 2018. A map of the area was included to help locate the venues.

The dates of bike event days, volksmarches and culinary hikes as well as medieval markets or Christmas markets are listed. People interested in cultural events will find something to awaken their interest, so do sports enthusiasts or families with children.

A download version of the calendar is available on the website www.ramstein-gateway.com. By clicking the tab “Events” you will find updated information of what is going on in the region within the next days as well as an overview list of the local events throughout the year 2018.

Google Maps was embedded in the layout to make it easier for you to find your way to the event locations. You will find icons to share the information on Facebook, Twitter and Google+. You also have the option to export the event dates that sound interesting to you to your personal calendar.

The “Window to Rheinland-Pfalz” team will be happy to assist you with information about the local area and to provide you your personal copy of the calendar of events. Just stop by at the counter during your next visit at the KMCC. The information counter is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays.
