Kaiserslautern

The name of the town comes from the Holy Roman Emperor Barbarossa who built a castle or palace near the river Lauter in the 12th century. However, given this grand heritage it is slightly incongruous to note that the predominantly American NATO personnel stationed here refer to it as "K-Town" because they are too lazy to pronounce it fully. The stadium itself is named after the somewhat more recent hero of the 1954 World Cup campaign.
