Sites Within Two Hours of Ramstein
The sites below are within two hours (one way) driving time from the KMC area.
All these sites may be visited in a one day trip, remembering that weather and
traffic may lengthen the driving time and that winter daylight hours are short.  In
addition, roads in some areas are narrow and curvy and may take more time than
is evident based on the mileage.
Feel free to contact us if you need help planning
a trip while the self-guided tour pages are under construction.
