To find our location, please take Autobahn 6 (A6) until the Kaiserslautern/West Pirmasens/Opel exit. Take the second exit from the exit ramp and it will merge onto the German Federal Highway B270 leading toward the base. Remain straight on this road as you drive underneath the A6 and the road merges from two lanes into one lane. Continue straight over the bridge. After the traffic light, turn right into the Vogelweh Gate. Stay on the main road after entering the gate and follow the priority road to the left. Make the first left turn into the parking lot at the Kapaun Post Office. Building 2784 is located directly across from the post office.
