The Hotel Atlantis is located near Landstuhl, a small Palatine town with less than 10,000 inhabitants. Nonetheless, Landstuhl is of supraregional importance, as it has been one of the US military’s most important medical facilities for more than 70 years, the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, or LRMC in short.
Landstuhl is a contemplative community that nestles picturesquely in the valley, which forms out of the Palatinate Forest and merges into the Sickinger height. The city looks back on a century-long history and is interesting not only because of its proximity to Kaiserslautern, but also through the now destroyed castle Nanstein. In addition, even finds from Roman times have been proven, so that a visit to Landstuhl from our Hotel Atlantis can be a trip well worth your time.
The Landstuhl Regional Medical Center is certainly one of the highlights that has made the city very well known nationwide. Equipped with the latest technologies and the best doctors, the American soldiers who are in service around the world are brought here for emergency treatment.
Once the first aid has been completed on site, the patients are transported to the LRMC via the Ramstein Air Base in Landstuhl and treated further at the LRMC. Only when the patients are stabilized, their transport to the USA is scheduled.
Due to its importance as a hub in the city of Landstuhl, but above all for the activities of the US military in Europe, the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center can look back on another interesting detail: In the past decades, the LRMC has repeatedly been the place where stars of the TV- or Musicindustry or even internationally renowned sport stars are born. A big thank you goes to the soldiers on site as well as to the specialized staff, who not only save human lives because of their tireless efforts, but also help new life pave it´s way.
The story of the LRMC and thus of Landstuhl itself lives on. If you are looking for a suitable hotel for your overnight stay in Landstuhl, feel free to contact us!
