Prepare for an exciting day, full of sightseeing in Paris, the City of Light!

Enjoy the view from the viewing platform of the Eiffel Tower or the rooftop terrace Tour Montparnasse (the only place in Paris where you can’t see the ugliest building in town), ride the RER to Versailles, take the “secret” back entrance into the Lourve and skip the line to see the Mona Lisa. With no tour guide to follow or pre-planned sight-seeing schedule to adhere to, you are free to explore the “most romantic city in the world” however you wish.

If you asked 50 different people to describe the best way to spend a day in Paris, you would get 50 different answers. Don’t settle for someone else’s pre-packaged day in Paris seeing what they want you to see. When you download a free e-travelguide for your phone or tablet from Army Libraries you can make your trip to Paris your own.

COVID Precautions (Current as of 1 October 2021.  May be superseded by Local/State/Federal level laws): 

  • Out of an abundance of caution, and to minimize the risk of a passenger being forced off a trip while crossing an international border, Kaiserslautern Outdoor Recreation is currently restricting international travel to fully vaccinated and fully recovered passengers and children under the minimum age for testing/quarantine.  Minimum age for testing/quarantine is determined by the individual countries and may be lower than the German minimum age of 12.
  • All passengers to France are required to have an EU Digital Covid Certificate to gain entry to virtually all indoor facilities, including restaurants, monuments and museums.  A CDC card is acceptable to cross the border, but is not compatible with the French Health Pass plan.  
  • In the event that an individual passenger is not able to participate in a confirmed trip due to COVID restrictions placed on the passenger, full cancellation penalties may be applied based on the date of the customer's cancellation.
  • All participants are required to be in compliance with the rules for their destination and all countries of transit as listed in the Travel Planner on at the time of departure. For travel remaining in Germany only, all passengers are required to be in compliance with all local laws in both Rheinland-Pfalz and the destination of travel.
  • All Travel/COVID Documentation is the responsibility of the passenger.
  • PCR and RAT (Rapid Antigen Tests) are the only approved testing methods. Self tests are not authorized for international travel.
  • No refunds will be offered to passengers who are denied boarding or are removed from a trip for failure to follow COVID procedures.  
  • Trip timelines and schedule and COVID precautions are subject to change at any time.
  • All trips are departing from the Pulaski Sports Pavilion in Pulaski Park until further notice.
  • Dependent on current COVID status at the time of departure, masks covering your nose and mouth may be required on any trip. 
  • Hands must be sanitized before boarding ODR vehicles.
  • Enter and exit through the rear door only.
  • Seats may be assigned by ODR in advance to promote physical distancing and contact tracing. Requests for specific seats are not being accepted.
