Kaiserslautern - Fritz-Walter-Stadion
The Fritz-Walter-Stadion has been upgraded in preparation for the World Cup, but unlike the other 11 venues it has retained some of its character.
Capacity for the tournament is 43,000 in a stadium that has grown upon existing, steeply-banked stands over time since first opening in 1920.
FC Kaiserslautern's home is also known as Betzenberg, due to its location on Betzenberg Mountain.
It will welcome four group games before hosting the fifth second-round match.
