Kusel

4.5
Kusel, until 1865 written Cusel, is a town in the Kusel district in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. It is the seat of the like-named Verbandsgemeinde and is also the district seat.The well-known operatic tenor Fritz Wunderlich was born in Kusel, and footballer Miroslav Klose spent part of his childhood here.GeographyLocationKusel lies on the Kuselbach in Rhineland-Palatinate’s southwest, in the North Palatine Uplands roughly 30 km northwest of Kaiserslautern. The Kuselbach rises in the outlying centre of Diedelkopf where the Bledesbach and the Pfeffelbach (or Aalbach) meet. The dale is hemmed in by a row of mountains, on the left bank the Ödesberg (375 m), and on the right the Gaisberg (355 m), the Roßberg (314 m) and the Herrchenberg (385 m). The floor of the dale lies roughly 220 m above sea level. Prominent landmarks just beyond the town’s limits are Castle Lichtenberg to the west and the Remigiusberg and the Potzberg to the east. With roughly 5,000 inhabitants, Kusel challenges Cochem for the title of Germany’s smallest district seat.Neighbouring municipalitiesKusel borders in the north on the municipalities of Körborn and Blaubach, in the northeast on the municipality of Altenglan, in the east on the municipality of Rammelsbach, in the southeast on the municipality of Haschbach am Remigiusberg, in the south on the municipality of Schellweiler, in the southwest on the municipality of Ehweiler, in the west on the municipality of Pfeffelbach and in the northwest on the municipality of Ruthweiler.
