Culture & Shopping


Culture and city experience with a very special flair

City scape like a fan

Why this comparison? A Legend tells that Margrave Karl Wilhelm von Baden-Durlach fell asleep during a hunting break in the Hardtwald forest around 1715. He dreamed of founding a town in the shape of a fan. And it was precisely at the spot where he had rested that he had the center of his new residential town built: the palace. 32 streets and paths were to radiate from the palace like a fan and form the city center.

You should not miss these sights when you are in Karlsruhe:

For shopping, the Kaiserstraße, a well-known shopping boulevard, joins beautiful fan-shaped streets and special trendy streets in the city.

There is something for everyone in Karlsruhe!
