Discover Karlsruhe’s fascinating attractions

Karlsruhe – a city of around 300,000 inhabitants in western Baden-Württemberg – has many sites its visitors will want to see. Most start their tour at the Karlsruhe Palace, a magnificent baroque castle built as a residence and seat of government for the Baden Margraves. Not only does this building feature impressive architecture, its iconic presence defines the entire city. Many of Karlsruhe’s streets lead directly to the palace, so it is easy to see from almost anywhere in the city centre. The surrounding Schlosspark is an inviting green space that encourages visitors to spend some pleasant time in the open air. The city also has other castles, palaces and churches, which are well worth a visit.

Things to see in the local area

Situated on the banks of the Rhine, Karlsruhe lies within an exceptionally warm region. Here, the annual temperature averages 10.5 °C, making this one of Germany’s warmest cities. The weather can be especially hot in July when the average maximum temperature reaches 25.5 °C. One advantage of this warm climate is that holidaymakers find it very pleasant to spend lots of time outdoors, enjoying city life in an almost Mediterranean way. So it’s no surprise that a walk through the vineyards on the banks of the Rhine is a popular leisure activity, and there are many hiking trails linking Karlsruhe to the nearby Black Forest region. Besides the city itself, it’s partly the surrounding area that makes Karlsruhe such an interesting destination. The spa town of Baden-Baden, which is close by, features refined villas, luxurious hotels, thermal baths and the timeless atmosphere you would expect to find in a fashionable 19th-century resort. Indeed the town’s name (Baden – ‘bath’) refers to its exclusive status as a spa town.
