Karlsruhe - become a fan of Benz’s birth city

Karlsruhe, a 18th century german city near the french border

Built around an 18th-century palace, Karlsruhe has blossomed into a thriving university city in the Black Forest. Climb Karlsruhe Palace’s tower to see how the streets fan out from the palace gardens like bicycle spokes, giving the city its nickname Fan City.

About Germany

The most famous place in Karlsruhe is the Pyramid’s Market. The amazing pyramid erected in 1823 is a symbol of the town and houses the gravestone of the count who founded Karlsruhe in 1715, Karl Wilhelm of Baden-Durlach.

Don’t leave the square without visiting the Protestant Church built in the 19th century in the classical style. You will feel like discovering a Greek Temple! If you are a botany lover, you will be wowed by the Botanical Garden located in the castle garden, close to the Orangery.

Karlsruhe offers a very bustling night life: head for the famous Hoepfner brasserie and its "biergarten" (beer garden) for an evening to remember.
