Karlsruhe Palace - Review

The Karlsruhe palace, built in 1715 by Margrave Charles III William of Baden-Durlach, has served as the residence and seat of the government of the Baden dynasty for 200 hundred years. Since it came into existence this palace has witnessed numerous renovations as it stands at the hub of 32 avenues radiating outwards symmetrically to form Karlsruhe's iconic layout, the so-called "Fächer", or fan. This Palace turned museum, is one of the most active cultural history museums in Germany and has well-maintained beautiful gardens spreading over a large area in the backyard. Sitting on the banks besides the immaculate gardens during early spring or late autumn will fill you with a sense of peace and serenity. Highlights and must sees include:

  • Ancient jewellery, crockery and statues collection
  • Climbing the stairs to the top of the tower to catch the stunning view of the city
  • Walking around the catwalk
  • Chinese tea huts

Karlsruhe Palace, Karlsruhe Reviews

  • Lovely place to visit on a beautiful day. The collections in their museum are superb. I was surprised after a week in Munich visiting many museums that they made me check my purse and gave me a clear plastic shopping bag for anything I wanted to carry with me during my visit. Also the rooms inside were unbearably warm with no ventilation. Outside it was a cool, clear, breezy day. I will return in the winter to see how they handle cold weather. Great collection though!!

  • A nice garden. The palace itself is beautiful from the outside. Didn't have enough time to visit inside. Interesting exhibitions (judging by the advertisments in front of the building).

  • A great collection of very old art. Extremely well preserved. Not overcrowded. We took a lot of pictures (no flash) The personal is very polite.

  • We stopped here on Father's Day when my daughter and her husband were visiting Germany. We all thought it was pretty neat that we were in Karlsruhe on Father's Day since it's where my son-in-law'sfather was born!!! The palace and gardens are truly wonderful!!!

  • Nice castle and grounds to wander through. Bit disappointed with the botanical gardens. Not much on display.
