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 - Write a Review

  • Had a chance to visit it during the summer. Great place to sit around the park and have a nice time. There's stream of water flowing in between the park (Saw a couple dancing on it barefoot). Kids were also enjoying playing with the water.

  • Walked here everyday with Charlie for the last six weeks. Favourite place to be! Restaurant in the Schloss garden is an excellent place to eat or just to have a coffee!

  • Ok. Nice to look at but not much inside and all the info is in German only. Worth a visit if you have time to kill.

  • Interesting collection, you get to see a little bit of everything: from the ancient Egyptians to the lifestyle of the German people during the Cold War. Also you can climb up to the tower and get a nice view of the city.

  • A very nice railway with a steam train around the palace on Sundays and public holidays. Costs around 4 euro and worth every penny
