Established in the years 1823-1825 over the vault of the city’s founder, Margrave Charles III William (1679-1738), the Karlsruhe Pyramid is regarded as the city’s second emblem. The pyramid’s architecture is an example of the ancient Egyptian revival architecture, which stands unaffected by the extensive bombings during the WWII. It is believed that ‘Karl’, the founder of Karlsruhe (meaning Karl’s rest), rests underneath this pyramid for eternity. Give this place a visit during the night hours to witness a bit of Egyptian beauty in the heart of Germany.
