🏝️ Zu Karlsruhe
Karlsruhe is not the largest or most exciting city in southern Germany, but it is perfectly situated for excursions to France, the Black Forest or the Palatinate. The former electoral city has two focal points in the city centre: Karlsruhe Castle with the adjacent castle park, and the nearby university, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. With a further 7 colleges and universities and a total of 40,000 students, the student scene strongly characterises the cityscape.
Karlsruhe has not yet been very popular for tourism, mainly because the city’s short past (the city has only been around for 300 years) means that it has little history and no typical historic old town. However, this does not mean that Karlsruhe is not well suited for both cultural and nature holidays.
