Schloss Karlsruhe

Schloss Karlsruhe

Karlsruhe’s Baroque palace forms the centre of the city’s fan-like pattern, from which boulevards extend like the spokes of a wheel. Formerly home to the blue-blooded leaders of Karlsruhe, the palace now houses the Badische Landesmuseum, which exhibits regional artefacts – from prehistoric to present times.

Palace Gardens

After your visit to the museum, go for a stroll in the palace’s sweeping gardens to see the exotic trees royals planted here, as well as many statues from all epochs. On warm days you’ll find plenty of Karlsruhe’s inhabitants sharing picnics on the grass, playing badminton or going for walks.

Market Place

Market Place

Just steps from the palace, see the early 19th-century market place. In the centre stands the main symbol of Karlsruhe, a brick pyramid that protects Margrave Karl Wilhelm’s crypt. The stone sarcophagus containing the ashes of Karl Wilhelm is still inside the pyramid, but it is not open to the public.
