Karlsruhe Palace

Karlsruhe Palace

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

Market Square

Market Square

Just a few steps from Karlsruhe Palace, you can find the early 19th-century "Marktplatz". In the centre stands the main symbol of the city, 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. On one side of the square, you can see the Evangelical Church, built between 1807 and 1816 in a classical style by the architect Friedrich Weinbrenner. Its big bell tower is almost 62 meters high and was a personal request from grand duke Karl-Friedrich.
