    Gästehaus am Karlstor


    This guesthouse at the edge of the inner city is located within walking distance to the major attractions, the shopping area and the convention center.

    Directions: The guesthouse is at the corner of Karlstrasse and Kriegsstrasse (one of Karlsruhes busiest roads - so ask for a quiet room at the backside). Tram station 'Karlstor' is just a few steps away. It can be reached by tram lines 2, 4 and 6.

e mail them.

I seem to remember that they wait for the passengers from the last flight before they leave. I may of course be utterly wrong.

Travel Tips for Karlsruhe


by DAO

I really don’t know what Catnl and Suet said to these young lads, but they jumped up in masse and began to gyrate their everything all over the dance floor. Weird thing was there wasn’t actually a dance floor – just a bar. Well, they drove the young local boys crazy and they twisted and swivelled for quite some time.

Please note: The rest of the story is for sell to the highest bidder. Please list your bid in the comments section below.

I would go to the Fresh...

by BluecatCanoe

I would go to the Fresh Market every Wednesday and get fresh food from the Pfalz region, wine, flowers, and pastry from other areas. I borrowed this picture from the web. I walked in front of this building pass the church, the orange bricks in foreground, to the fresh market that was in front of this church. Just walking the streets to the schloss and meeting new people at Ludwig Platz and the Krokodil.

Free Internet Access at the Municipal Library

by Bernd_L

If you want to check your e-mail or look up some tips from VT during your stay at Karlsruhe there's no cheaper way than visiting the Municipal Library.

They have several computers available for public use. The access is limited up to half an hour and free of charge unless you want to have print-outs.

Art nouveau / Jugendstil architecture in Karlsruhe

by Kathrin_E

Those who like Jugendstil/art nouveau architecture will find a lot to see in Karlsruhe. Since large late 19th and early 20th century quarters outside the city centre have survived the war relatively unharmed, one discovers buildings from this period at almost every street corner in those areas. Some good architects, like Hermann Billing and Curjel & Moser, had their studios in Karlsruhe and have left us their masterpieces here.

I have already written several tips on singular buildings and works of art (and will continue to do so), but for a general overview here's a list:

Where to find Jugendstil architecture in Karlsruhe?

1. the Hauptbahnhof / central station

2. Oststadt:
Lutherkirche (see tip). The church and the houses of the adjacent street were planned as an ensemble.

3. City centre:
Hofapotheke / court pharmacy, Kaiserstraße corner Waldstraße (photo)
Oberkirchenrat / church administration, Blumenstraße
several buildings along Amalienstraße
Fountain on Stephansplatz (see tip)

4. around Mühlburger Tor:
Christuskirche (neo-gothic with Jugendstil ornaments, see tip)
Baischstraße off Kaiserplatz (see tip)

5. Weststadt
A lot of villas and condos in all the streets around Gutenbergplatz, Sophienstraße, Weinbrennerstraße, Western part of Kriegsstraße, Eisenlohrstraße (see pictures in travelogue).
Take a tram to Yorckstraße and work your way South through the streets, or takte the tram 5 and get off at Weinbrennerplatz or Hübschstraße.

6. Musikerviertel
Between Weststadt and Mühlburg, North of Kaiserstraße. One of the best and prettiest (read: most expensive) living quarters in town with Jugendstil and late 19th century villas.

7. Südweststadt
Late 19th century quarter with occasional Jugendstil buildings

8. Museum am Markt
The Museum am Markt, which is part of the Badisches Landesmuseum (but not located in the Schloss), shows a fine collection of Jugenstil arts and crafts.
Location: Marktstraße, the street leading from Marktplatz towards the Schloss.

Daytrips from the city.

by Maurizioago

You can easily do some daytrips from Karlsruhe by tram or by train.

You could visit Ettlingen; a beautiful small town only some kilometers from Karlsruhe (see my Ettlingen page...) and Baden Baden. This spa town is not far from Karlsruhe. It has a couple of spa estabilishments; a building where you can taste the medicinal water (Trinkhalle) and a nice old core.

Another beautiful town worth a visit is Heidelberg. It is home of the oldest university in Germany. Its highlight is the castle.
