    After the market in Bretten, we headed to the medieval market in Durlach and this one was a real treat. They sold the usual hot drinks and snacks and they had a live band and people dressed and speaking German the way they did during the medieval times. We found some (to us) unusual things like these potato snacks that are unrolled on a stick and...

  • Pyramid

    Karlsruhe Things to Do

    So in the main Marktplatz, a guy puts a pyramid. Not all that big. I had expected bigger after checking it out on google maps. It doesn't really fit in with anything, unless you sort of tie it out to the roads leading to/from the palace. I will have to dig up a little more dirt on the subject.

It's a pity. Sorry Almost 20% of...

    The perception of size is cleverly manipulated in the castle's wine cellar: you descend the stairs and voila! You see a large wine barrel to your right. "Surely, this must be it?" you ask. No, THIS was just the little one that "only" holds 45,000 lites. DAS GROSSE FASS (Vat / Tun): This beauty can hold 221,726 litres (approx. 55,000 gallons) of...
