    Conveniently located opposite the train station, just across the square, the zoo is easy to reach. Karlsruhe's zoo is not one of the big famous ones in this country but still nice to see, especially with kids. Some animals have already got modern and roomy homes - the polar bears are the zoo's pride - while some others still inhabit smaller and...

    On a previous trip to Germany, I had come across a Peter Lenk Sculpture. I found it interesting and very different, understanding too, why his sculptures are controversial!

    When I was at the port, I noticed a brightly painted building which was named the Gredhaus. It was in such good condition, that I never would have guessed it was built in 1505, by Bishop Hugh of Hohenlandenberg, whose coat of arms and those of the town of Meersburg are located on the south side. The building was built as a place for storing grain...

    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...

  • 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 money factory

    Karlsruhe Things to Do

    This classical building is a very important institution, because they produce money - to be correct: only coins. The building was constructed by Karlsruhes famous son architect Friedrich Weinbrenner in 1826 to 1827. For obvious reasons you cannot simply go in and visit it unless you have an invitation for a guided tour. %

    Heidelberg Things to Do

    This building (now a hotel and restaurant) dates from 1592 making it one of Heidelberg's oldest treasures. Built in late German Renaissance style, its original owner was cloth dealer Carolus Belier.
