Karlsruhe is a city in southwestern Germany in the Federal State of Baden-Wuerttemberg, located in the northern part of the Black Forest in the vicinity of the Rhine. The city is relatively young, as it was founded in the first half of the 18th century by Margrave Carl Wilhelm. The founder of the city left his mark not only in the name of the city, but also in its unusual buildings. The margrave expressed the wish that all the main streets of his city would be radially directed to the sides from the central baroque palace.

In addition to the main palace and museums, the sights of the city include numerous architectural ensembles of various eras, for example, the Gottesaue Palace, which houses the Karlsruhe's University of Music, the Prince Max Palace, which currently houses the City Museum, and the Grand Ducal Palace, which houses the Federal Court of Justice. In the ​​Durlach district, it is interesting to visit Karlsburg Castle and the ruins of the Fortress on Turmberg Hill. Various city districts offer numerous churches, the most famous of which are the Church of Christ, the St. Stephen Church, and the Gospel Church. Special attention should also be given to Maulbronn, the oldest Cistercian medieval abbey in Germany, which is ranked in the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites.

One of the most famous city squares in Karlsruhe is Ludwigsplatz. It is located in the western part of the historic center. Here one can find numerous bars, restaurants and cafes, which attract many visitors. In addition, the Market Square with a pyramid, a church, a city hall and a fountain also enjoys popularity.

Among the numerous green areas of the city, of particular interest is the Guenther Klotz Park. It is located along the Alb River, which is the venue for the popular Das Fest music festival.
