Karlsruhe is a beautiful German city in the federal state of Baden-Württemberg. It is located in the vicinity of the Rhine River, near the French border. This is a fairly young city founded by Margrave Charles Wilhelm in the first half of the 18th century. The Rhine Valley, in which the city lies, is the warmest and sunniest region in Germany. Karlsruhe is home to many administrative facilities, including the Federal Court of Justice of Germany and the German Federal Constitutional Court, so it is often called the city of officials.

A distinctive feature of Karlsruhe is the absence of a historical center with narrow winding streets. The heart of the city and its main attraction is the grandiose Baroque Karlsruhe Palace with a park. For two hundred years, the palace served as the main residence of the Margraves and Grand Dukes of Baden, while today it houses a Museum of History and Culture. Beautiful fountains, many statues in the Roman style, mighty immense trees along the alleys and much more awaits the tourist here. The palace is the beginning of 32 wide streets, which stretch in all directions in straight paths. The streets are connected by two ring roads. Thus, the bird's eye view of the city is fan-shaped.

Another attraction of the city is the Karlsruhe Pyramid, under which the founding father of the city, Margrave Charles Wilhelm, is buried. The historical monument is located in the very center of the Market Square. Not less interesting places are the Center for Art and Media, the State Art Gallery, the Gottesaue Palace and the Turmberg Hill. In addition, Karlsruhe has many impressive religious monuments, including the neo-Gothic Christ Church, the St. Stephen Church and Maulbronn – Germany's oldest Cistercian medieval monastery listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

After exploring the historical sights of the city, one can go for a walk to the Botanical Garden (one of the oldest in Europe) or just walk in numerous parks of the city. The Guenther Klotz Park on the banks of the Alb River is the most popular recreation area among both tourists and locals.
