Karlsruhe - The fan-shaped city

From the Baden residence to the center of the technology region.

Karlsruhe has many faces and, with over 300 years, looks back on a rather young city history. The quality of life is high, this place is booming. With 313,000 inhabitants, Karlsruhe is a city that can be described as a "think tank with a great lifestyle".

Founded in 1715 as a baroque Plan city, Karlsruhe was the capital and residence city of the former state of Baden. Characteristic of the original city plan are the 32 streets radiating all around from the castle into the parks and the Hardtwald forest of the "Oberrheinebene".

Karlsruhe owes its nickname "fan-shaped city" to its fan-shaped ground plan.
