  • The castle is really the center of Karlsruhe. The Park is beautiful and old train running through it makes it even more special. In the evening, in August and early September, the play of light projected onto the front of the building are just terrific and collect hundreds of people in an atmosphere of collective celebration.

  • as normal, germany is not tourist oriented. descriptions only in german, nothing special! nice to see only if you have free time!  more »
  • Yesterday we visited the evening lighting of the Castle at the end of our stay in Karlsruhe. Wednesday night the crowd was not too large and so we could choose front places us back, middle or also. We opted for a middle distance, so that you have the whole Castle in sight. We looked at 4 different installations - certainly technically connected to great expense. The personal assessment of vital importance, what order are the pieces is then in turn of the displayed pieces. Overall, I found the projection on the Castle already very successful – only the music for my taste is too soft in the middle and rear area. I had recently seen a similar show on the Strasbourg Cathedral; Here everything seems slightly different, because the locations are yet different.

  • Great museum!! Lets people really come in touch with the badish culture and also covers culture from other parts of Germany and the ancient ones: Egyptians and Romans for ex. All I miss is seeing something of the original structure of the palace 😎👍
  • nice looking palace with a great garden for long walks. The Ramses exhibition was not that great though. We unfortunately did not visit any of the other exhibitions.
  • Looks very beautiful. It's the center of the fan city (If you look at the streets going away from it, you'll see that they make a fan shape)
  • Fantastic museum featuring very well-preserved artifacts from even ancient times. Collection is quite large, so if you go make sure to plan to spend at least half a day there. If history and cultural artifacts are your thing, plan to spend a lot more time! If you are in acceptably good condition, the climb to the top of the palace tower provides good views of Karlsruhe and is well worth the slightly higher entrance fee than the museum alone.
  • A nice cozy place for refreshment. Night brings more beauty to the castle.
