    After taking a short funicular, but seems to be the oldest in Germany, you guunge to a square where you can enjoy a panorama over the city. Climbing to the adjacent tower (approximately 30 meters) you can have a broader vision. In addition to the panorama there is more substantial.

    To get there is by car (parking) feet (pleasant wood) either by the cable car (to get to the foot of the Tower). The panorama is worth the trip and you can make a nice idea of the region and the situation of the city of Karlsruhe.

    The Turmberg, Karlsruhe mountain above of Durlach offers even a super view great views over Karlsruhe, weather permitting. Up here there's gastronomy, a climbing park, a playground and a railway to the up and come down. The sports school Schöneck is also here. Certainly worth a trip. Tip: Run the stairs in high then you also realise that it is on a mountain. Down then again with the mountain railway, an old funicular.
