One of Germany's first truly "planned" cities, Karlsruhe is naturally a center for technological development and important national institutions. Its industry and 18th-century architecture suffered during World War II, but much of its historic charm has been painstakingly restored. Thanks to its role as the home to Germany's highest federal courts, Karlsruhe is sometimes unfairly regarded as a city full of civil servants. However, its forward-thinking, cosmopolitan attitudes have created a vibrant cultural center. In fact, Karlsruhe is now seen as one of Germany's urban hubs, complete with fine dining, a booming tech industry, museums, and a tradition of wild nightlife. Karlsruhe is in Baden-Wurttemberg. Explore the family-friendly attractions of Karlsruhe and add them to your vacation plans using our Germany driving holiday planner.
