The Baroque Karlsruhe Palace makes for an opulent centrepiece, with its famous avenues fanning out to form the layout of the entire city. It's also home to the Badische Landesmuseum, one of Germany's most important historical museums.
There are numerous manicured urban green spaces, including Luwigsplatz, Freidrichsplatz, Werderplatz and Marketpatz, which define the vibrant, cultural ambience of the city. For shopaholics, Ettlinger Tor is a dream come true of designer brands, souvenirs and quirky independent boutiques.
Beyond the city limits, a visit to the spa and casino town of Baden-Baden is a must, as well as hiking in the Black Forest and a cruise down the Rhine into the famous wine-making region.
