Where does the name Karlsruhe come from?

According to folklore, Margrave Karl III. Wilhelm von Baden-Durlach wanted to expand his castle in the then solitary town of Durlach and tried to “beautify” the town. His plan was to straighten the winding streets, but the inhabitants were not enthusiastic about it and did not give him the necessary land. In order to calm down, Karl went hunting in the Hardtwald. Exhausted from the hunt, he lay down on a tree and fell asleep. In his sleep, he dreamt of a castle with streets leading into the city like rays of sunshine. He was so enthusiastic about this, that in 1715 he had the first stone laid and named the city Karlsruhe (which means Karl’s rest in German). The arrangement of the streets leading from Karlsruhe Castle into the city is reminiscent of a fan, which is why Karlsruhe is also called Fan City.

Karlsruhe Town Center

The city center of Karlsruhe is divided in a two-part circle: Downtown West and Downtown East. Here is the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, which attracts many students every year, and the Baroque Karlsruhe Castle, which was built in 1715. The old botanical garden and the nymph garden can be found in the surrounding castle garden to the west. On the eastern side, the Pheasant Garden with its Chinese tea houses is worth a visit. From March to November, a railway, the Schlossgartenbahn, runs through the castle garden.

Durlach is home to the Karlsburg Castle, built by Margrave Karl III. Wilhelm von Baden-Durlach. Before he founded Karlsruhe and had it built in 1715, he lived here. Up until 1938, Durlach was a town in its own right but was then incorporated into Karlsruhe. The historic city center, with its winding alleys, is a great place to live. Another highlight in Durlach is the Turmberg, from whose panoramic terrace one gets a view over the whole of Karlsruhe. If you don’t want to climb 592 steps up to Turmberg, you can use Germany’s oldest mountain cable car. The Turmbergbahn, which was opened in 1888, takes you directly up to Turmberg.
