Had a lovely evening walking around the town, they were building the skating rink in front of the castle and getting ready for the Christmas markets, it was nice but will be really great when the Christmas markets are setup

In my personal opinion, Stuttgart and Karlsruhe are 2 German cities that do not have many attractions. If you think about Karlsruhe, then one of a few attractions worth a visit is Karlsruhe palace.

The palace and the surroundings are a must-visit when touring the city. The park around the palace has something interesting for everyone. People of all ages can spend time taking memorable moments back home. The train is worth getting on for a trip.

The Palace at Karlsruhe is the hub of the town and very easy to find with a map or even on foot from the town centre. Just ask any one. However, the grounds and garden are a little disappointing and could be better maintained. Worth...More
