About Karlsruhe

When your bus arrives to Karlsruhe, you might be a little bit surprised as Karlsruhe is one of the few German cities that does not have a medieval district. But this is one of its elements that makes Karlsruhe a refreshing city with a unique character. The city therefore steers far away from any medieval sagas; instead you can experience a rich, cultural way of life filled with many theaters and open-air concerts, countless exhibitions and street-festivals. Regardless of why you have chosen to take your bus to Karlsruhe, you can relax knowing that FlixBus will get you from A to B no problem at all.

Places of Interest in Karlsruhe

From the “Residenzschloss,” there are 32 different streets and roads which radiate throughout Karlsruhe, creating almost a fan like image full of countless opportunities. For our bus passengers who want to see this unique baroque structure in its entirety, then a trip to the top of the castle tower is definitely recommended. In the “Residenzschloss” you will find the Baden State Museum which is the largest museum of cultural history in Baden-Wuerttemberg, a museum worth visiting when your bus arrives to Karlsruhe. Two of the most important courts in Germany are located in Karlsruhe’s city area – the federal Constitutional Court and the Supreme Court. The building of the Supreme Court is definitely worth a visit and will inspire lovers of classical architecture. The court is located in Erzgrossherzoglichen Palais and thus reflects the architectural style of the late 19th Century in a grandiose manner. While Karlsruhe’s city center offers an impressive shopping district and countless dinning opportunities, the wide variety of museums also invites those wanting to explore cultural aspects to depart with their money. The center of art and media technology, (ZKM for short), is one of the most well-known media centers in Germany. The striking building is not only the Museum of Contemporary Art but also the cities most impressive gallery. A unique metropolis city fits with this fancy, exotic landmark in an intriguing way. But there is no end to this city, in the middle of the neoclassic market square you can visit the new town hall or the city's evangelical church and dine in one of the many restaurants, all perched in view of a large stone pyramid. This monument was erected in 1823 and commemorates the father of the city, Markgraf Karl Wilhelm, who is buried here.

Culture and History of Karlsruhe

If it wasn’t for the late Karl-Wilhelm having lived in the 18th Century, then a bus journey to Karlsruhe today would lead our bus passengers to the Hardt forest. The Margrave of Baden-Durlach built his new residence in this forest in 1715. But why? According to legend, he was asleep during a hunting horseback ride and he had a dream about a magnificent castle. The dream soon became reality, a reality that you can see as soon as your bus arrives to Karlsruhe’s main station.
