Karlsruhe - become a fan of Benz’s birth city Karlsruhe was founded in 1715 as Karlsruhe palace, when Germany was a series of principalities and city states. Gateway to the black forest and close to the Rhine, Karlsruhe was one of Europe’s first planned cities over 300 years ago. Its nickname “Fan-Shaped City” reflects the elegant design, with 32 streets radiating out from the palace like the rays of the sun. The town surrounding the palace became the seat of two of the highest courts in all of Germany, The Federal Constitutional Court and the Federal Court of Justice. Karlsruhe is considered the “house of justice” in all of Deutschland, a role taken over from Leipzig after 1945. Not to worry, the town isn’t teeming with criminal types. In fact, Karlsruhe is a relaxing sort of place, with some of the warmest weather in the entire country. Visitors enjoy more than 800 hectares of public parks and you’ll often see residents enjoying the sunshine or one of two beautiful botanic gardens. The municipal Botanischer Garten is part of the Palace complex, while the Botanischer Garten der Universitat is lovingly maintained by the local university. Learn more about Karlsruhe
