City tour through Karlsruhe

Discover Karlsruhe with the great city experience tour

Karlsruhe has many faces. In its almost 300-year history, the former residence and planned city has developed into a center for art, culture, law and technology and is now home to the Federal Court of Justice, Germany's highest court, as well as a vibrant cultural landscape with over 50 museums, theaters and galleries.

Join us on a 130-minute tour of the fan-shaped city of Karlsruhe and learn more about the rather short history of the former royal seat. We will pass many of the city's highlights, including the palace, the ZKM, the old slaughterhouse and Durlach with its old town, the famous Turmbergbahn and Karlsburg Castle.

During the tour, you have the option of leaving the bus at one of our 9 stops, exploring the surrounding highlights on foot or visiting one of Karlsruhe's many museums and simply getting on the next bus - HopOn-HopOff makes it possible.
