The small town of Ettlingen is situated a few kms from Karlsruhe up the little river Alb and can easily be visited from there as a day or half day trip. Ettlingen is, in fact, at least 1500 years older than Karlsruhe (mentioned first in788 A.D., but based on an ancient Roman settlement).
Ettlingen has preserved the charm of its historical centre in spite of rehabilitation measures in the 1970s that have destroyed quite a number of old buildings. What is left, however, is well taken care of. The major monuments and preserved houses are mostly baroque. Stroll round the town center - Etllingen is small, so everything can easily be reached on foot -, discover romantic spots in the narrow lanes, along the river and in the squares, and rest in one of the many outdoor cafes.
