Karlsruhe Off The Beaten Path: 74 reviews and 190 photos
For those who are interested in postmodern/contemporary architecture: The State Library building by Oswald Mathias Ungers (1984-1991).
The main reading hall is covered by a huge dome that recalls the one of next-door classicist St. Stephan's Church by Friedrich Weinbrenner (which recalls the Pantheon in Rome).
The view of the hall is most impressive from the inner windows in the magazines on 2nd and 3rd floor.
If you want to visit the main reading hall (Hauptlesesaal) and the magazines, leave your bags and jackets in a locker or at the desk.
Erbprinzenstr. 15, next to St. Stephan's church and Friedrichsplatz.
