"Hirschbrücke" Top 5 Page for this destination Karlsruhe Off The Beaten Path Tip by Kathrin_E

Karlsruhe Off The Beaten Path: 75 reviews and 191 photos

The 19th century quarter around Hirschbrücke has got a little bit of Parisian flair to me. The iron construction was built in 1889-1891. The bridge once crossed railway tracks leading to the former central station, which was located at Ettlinger Tor on the site where the new theater now is standing. The railway was moved further South - luckily, imagine steam trains polluting this living quarter. Today the trams 2 and 5 use the tracks underneath the bridge.

Where? Südweststadt, Hirschstraße - Jollystraße.
