  Karlsruhe Welcome card (3-day transportation card)

For my 3-day stay I bought the Karlsruhe Welcome Card for € 9,50. There is a dense tram system in Karlsruhe and although the city isn't that large, it saves a lot of time to do stretches with the tram.

The Welcome Card gives free and unlimited transportation for local train, bus, and tram. The card is valid for 3 days. Additionally you get a voucher booklet. Now here's where it becomes interesting... The booklet contains 24 vouchers, which give discounts on museum entry and freebies like an espresso at Brasserie Weinbrenner, a free ride on the Standseilbahn in Durlach, free entrance to the Prinz-Max-Palais museum, and 1 free beer at both the Badisch Brauhaus and Hoepfner Burghof.

A day card for transportation (inner city) costs € 4,50 (without voucher booklet). The same card, but for up to 5 persons, costs € 6,80.
A one-ride ticket costs € 2 (2 zones). So you see, the Welcome Card is worth the expense.

Note: Remember to validate your ticket in the tram when you enter!

I bought it at the KVV Kundenzentrum, just outside the main station (Hauptbahnhof).
Each tram station (as far as I could see) also has a ticket machine that takes coins.
