Karlsruhe's baroque ground plan is a wheel with 32 radial streets. One third is covered by the town, the other two thirds by the park. Three centuries have added some changes, but the basic plan is still visible.
The best spot to see and understand this unique planning project is from its centre: the tower of the palace.

The tower can only be entered through the museum (see tip on Badisches Landesmuseum for details). There is no lift, you have to climb the stairs.
Opening hours: Tues-Thurs 10-17, Fri-Sun 10-18. Free entry on Fridays after 14.00.
