  Karlsruhe Palace
by tini58de

The palace garden was designed during the reign of Karl Wilhelm between 1731 - 1746.

Karl Wilhelm had acquired his knowledge of flower breeding in Holland and passionately devoted himself to his hobby in the royal residence. (Well, and of course there are many rumours about the Dutch ladies helping him in the garden....)

The garden was redesigned a couple of times and in 1967 the palace park became the venue for the Federal Garden Show.

Nowadays, on beautiful summer days you will see a lot of people in the garden, sunbathing, playing ball or just having a picknick! There is plenty to keep children occupied, too, such as the huge adventure playground and a miniature railway that steams through the palace garden.
