Palace - Schloss, Karlsruhe: 43 reviews and 100 photos
Built by margrave Karl Wilhelm in 1715 in the middle of a forest this palace was the starting point of the city of Karlsruhe. First it was meant as a manor for rest and relaxation for the margrave but later it became his residence and the political centre of the state of Baden. All streets of the early Karlsruhe radiated from the palace into all directions like sunbeams and the tower of the palace was in the centre. It is supposed that it was used as a sundial, because the spire casts its shadow every full hour onto another path.
Nowadays the palace is home of the Badische Landesmuseum which exhibits collections about local history, greek and roman art, the treasure chamber of the margraves of Baden and temporary exhibitions.
