    The Karlsruhe Palace was built from 1715 in the style of the Baroque as the residence of Margrave Karl Wilhelm of Baden-Durlach. It served until 1918 as a residence castle of the Margraves or Grand Dukes of Baden. Today, the building houses the Baden State Museum and part of the Federal Constitutional Court.

    The legend of the Karlsruhe Palace:
    Margrave Karl Wilhelm wanted to enlarge his castle in the capital Durlach. Citizens did not want to sell their plots of land needed for enlargement. One day Margrave Ludwig Wilhelm went hunting in Hardtwald. He got lost in the forest and eventually got tired
    under a tree, where he fell asleep exhausted and began to dream. In the dream he saw the plan of a new residential city with a fan-shaped road system. When he awoke, he said to himself: "I have not rested so well in my whole life! Here I want to build my new residence, which Karls-
    Rest is called! "Soon after, at this point, the new
    Residenzschloss and the city of Karlsruhe.

    Beautiful, magnificent castle, great castle garden with castle garden path, lake, lawns, fountains, café and several statues. Worth seeing are the annual Schlosslichtspiele.

    The Karlsruhe Palace is the center of the Karlsruher fan. In particular, north direction good bike paths. But always keep the fan in mind when navigating :-)Incidentally, the palace was built between 1715 and 1718 on behalf of Margrave Karl Wilhelm of Baden-Durlach. More here: front of the castle the city and behind it the park (which may be used) with adjoining forest and the state majolica ceramics manufactory with sale and "Cantina"

    Incidentally, the Karlsruhe Palace not only delights the inhabitants of the fan city.
    The tower of the Maryland State House in Annapolis, looks so similar to the tower of the Karlsruhe Palace that it is speculated that this is a replica.
