The Karlsruhe Palace is the center of the Karlsruhe fan. The palace square is in front of the palace. The palace garden begins directly behind the palace. The palace, including the square and garden, does not belong to the city of Karlsruhe, but to the state of Baden-Württemberg. During the Second World War, the entire castle was given a dark camouflage to make target acquisition from the air more difficult.
