    Lt. During the Second World War, Wikipedia burned Karlsruhe Palace in September 1944 as a result of bombing. Between 1955 and 1966 it was rebuilt as a museum. Only the outer facade was faithfully restored. Modern exhibition areas were created inside. The palace facade was extensively renovated before Karlsruhe's city birthday in 2015.

    Architecturally, it is an impressive baroque palace. The castle houses the Badische Landesmuseum. The viewing platform in the tower can be visited via the museum.

    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. In September 1944, however, the Karlsruhe Palace was completely destroyed by bombing. It was rebuilt - despite deliberations in the meantime to demolish the ruins to create new living space - and the historical facade was restored.

    The castle was the reason why Karlsruhe was founded. The Karlsburg in Durlach no longer seemed pompous enough to the margrave. So in 1715 he had this castle built here in the middle of the swampy forest. The first inhabitants of Karlsruhe were the craftsmen for the construction, the officials for the administration and the soldiers. From this, a larger city quickly developed.

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.

    Of course there are enough people here who have described the castle. This is about the castle tower:
    "Perhaps the most original and nobly proportioned creation of Karlsruhe Classicism is the helmet of the castle tower, with which Wilhelm Jeremias Müller crowned both his work and the residence in 1785. Ten years after the completion of the extensive baroque style castle He had the curved hood of the old, disproportionately high castle tower removed and a new dome-like roof structure with a balcony and lantern built on the remaining tower shaft.
    The tower structure is also a teaching example for successful proportions. Its harmony results mainly from the fact that Müller - consciously or unconsciously - applied the rule of the "golden section". It says that two lines are in an ideal relationship to one another if the larger line is related to the smaller one as the sum of the two is related to the larger one. It is the same here: The height of the dome to the height of the lantern is the same as its total height to the height of the dome.

    The castle tower is open to the public via the Badisches Landesmuseum. "

    In front of the castle is the castle square. The palace gardens begin 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. It houses the Baden State Museum and the castle café.The castle tower offers a very good view of the Karlsruhe fan. In order to be able to experience this, however, 158 steps in the castle tower have to be overcome.ka.stadtwiki.net/Karlsruher_Schloss

    In 1715, Margrave Karl Wilhelm von Baden-Durlach founded the castle and town of "Carols Ruh" in the middle of the Hardtwald. The city of Karlsruhe has become famous for its fan-shaped floor plan starting from the castle: 32 axes radiate from the central castle tower, which are intersected by a compass. For almost 200 years, the Karlsruhe Palace served as the residence and seat of government of the Margraves, and later the Grand Dukes of Baden. In November 1918, the last reigning Grand Duke Friedrich II fled from the revolutionary Baden troops. As a result, the Karlsruhe Palace lost its function as a residence. The castle has been the seat of the Baden State Museum since 1919.
