    It took a while for the people of Karlsruhe to get used to replacing the road with tracks with grass. But the result is worth it!The slaughterhouse was opened in 1897 and was in operation until 2006. Today "Creative Park". In 2007, the slaughterhouse restaurant was opened and the cultural center Tollhaus expanded. Since 2010, the Schweinmarkthalle has been used for events.
    Here is also the music club Substage. The soft in its old place (in a former underpass) the construction site for the subway.
    The Human Rights Center on Durlacher Allee has been there for some time.

    At that time, the city supported the reconstruction of the new "old slaughterhouse" with about 2.6 million euros.
    In addition to some other work, the money was u.a. invested in setting up about 70 overseas containers, which have since served as workplaces for active business start-ups. Today, the entire slaughterhouse area is managed by a cooperation of various city development, cultural and economic development institutions of the city. Many of the 19th-century industrial and commercial buildings are listed and will continue to testify to the former use of the area. Newly built buildings should consciously stand out from the architecture of the old buildings.
