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.
The Karlsruhe Palace is the center of the Karlsruher fan. In particular, north direction good bike paths.
