Cuisine and nightlife

Baden-style indulgence! What else?

Delicious food and excellent hospitality

The people of Karlsruhe tend to take a more relaxed attitude towards life. In Baden, lifestyle is a matter of importance, which you will quickly realise on a visit to Karlsruhe, for example with a good glass of wine or while sampling the local specialties. In Karlsruhe, gourmets, those with a sweet tooth, and night owls are sure to be satisfied. For local specialties, international recipes or truly special coffee from all over the world, in the Fan City, you can find something to suit all tastes and budgets!

So, where to this evening? The nightlife in Karlsruhe is alive and kicking, as you would expect from a university town. The colourful mix of students, styled scene hipsters and individualists benefit from a wide and diverse selection of locations.

Karlsruhe’s tastiest corners

Something local, a burger or maybe Italian? Your feast is waiting!

There is nowhere so wonderful to eat throughout the country than here in Baden with Karlsruhe also boasting an impressive culinary scene. Indulgence is a way of life in the "Badnerland", where the wine is kissed by the sun and gourmet-minded France is just a stone's throw away.
