Tribut to Carl Benz
Sunday, 23 April 2023
When Karlsruhe celebrates spring in all its colourful colours and scents with the Festival of the Senses on 22 and 23 April, the tradition-steeped tribute to perhaps the most famous Karlsruhe resident will also return to the city centre!
At the “Tribute to Carl Benz”, Karlsruhe awaited around 300 classic cars on Sunday, 23 April 2023, to pay tribute to Carl Benz, the automobile inventor born in Karlsruhe-Mühlburg. This year, the tradition-steeped event finally returns to its ancestral place in front of Karlsruhe Castle, in front of the most beautiful backdrop Karlsruhe has to offer. As part of the City Edition, the “Tribute to Carl Benz” took place on 8 May 2022, exceptionally on Kaiserstraße.
Visitors to Karlsruhe's city centre can experience 136 years of automotive history in motion – made possible by the invention of a great son of our city!
