Corona Virus

Important Information

Due to the official measures implemented by the State of Baden-Württemberg and the city of Karlsruhe to limit the spreading of COVID-19, Karlsruhe’s public life is currently facing severe restrictions. Cultural institutions, hotels and events are especially affected by this. Please refer directly to their individual websites for up-to-date information.

As of May 4th, 2020, the Karlsruhe companies have reopened! The current situation is still existence-threatening for many companies because there is a lack of income from the past few weeks. So take advantage of the opportunities offered and shop locally, whether on site, by telephone or online. All information can be found here. You will also find a list of restaurants that offer a pick-up or delivery service here. The opening times may differ from the information on this website.

Our tourist information office located on Kaiserstraße 72-74 is opened again as well with high security measures Monday - Friday 10am - 4pm and Saturday from 10:30am - 2:30pm.

The city of Karlsruhe provides up-to-date information on the corona crisis at www.corona.karlsruhe.de or by phone +49 721/133-3333.

On a lighter note: if you feel like clearing your mind, go ahead and continue exploring the beautiful aspects of Karlsruhe through our digital offers at www.karlsruhe-tourismus.de/smartathome (only available in German).

Stay healthy, and stay tuned!
