Exploring, enjoying and experiencing – if that’s what you’re looking for, then Karlsruhe, the city of shopping and experiences, is just the place for you. Be it at one of the major shopping centres or on one of the fan-shaped streets – Karlsruhe has a lot to offer for all tastes. Hidden courtyards are home to the best insider tips in the fields of food and retail. There are markets held regularly that offer anything a collector or flower-lover could want. You can find a wide range of shops, not only in the city centre, but also in other parts of the city.

We hope you have a lot of fun shopping in the fan-shaped city!
