The golden core

Karl-Friedrich-Straße is a key transport link and the central point of the city.

With historical buildings and political venues like the Town Hall or the Place of the Fundamental Rights, Karl-Friedrich-Straße offers you not only a wide array of shops, it also has plenty of historical value – a street with a past and a future.

Locally, Karl-Friedrich-Straße is known as the “golden core” of the fan-shaped streets in Karlsruhe. As the most historical street in the city, Karl-Friedrich-Straße, named after Grand Duke Charles Friedrich, not only connects Marktplatz and Rondellplatz, it also stretches from the Palace to Ettlinger Straße to the south. Direct access to the popular Ettlinger Tor shopping centre gives you the best opportunity to keep the shopping mood alive, even in poor weather. In addition to the special location and the various shops, there is also a focus on culinary delights. Modern system catering meets down-to-earth taverns and well-known pubs.
