Two kilometres of shopping fun

Karlstraße is one of the key streets for traffic in the fan-shaped city. With a length of almost two kilometres, it runs through city center west, through city center south, and then in the direction of Beiertheim-Bulach.

As such, Karlstraße has a particularly wide and diverse range of businesses where you can shop or browse. From wedding dresses to quality men’s shirts, right up to blouses made from natural textiles – everybody will find what they are looking for here.

Karlstraße has plenty of options for shopaholics. Primarily the direct connection to the Postgalerie shopping centre close to Europaplatz means that you can have an extensive shopping experience, even when it’s raining. You still want more? The numerous independent businesses provide visitors with the latest fashion trends, culinary delights, and little surprises for your loved ones. The street is named after Grand Duke Charles of Baden, and passes by Kaiserstraße, Kriegstraße, and the A-Road Bundesstraße 10, among others. That means that it is particularly well connected with the transport network in Karlsruhe. All of the shops can be reached easily on foot, by tram or by car.

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.
