Its proximity to the Karlsruher Institute of Technology (KIT) means that it also attracts a lot of students to its cultural events.

The Karlsruhe’s youth and community centre offers plenty of popular cultural recreational activities and events. If you’re in a shopping mood, the many independent businesses offer unique shopping experiences on a daily basis.
