Karlsruhe Card services

Karlsruhe at the best price! The Karlsruhe Card is worthwhile.

First things first: the Karlsruhe Card is valid for 48 hours from the time of first use. You may choose between the card including public transport (within the city: zone 100) for EUR 22.50 or that not including public transport for EUR 16.50. Children can always travel with our cards: the children’s card costs EUR 5.00 and always includes public transport. You may use each service only once.

Karlsruhe at the best price! But only with the Karlsruhe Card.  Your Karlsruhe Card is also your admission ticket to many of our partners’ attractions in the city: the city zoo, the ZKM | Center for Art and Media and six other museums. Enjoy attractive discounts at other partners too: How about a tour in a red double-decker bus or else a deserved break at the Europabad (a swimming-pool complex) after a busy day in the City?
