This place has an awesome view of Karlsruhe city. It has a nice restaurant there. In a cold and windy day it may be not very comfortable to be in the top of it, but its a very nice place to go and take nice pictures.

You can have complete view of Karlsruhe from top of it. There is a bergbahn to reach the top, but better way is to climb by foot.

You will get there very nice view of the city Karlsruhe. The Tower is also great. By the foggy day you will see nothing.

Highest place of Karlsruhe, it has a nice view. You can arrive there by cabe car (2.8 to go and return) or by foot (it is a little tiring). A nice place to visit in Karlsruhe.

great spot , there is a new terrace build in 2015. You have a nice view over Karlsruhe and Durlach. You can go there by car or train. If you like it hardstyle you can use uncountable stepps up the hill :-) one of the best spots in Karlsruhe to take some beautiful pics of the sunrise/set

This is a fun tower to climb, and it has a tram that takes you to the top. It also has a newly built platform that gives you a nice spot to view the city. There were people with picnic baskets just hanging out. The tower has steep stairs to the top but is relatively accessible to most and worth... More

From here we took stunning views into the city of Karlsruhe. The tower is located close to Durlach, one of Karlsruhe's best living areas. We celebrated New Year's Eve with locals. It is a tradition every year. Nice place to take sights into the Badische Laendle too.

If you want to have a nice look of the city and understand its size, this is the best spot for doing so. Also, the trip on the tram is a nice experience. Affordable prices and if the weather is nice, your pictures will be nicer.
