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.

I visited turemberg in early feb 2015 and the temperature was 0 deg C. I took a tram to durlach and turemberg is very closeby. After a short walk the tram for the steepest slope was there. However some construction was going on and hence not wrking. By walk to turemberg was awesome. Could see snowy hill view and beautiful... More

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.

The Turmberg is a large hill (you couldn't really say it is a mountain) at Durlach just outside Karlsruhe. To get there, you need to take the tram to Tullastrasse, then a bus (number 11, I think) to Durlach. There is a funicular railway to take you to the top, where there is a tall mediaeval tower that the energetically... More

This is a nice place to view the surrounding area around Karlsrhue, the tram makes it a fun addition to the trip. You can go taking the trolley S1, until the last stop, climb 1 block following signs. Trolley fare one way is $1.90, round trip $2.80. If you decide to walk down, There is a less steep path, if... More

It is a good trip to do in Karlsruhe. A great view of the city, Turmberg is the highest point of Karlsruhe. If you like to walk, you can go on foot, but there is a option to take a "tram" that leave you in there (you need to pay for it). There are restaurant there, so you can enjoy... More

The entrance to the funiculaire is a bit hidden in a residential area. For a few euros you can buy a return ticket to the tip of the Turmberg. Somehow there are other tourists that manage to find the spot, we had a pretty full car going up. At the end of the funiculaire you can climb about 100 stairs... More

The Turmberg offers excellent views over Karlsruhe for those who can manage the narrow spiral staircase. The funicular railway is certainly a novelty and a very interesting piece of engineering. The surrounding borough of Durlach is home to a really very pleasant high street with some great shops.

Durlach is a borough of Karlsruhe, but is actually older than Karlsruhe itself, and in many ways, more charming. To reach Durlach, get on the #1 tram (Durlach is the final destination, so the name will appear on the outside of the tram). Durlach is a network of fairly picturesque side streets with one main street running through the center,... More
