We made a special effort to arrive here near sunset! It was definitely worth it and the many couples there made it obvious that it's a must see spot!

Take the tram out to Durlach from Karlsruhe. Once there you can see Turmberg castle up on the hill. Walk towards it through town and you'll come to a tram/gondola that goes up the hill (it costs a few euro) or use google maps to find the long stair trail or streets and walk up to the castle. The castle... More

This is actually two attractions, because we took a funicular from Durlach to the base of the tower. We found a coupon for this in a brochure and paid 1 euro each for both funicular and tower. There are many steps to the top, so this is not for someone who cannot climb stairs. At the top you can see... More

This is a great place to view the city and the surrounding countryside - you can see for miles. It is a good place for walking with several trails in the woods and beyond.and there is also the tower to climb (free). The venue is easily reached from Karlsruhe centre by no 1 tram to Durlach (end of the line)... More

Turmberg castle was mostly destroyed by invaders, but the tall lookout tower has been preserved. It is a great scenic walk by many, many steps up to the base of the tower (or there is a ride provided for a fee). The walk is good exercise! Once we got to the base, we enjoyed a picnic lunch overlooking the city.... More

Beautiful views, on a clear day you can see forever. Nice play area for kids. Have seen the rope walkways, not had a chance to try it yet. But definitely is on the 'To Do' list.

Visited this location during my most recent visit to Germany. You can see for miles from the top of the tower. Great place to get exercise climbing stairs! Simply beautiful way to spend an hour or more.

Turmberg offers a beautiful view of the city and the rhine river. It is hard to catch the view with the camera, but it's worth seeing. In additon, the road to turmberg and the surroundings is also a great piece of nature.

This attractive town has a 10 minute tram service from Karlsruhe and has attractive architecture throughout its main street. Many restaurants and coffee shops with delicious gateaux and cakes permit time to relax with friends. A funicular transports passengers to the Turmberg from where excellent views can be obtained to many locations including Worth and towards Bad Wilbad and Ettlingen
