I liked the palace and its surroundings. There is also a botanical garden. You can take a trip with a steam locomotive

LAst time when we were here in Karlsruhe, we didn't have the opportunityy to visit the castle. Now we had more time, and we not only walked in the huge garden, but visited the very interesting museum too.
