Karlsruhe Zoo: If being in the Messe Karlsruhe surrounded by people all day gets a bit tiring, the Karlsruhe Zoo provides a respite. Spend some time with a wide range of animals and interactive exhibits!

For Drinks

Vogelbräu: If it’s a proper biergarten you want, experience locally brewed beer at Vogelbräu.

Hoepfner Burghof: Another must-visit for beer enthusiasts is Hoepfner Burghof, located in a historic castle-like building. Their beer garden is a fantastic spot to relax and savour traditional German brews.

For Eats

Kaisergarten: For an authentic taste of the Baden-Württemberg region, Kaisergarten is a must-visit. They offer local dishes prepared with fresh, seasonal ingredients. We were advised to get the schnitzel.
