Did You know?

A must-see! Art nouveau and villas in "Baischstraße", laid out and built between 1900 - 1903. All the buildings were designed by Hermann Billing. This complex is considered to be his magnum opus.

Karlsruhe's "Kaiserplatz" is located at the western end of "Kaiserstraße", just before "Mühlburger Tor". It got its name from the monument of Kaiser Wilhelm I on horseback set in the middle of the square.

In 1889, one year after the Kaiser died, the Grand Duke of Baden ordered that a monument be built for him. The monument was designed by Adolf Heer and was ceremoniously unveiled on 18 October 1897.

105 years later, in 2002, a counterpoint was set east of the monument. 27 granite slabs were laid in the ground, each one bearing the name of a revolutionary of 1848, hanged after the Baden Revolution in 1849 on the initiative of the then Crown Prince Wilhelm, the so-called "Kartätschenprinz" ("canister-shot prince").
