What you will love about this home

You will love the atmosphere in my apartment. It is light-flooded, windows to the east, windows to the west... always sun inside, bright colours, high ceiling as typical for historic registered old buildings like mine, floor of oak parquet in all the rooms, furnishment is cozy, creative, with a lot of lightful space, 3 little balconys. You will love the huge wooden table in the living-room to sit with friends for dinner. You will like that my apartment has a fully equiped kitchen, TV, WLAN, Music, a lot of books.

Also you will love the relaxed tranquility: It´s a traffic-calmed area, almost no cars. In the morning you will just hear some birds. For me this is extraordinary wonderful: I stay in a City, just some minutes by tram or bike to the center of the City and at the same time enjoy quiteness like in the countryside.

The apartment has the special charme of old buildings with all comfort of new apartments.
You will also love the street/district. In my street you will find ONLY beautiful heritage-protected old buildings.

What you will love in the neighborhood

In the little streets arround (1- 5 minutes to walk) you´ll find 2 bakerys, a food-shop and some nice cafés and restaurants. The district is charming, old beautiful buildings, nice helpful neighbours, relaxed atmosphere. At the corner of my street is a cute wine-tavern for tapas and real good wine. They also offer one excellent home-cooked menu every evening.

Just 3 minutes walk and you are in the ZKM (Center for Art und Media) which is a famous museum and art-school with wonderful exibitions (often interactive). The ZKM one of the reasons people from far away come to Karlsruhe.

You will be in the city-center and at the castle of Karlsruhe with tram or bike in some minutes, walking in about 20 minutes. Tram stations are near the house, public transfer is well elaborated in Karlsruhe

You will love to hang out in the park and the botanic garden around the castle of Karlsruhe.

10 minutes walk and you will be in the "Günther-Klotz-Anlage" which is a huge green belt with lakes and a brook called "Alb" and playgrounds for children. You may enjoy jogging or walking along the little river.

A huge, nice swimming-pool (inside and outside), the Europabad, is just 10 minutes walking away.

Beautiful nature around and some other very nice cities near. The apartment is optimal for excursions to Heidelberg or Straßbourg (both worth to see!), and for hiking trips in the Black Forest, France (Elsass, just 20 minutes away over the River Rhein) or the Pfalz.

Additional information

About 9 months of the year I am living myswelf in my apartment. During these times to have 2 people as guests will be fine. Only during holidays (3 months of the year, different times) I am mostly on tour. Than you may come with more people. There is one big double-bed for 2 persons (2mx2m), a comfortable sleeping-couch for 1 person or a couple in love or 2 childrem (2m x 1,40 m) and some matresses (2m x 0,70m) Only 2 of them are mentioned here under "beds" but in case of need you may use all five and spread them in the living-room.
