Shopping & Adventure

Karlsruhe lives by the motto “miles, malls, and more”, boasting three shopping miles in the Kaiserstraße, Karlstraße, and Waldstraße, as well as the Post Galerie shopping mall, which ranks among the most splendid malls in Europe. In the old palace, which is more than 100 years old, visitors can enjoy a bit of shopping with a beautiful, neo-Baroque architectural backdrop.

The flagship of Karlsruhe’s shopping opportunities is the Ettlinger Tor. This arcade has an area of 33,000 square meters (355, 209 square feet) spread over three floors, all built in a luxurious architectural style reminiscent of an ocean liner. On these “decks”, over 130 specialist shops, restaurants, and bars entice customers with fashion, trends, beauty, and wellness.
