Market Square is considered the center of the historic district of Karlsruhe. There is the building of the town hall of incredible beauty nearby. This part of the city is the location of another important symbol of the city - a monument in the shape of a pyramid. The monument is dedicated to the city's founder, Karl Wilhelm. The monument was erected directly above the tomb of Margrave. According to historical records several centuries ago a church was located in this place. The eastern part of the city is the location of another important architectural object - Schloss Gottesaue, which was built in the 9th century. Originally the palace belonged to a Benedictine monastery, and later it was decided to open the University of Music in this beautiful historic building.
An excursion in Museum of Natural History (Naturkundemuseum) will certainly leave many exciting memories. The museum was opened more than 200 years ago. Its collection is devoted to natural science research. Among the items exhibited in the museum tourists will find collections of minerals and geological exhibits, reptiles and fish, as well as models of dinosaurs. Art lovers will have many positive memories after visiting Staatliche Kunsthalle, which exhibits a large collection of sculptures of the 15th century.
