If you've got a free afternoon, it's worth it to visit the Turmberg. Drive up, hike up if you're energetic, or take the tram. The view from the top is excellent.

It was an alright walk up and the view is alright. I think it is good to do when there is nothing else to do. The cafe at the top had nice flammkuchen.

You will have to walk some stairs but the view is worth it. View over Karlsruhe and the mountains in the background

Turmberg is one of the places that are worth visiting. The view is great. There are stairs and benches where you can sit and chill while watching the sunset. It would be good if there were any shops or restaurants but I didn't see.

Despite the area being busy with tourists the funicular was not running. This was a feature of the entire city most attractions only being open at weekends. Anyway the staircase was never ending and the stairs in a dangerously poor condition

Take the tram out to Durlach from Karlsruhe. Once there you can see Turmberg castle up on the hill. Walk towards it through town and you'll come to a tram/gondola that goes up the hill (it costs a few euro) or use google maps to...More

We made a special effort to arrive here near sunset! It was definitely worth it and the many couples there made it obvious that it's a must see spot!

This is actually two attractions, because we took a funicular from Durlach to the base of the tower. We found a coupon for this in a brochure and paid 1 euro each for both funicular and tower. There are many steps to the top, so...More
