Unprepossessing in itself, Karlsruhe was built around its sumptuous palace, with 32 streets radiate from the palace like the ribs on a folding fan.
The palace was erected in 1715 by Margrave Charles III William of Baden-Durlach, who gave his name to the city he founded. It now houses the eclectic Badisches Landesmuseum (Baden State Museum).
