Erected in 1715 A.D. by Margrave Karl Wilhelm of Baden-Durelach, the Karlsruhe Palace marked the founding of Karlsruhe. Much of the city centre, including the palace, was reduced to rubble by Allied bombing during World War II but was quickly rebuilt after the war.
Founded in 1715 A.D as Karlsruhe Palace near the French border, Karlsruhe Germany is a medium sized city with a population just under 300,000. Karlsruhe geographically sits on the 49th parallel.
