A sightseeing tour in Germany cannot be without a visit to Karlsruhe, the city that develops around the Castle of Charles William and its large park with the botanical garden that houses several greenhouses including the Wintergarten, created in the nineteenth century. The proximity to the Rhine River and the presence of the University played a fundamental role in Karlsruhe's notoriety. Today, it is the museums that give the city its reputation as an ideal destination for lovers of art. While the National Museum of Fine Arts collects prestigious paintings from the fourteenth century to today, the Badisches Landesmuseum (Baden Regional Museum) collects handicrafts from prehistoric times to today. Then we come to the Museum fur Neue Kunst, the contemporary art museum that houses the ZKM, the center for art and technology located in a former arms factory, and displays works by artists of the caliber of Warhol. In the surroundings of Karlsruhe, a visit we reccommend is to Maulbronn Abbey, built in 1147 by Alsatian monks and enlarged by the Cistercians, declared a World Heritage Site.
