Schaufenster Karlsruhe – Tourist Information

A world of experiences in the heart of the city!

Since opening on 26 November 2019, Schaufenster Karlsruhe has been offering a warm welcome to both tourists and residents of Karlsruhe. Created as a place to experience Karlsruhe – not just to provide information about the city's attractions and events – Schaufenster Karlsruhe itself is a venue for receptions, information days, readings and much more. KTG Karlsruhe Tourismus GmbH and Stadtwerke Karlsruhe invite you to find your inspiration in this remarkable city. The approx. 280 m² room is home to a digital experience that marks it out as one of Germany's most state-of-the-art tourist information centres.

Visitors are guided through the interactive tour and can compile a personalised list of interests and information for their own micropage. This personal selection, gathered using QR code technology from a total of five stations, is stored on a card and 100% anonymous, of course. By scanning the respective codes with their mobile phone, visitors can create and access their own Karlsruhe homepage – an extremely convenient way to carry information.

Naturally, personal advice also plays a central role, so the staff of the Karlsruhe Tourist Information and the Stadtwerke are at the heart of Schaufenster Karlsruhe.
