Is paying by card a growing trend? Here in Karlsruhe, it certainly is. This is because the Karlsruhe Card allows you to discover the city your own way – and much, much cheaper! Cardholders can visit key attractions like the Karlsruhe Centre for Art and Media (ZKM), the zoo, the 7 largest museums and the Schlossgartenbahn mini-railway in the palace grounds free of charge, while discounts are provided for crowd-pleasers like the Europabad water park and the Baden State Theatre and special rates are given at many restaurants and pubs. The Karlsruhe Card is valid for 48 hours, either with or without public transport – the choice is yours.
