Karlsruhe (German pronunciation: ['ka?ls?u??]; formerly Carlsruhe) is a city in the state of Baden-Württemberg, in southwest Germany, near the Franco-German border.
Karlsruhe Palace was built in 1715 and the town is now the seat of two of the highest courts in Germany, the Federal Constitutional Court and the Federal Court of Justice.
It has been speculated that Karlsruhe was a model for Washington, D.C. as both cities have a centre from which the streets radiate outward.
Karlsruhe Palace was erected in 1715 by Margrave Charles III William of Baden-Durlach, after a dispute with the citizens of his previous capital, Durlach. The city of Karlsruhe has since grown around it.
In 1918, the last monarch Frederick II, Grand Duke of Baden had to move out.

The former residence of the Rulers of Baden is since used as Badisches Landesmuseum.
The collection of the Margraves of Baden
The weapons room contains the oldest objects in the collection of the Margraves of Baden. The collection is primarily composed of handguns as well as cutting and stabbing weapons from the 16th to 19th centuries.
Spoils from the Wars (Türkenbeute) of the Ottoman Empire between the 16th and 18th centuries, commonly known as the Turkish Wars, have found their way into secular and sacred treasuries and collections and libraries throughout all of Europe, with examples appearing in Vienna, Budapest, Krakow, Moscow, Dresden, Munich and Karlsruhe. The Karlsruhe Türkenbeute collection (Turkish spoils of war) stands out as a prominent example among these collections.
The trophy collection owes its thanks to the successful participation of Baden’s margraves in the Ottoman Empire Wars, and above all to Margrave Ludwig Wilhelm von Baden-Baden. His victories over the Ottomans in the decade after the Battle of Vienna in 1683 earned him the nickname Türkenlouis and made him very famous among his people.
Approximately 400 objects survive today. These objects, their stories and their historical background are documented in detail in the Virtual Museum (available only in german language).
