Our summer holidays don‘t start until the end of July


We live in a modern,semi-detached house on the outskirts of Karlsruhe.
Karlsruhe is a university town, close to the BLACK FOREST as well as to the wine area  Palatinate ("Deutsche Weinstraße"), also close to the French border and the ALSACE. EUROPA PARK is Germany's best loved theme park. All of this can be reached in about one hour by car.
Paris is 2,5 hours away by TGV from Karlsruhe main station.
There is excellent public transport ( train and tram) very close to our house.
Karlsruhe  boasts a lovely big zoo and there are excellent museums in Karlsruhe, too.
Here are some sites to give you a general idea of this part of the country:

There are five airports via which Karlsruhe is best reached if you travel by plane:
Baden- Airport Karlsruhe ( 35 km,20 miles) 
Stuttgart Airport (80 km, 56 miles)
Frankfurt/ Main (100 km, 60 miles)
Frankfurt/Hahn (193 km,125 miles)
Freiburg Basel (210km, 130 miles)
