Beautiful apartment in residential area in Karlsruhe-Durlach old town - Black Forest & Vineyards - UNESCO City of media art (30' minutes from Heidelberg)

Nice and spacious apartment of 1900 with stucco elements and view of mansion area in the trendy neighborhood Durlach-Turmberg in Karlsruhe near Heidelberg. 5 minutes walk to train and bus access. Our place is perfect for relaxing, exploring the area, the Black Forest and South-Germany. You can use our 3 adult-bicycles (and car) if you like.

We have a living of ca 30 m2 with a couch and a sofa bed, a large sleeping room of 25qm with double bed and a balcony, a fully equipped eat-in kitchen with balcony, two sleeping rooms with single and double bed and nice view, a bathroom with bath/shower.

In the neighborhood, within walking distance, there are a lot of good restaurants, nice bars and a large variety of shops. Close by there is a large park, a mountain train with access to the Black Forest and Vineyards, public swimming pools and natural lakes, the Castle of Durlach and Karlsruhe and several art museums, theaters downtown.

You will enjoy your stay in our house! We will be respectful with yours. We are non-smoker and do not accept smoking.

We like this way of traveling very much and we are completely enthusiastic about it! During our last exchanges we made unforgettable experiences in Amsterdam, Netherlands, Belgium, London, France and we love the opportunity to be immersed in a culture and a country.

The weather in our region is mostly fantastic, warm and sunny - from April until September/October we have 20°, from June until August up to 38° - it is ideal for exploring cities and being in the nature or in one of the sees or in a public pool.

Heidelberg is one of the Unecso cities of literature. https://www.unesco.de/en. Karlsruhe is Unesco City of Media.
There are literature festivals in summer and autumn and the open air Film-Festival in Mannheim. A great experience is the open air theatre at the castle during the summer with view and sunset above the city and the river. Also a boats trip on the river, in summer with possibility to see the castle firework, is an experience as the zoo, the different sees and public swimming pools, the old town. The Heidelberg theatre has a good orchestra with concerts, the theatre in Mannheim (30min) is after Frankfurt (1h) the best in Germany, there are famous operas with subtitles.

Please notice our two cats which are living and sleeping in-and outside the house and need to be feeded once a day and looking for some love:-) Our dog will be in a pension (or with us if you accept). Further we have two sweet rabbits in a big rabbit cage outside which need to be feeded once a day.

We are looking forward to you and new adventures! :-)

Best greetings, Kristin, Zoé and July
