Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre – A Top Location in Germany

In the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre, RESALE has found an entirely satisfying location.

Modern infrastructure, firstclass service and two pillar-free halls offering 25,000 m² of exhibition space are all available. There is also a 10,000 m² open-air site, which is used for commercial vehicles, construction machinery and agricultural machines.

The generous access provided by 8 gates to each hall simplifies setting up and dismantling operations.

Karlsruhe is at the centre of a thriving region
Through its geographical location between the Rhein-Main region and France (Alsace), Karlsruhe offers a unique business climate. This climate fosters the development of various business sectors. It is certainly not without a reason that the region of Karlsruhe occupies one of the leading positions amongst the European regions with the best perspectives for future development. Almost no other region can combine economic strength and quality of life in a way that Karlsruhe can!

Southern climate, lifestyle, culture and culinary highlights – in Karlsruhe all the good sides of life come together! Karlsruhe is one of the warmest cities in Germany. In addition to this mild climate, you will find a lively restaurant scene and an unrivalled relaxed atmosphere in its parks and green areas. Almost 60% of Karlsruhe’s surface are covered with parkland or forests. Go and feel the green – step on the lawn, lie in the grass!
The Karlsruhe region
Karlsruhe is located at the heart of Europe. France is only a few minutes away by car and even a short trip to Switzerland is no big deal. Karlsruhe lies at the foot of the hills of the Black Forest in the Rhine valley, with excellent connections to all destinations. The towns Mannheim to the North, Stuttgart to the East and Strasbourg to the Southwest are all only a stone’s throw away.

In the past, Karlsruhe was ruled by the “Markgrafen“, today it is ruled by the sheer joy of life. The sunny sides of life all come together at the castle (”Schloss”), where the historic fan-like layout of the streets has its origin.

City of culture and technology

Experience the diversity of the cultural life of Karlsruhe (273,000 inhabitants). Visit the many theatres and museums.

Although not even 300 years old, Karlsruhe has a rich tradition as economic, research and high-tech centre. Two of the most important inventions of our days were made by sons of the city: Karl Benz, who was born in the Mühlburg quarter of the city, is the father of the automobile and Freiherr von Drais invented the “Draisine”, predecessor of the modern bicycle.

Bretten und Maulbronn: The historical city of Melanchthon Bretten in the Kraichgau region (hilly region Northeast of Karlsruhe) has a well preserved old town that you can reach easily with public transport (S-Bahn). From Bretten, continue to Maulbronn with its medieval monastery, classified world cultural heritage by UNESCO, where Hölderlin and Hesse once went to school.

The pretty and colourful baroque palace is worth the short trip to Bruchsal – again, ideally with the efficient public transport system, for which the Karlsruhe region is famous.

Ettlingen: Karlsruhe is the gate, Ettlingen is the beginning of the Black Forest! The beautiful city has a lovely old town that breathes the fresh air of the nearby hills of the Black Forest. Stroll through the city, along the river Alb.

Heidelberg: Lose your heart in Heidelberg! The world famous city is not even 60 km away from Karlsruhe. A day trip to Heidelberg is not only worth it because of the castle – there are many more facets of the city to be discovered.

Rastatt: Baroque city close to the rivers Rhine and Murg. The beautiful castle Favorite just outside Rastatt is also worth a visit.

Speyer: The emperors of the “Salier“ dynasty rest in the crypt of the Dome of Speyer. The city is world cultural heritage of the UNESCO with its many historical buildings.

Straßburg: Vis-a-vis from Karlsruhe in France lies the capital of the Alsace region. Go explore it! Not only the “Munster“ church, also the French Savoir vivre and the romantic old city with the Little Venice district, numerous small shops, bistros and cafés will enchant you!
