With the laying of the foundation stone of his residential palace "Carols Ruh," Karl III. Wilhelm, Margrave of Baden, founded the city in 1715. Today it is the second largest city of Baden-Württembergs and seat of the highest judges of Germany. Also noteworthy are the fan-shaped streets and the proximity to the Black Forest, the Rhine and to France.
