I read somewhere that this was one of the richest cities in Europe, is that right? how come? it looks small
Yes, apparantly it's Europe's 2nd most richest city.

Germany's biggest oil refinery is located in Karlsruhe, at the western edge of the city, directly on the river Rhine.
Karlsruhe is known as the internet capital of Germany because two well-known internet service providers are located in the city.
The Technologieregion Karlsruhe is a loose confederation of the region's cities in order to promote high tech industries; today, about 20% of the region's jobs are in Research and Development which gives a good basis for high tech.

i am glad you like the pics. i love my city. it´s not a huge city but has everything you need. and we are close to France and not far from Switzerland to go away for a weekend. the black forest is starting here too.
it is one of the warmest citys in Germany. the bicikle was invented here and Mr. Benz was born here the inventor of the car as you might know.
