About Karlsruhe

The University of Karlsruhe was founded in 1825 and is thus the oldest technical university in Germany. In 2009, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) was founded through the merger of the University of Karlsruhe (TH), now KIT Campus South, with the Karlsruhe Research Centre (founded as Kernforschungszentrum Karlsruhe GmbH (KfK)), now KIT Campus North. With 11 faculties, approx. 117 institutes and more than 25,000 students, 15.7% of them from other countries, the "Research University in the Helmholz Association" created by the merger is the largest German research institution and today ranks among the leading research institutions in Europe. The city of Karlsruhe was founded in 1715 by Markgraf Karl-Willhelm von Baden-Durlach. The city planning designed by Karl-Willhelm, is fan-shaped also interpreted as a sundial and is known far beyond its borders. Over the past decades, Karlsruhe has developed into a technology region and today has the highest number of researchers per capita in Germany. In 2017 the city had about 307000 inhabitants. The extraordinary location on the Rhine between the Black Forest and Alsace (France) gives the city a mild climate and thus a high quality of life for its citizens.
