InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Karlsruhe

Hello to all Americans in Karlsruhe! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Karlsruhe? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Karlsruhe which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Karlsruhe combines the laid-back with the innovative. The second-largest city of Baden-Württemberg is a neoclassical style city known for its palace, old town, and art nouveau suburbs, but also for its status as a major study and research center, being home to Germany’s oldest technical university, and much more! With the comprehensive public transportation network consisting of buses and trams as well as a suburban railway service (Stadtbahn), navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in the outer suburbs or surrounding towns, which are an easy commute away from Karlsruhe’s center.

Although Karlsruhe has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Karlsruhe, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.

    On InterNations I did not only meet interesting people but I also found a flat near Bochum and settled in quickly. A great platform.
