The Badisches Landesmuseum is located in the great baroque castle of Karlsruheantique – the architectural focal point of the fan-styled city of Karlsruhe. Starting from the castle the boulevards span the city of Karlsruhe in a radial manner from the center to the peripheral areas. Viewing along the middle axis the university campus stretches to the left and the downtown area with the shopping centers begins at the market plaza and stretches to the right.
