Karlsruhe Durlach is the largest district of Karlsruhe.1715 the foundation of the new residence city Karlsruhe started from here. The eastern Karlsruhe district Durlach is older than Karlsruhe itself. The old town of Durlach with its picturesque market place, the town wall, the castle square and the narrow alleys and walls has a medieval flair. Durlach is the largest district of Karlsruhe with almost 30,000 inhabitants and is often called the "mother" of Karlsruhe. For the residence of the Margraves of Baden-Durlach was Durlach. But in 1715 Karl Wilhelm moved his court to Karlsruhe. Durlach remained an independent town. It was not until 1938 that it was incorporated.

Our veterinary practice is located on the so-called Geigersberg of Karlsruhe Durlach (our location). The Geigersberg is a residential area in Durlach.

The border to other residential areas is the Badener Straße (B3) in the west and the Rittnertstraße (K 9654) in the northeast. To the south, there are no directly adjoining settlements. The Geigersberg marks the northern beginning of the Black Forest, while the neighboring Turmberg, also located in Durlach, belongs to the southern foothills of the Kraichgau(© Wikipedia).

The local mountain is the Turmberg, on the top of which there are the remains of a castle to which the Turmberg cable car leads. Opposite it, separated by the Rittnertstraße, lies the Geigersberg, where the Black Forest begins. The Guggelensberg and Lerchenberg surveys follow. All these hills still belong to Durlach and are a popular celebrity and villa district of Karlsruhe because of the view from them over the Rhine plain.
