The Festplatz of Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre

Our large open space in the city centre

10,000 square metres of open-air space in the middle of Karlsruhe are provided by our Festplatz at the Kongresszentrum, which is surrounded by the Stadthalle, the Schwarzwaldhalle, the Konzerthaus and the Gartenhalle. Meet indoors, party outdoors or use the Festplatz as an additional outdoor exhibition space. Contact us if you would you like to use this outdoor area for your event at Kongresszentrum Karlsruhe. When you rent one of our halls in Karlsruhe, the large outdoor area is advantageous not only for events, but also as logistical space. It offers ample room for your delivery vehicles, VIP automobiles or, if necessary, additional parking space.

My personal highlight of the Festplatz:

the underground car park, so that even in bad weather you only have to cover very short distances to the event.
