... and in Karlsruhe
Karlsruhe has a very good public transport system. You can, of course, take a taxi if you wish. If you live in the city-centre it would be better to use the tram. During standard office-working hours a tram comes every 5 to 10 minutes. The Karlsruhe public transport system is run by the KVV (Karlsruher Verkehrsverbund) and so you only need one type of ticket for the various trams and buses. If you require further details please contact KVV (https://www.kvv.de/).
