State Museum in Karlsruhe
The castle in Karlsruhe was constructed in 1715 as residence of the Margrave Karl Wilhelm von Baden-Durlach. After 1750 it was reconstructed according to Balthasar Neumann's plans. Following a bombing in World War II it completely burned out. After the war it was rebuilt as State Museum of Baden with a new layout. The museum with its collection of worldwide importance houses 5500 years of international cultural history. The exhibits range from pre and early history, to the Middle Ages, up to the 20th century. It is known for Baden-Württemberg's most important collection of antiquities and the “Türkenbeute” (Turkish loot).
