The city was planned with the palace tower (Schloss) at the center and 32 streets radiating out from it like the spokes of a wheel, or the ribs of a folding fan, so that one nickname for Karlsruhe in German is the "fan city" (Fächerstadt). A mild climate with 1798 hours of sunshine per year, 102 km of bicycle paths, 12 public baths, around 900 hectares of green space and more than135 cultural institutions - the sports and leisure activities offered in the city are diverse and boredom is a foreign concept in Karlsruhe.

Anlaufstelle in Pune

 

Direkte Ansprechpartner
Die Kooperation zwischen Karlsruhe und dem indischen Pune ist einen Schritt weiter: Im Januar 2014 wurde im MCCIA Trade Tower, 403, Senapati Bapat Road, eine direkte Karlsruher Anlaufstelle in Pune eröffnet. Erste Ansprechpartner dort sind die Repräsentantinnen Iris Becker und Winnie Kulkarni von Let's Bridge IT, die rund um den Standort Karlsruhe informieren, aktiv Kontakte zu indischen Firmen halten - und dazu auch deutsche Firmen aus der TRK in und um Pune bekannter machen.


"Wir freuen uns, dass wir hier einen festen Standort haben. Das bringt unsere Kooperationen einen Schritt weiter", so der Tenor.
Auch von indischer Seite wurde dieses Engagement vor Ort schon mehrfach besonders gewürdigt: Eine gute Basis für weitere enge Kooperationen.
