Square of Fundamental Rights

Platz der Grundrechte, 76133 Karlsruhe

General information:

The ‘Platz der Grundrechte’ was laid in 2005 between the perimeter road called Zirkel and Schlossplatz (the palace square). Walking through the pedestrian zone, it can be found between Marktplatz and the palace. The square is dotted with 24 double-sided street signs, each describing an important aspect of right and wrong – complete with statements made by judges, lawyers and common citizens who have come into conflict with German law.

The Platz der Grundrechte was a gift from the city of Karlsruhe to the Federal Constitutional Court of Germany, which is headquartered in Karlsruhe.
