Location and Facilities

A quite exceptional location

Located in the Rhine valley between Heidelberg, Mannheim, Stuttgart and Strasbourg, the European School Karlsruhe has a remarkable location in one of the most dynamic regions of Europe. Nearly 1,000 pupils attend our school.

Its campus, easily accessible and well connected by public transport, benefits from a green and wooded environment which is quite exceptional. The dispersion of the buildings over 10 ha creates a warm learning atmosphere and allows to offer our pupils a variety of sports activities and many places of relaxation.

In order to make the learning conditions optimal, the school has a number of specialised rooms to vary teaching conditions by adapting them to the needs of the pupils and their teachers. A digital work space is accessible to both pupils, staff and parents and promotes innovative teaching.
