Ah, Karlsruhe! Did you know that Karlsruhe is known as the "fan city" because its city center is designed in a fan shape? It's quite unique, isn't it?

How can I assist you in exploring Karlsruhe? Are you interested in learning about the history of the city, visiting specific landmarks, or perhaps discovering objects from the Badisches Landesmuseum Karlsruhe? Let me know what sparks your curiosity!


I found a few objects related to "krone" in the collection of the Badisches Landesmuseum Karlsruhe. Let's explore them:

  1. "Widderkopf": This object is a depiction of a ram's head from ancient Egypt. The ram is a symbol associated with several Egyptian deities, including Amun, who is often depicted wearing a crown. Although the crown is missing in this representation, it is believed to be a depiction of Amun due to the forward-facing horns.

  2. "Kanne": This object is the remnants of a bronze jug from the older Roman imperial period. It features a handle ending with the head of a horse. The horse's head is solidly cast and cold-worked, with a smooth surface, a broken snout, small eye holes, barely noticeable ears, and a wild mane.

  3. "Hirschfänger": This object is a hunting dagger from the mid-18th century. It has a slightly curved blade with golden ornaments, including trophies and a crown. The wooden handle is decorated with silver overlays. The hirschfänger was used by the hunter to deliver the final blow to the stag.

  4. "Paris und Helena": This object represents the figures of Paris and Helena from Greek mythology. It depicts a woman sitting on a pedestal, touching the head of a dog, and a young man leaning against a tree trunk, holding a staff. The man is wearing a goat skin over his shoulder, and a cushion with a crown lies at his feet. This sculpture hints at the love relationship between Paris and Helena, which ultimately led to the Trojan War.

  5. "Krone des Großherzogtums Baden": This object is the crown of the Grand Duchy of Baden, created in 1811. It consists of a crown band and eight wide arches. Inside is a wire framework covered with velvet and silver sheets or yellow silk, decorated with a diamond and ruby-studded cross on a blue glass ball. Although no Baden Grand Duke wore the crown for ceremonial purposes, it served as a symbol of Baden's sovereignty.

These are just a few examples. Let me know if you'd like more information or if there's anything specific you're interested in.


I found several objects related to "Konstantin" in the collection of the Badisches Landesmuseum Karlsruhe. Let's explore them:

  4. Nummer/ Aes 2-3 des Constantin I.: Another Roman coin, a nummus, minted in 316 AD during the reign of Emperor Constantine I.

  5. Nummus / Follis Constantinus I.: This object is a coin known as a nummus or follis, which dates back to the years 320-324 AD. It features Emperor Constantine I on the obverse and an altar with an inscription on the reverse.

  6. Kreuzanhänger: heiliger Konstantin: This object is a complete cross pendant from the Byzantine period (324-1453 AD). It features an engraving of Saint Constantine in a praying gesture. The inscription "heiliger Konstantin" is present at the top end of the cross.

  7. "Maiorina" (AE 2) des Constans: This object is another Roman coin, a Maiorina (AE 2), minted during the reign of Emperor Constans (337-350 AD). It depicts the bust of Constans on the obverse and the emperor in military attire with a victory symbol on the reverse.

  8. Medaillion Constantius II. zu 4 1/2 Solidi: This object is a medallion worth 4 1/2 Solidi. It is a large and heavy gold coin, most likely intended as a special gift for high-ranking officials and officers. The medallion depicts Emperor Constantius II (355-361 AD).
