Bundesverfassungsgericht May 03, 2017
Karlsruhe is the seat of Germany's top judiciary institutions, including Bundesverfassungsgericht (constitutional court), Bundesgerichtshof (federal court of justice) and Bundesanwaltschaft (federal state attourney).

The Bundesverfassungsgericht building was designed by the architect Paul Baumgarten and built in 1965-1969. The building is modest on purpose, in consideration of the status and reputation of post-war Federal Republic of Germany in the eyes of the world. The open glass construction is supposed to symbolize the transparency of democracy.

Lately a new wing has been added at the back side because the court needed more offices. This new building has caused a lot of uproar in town because it consumed a few square metres of the adjacent botanical garden.

Security is tight. The building cannot be visited - don't walk beyond the rails either - except for trials.

Visitors who want to attend a trial have to register in advance and leave their ID cards at the entrance. Please consult the website for the details how and where to register.
