What do I need to know about living in Karlsruhe?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Karlsruhe, they said:

"Before retiring in Karlsruhe, expats should be aware of the cost of living, which is slightly higher than the national average. Expats should also be aware of the language barrier, as German is the official language of the city. Additionally, expats should research the healthcare system in Karlsruhe, as well as the availability of public transportation. It is also important to research the local culture and customs, as well as the job market, to ensure that the city is a good fit for retirement," explained one expat living in Karlsruhe, Germany.
