In der Schule hätte man gesagt: Thema verfehlt!

Die Führung heißt: Karlsruhe,Geschichts-und Kulturrundgang! Wir haben 2/3 der Zeit am Anfang im Park verbracht und Dinge über den hiesigen Zoodirektor, über den Japan. Garten, Städtepartnerschaften und weitere Dinge sehr ausführlich erklärt bekommen! Es war daher ziemlich langweilig und unerfreulich! Den Rest der Zeit haben wir für die Stadt gehabt, die dann natürlich viel zu kurz kam! Sehr schade !
