Karl would experience very little Ruhe were he to be trying to get some sleep today. The construction of the East-West tunnel system has already managed to defy Einstein's theories on time. After 6 months they managed to be 1 year behind schedule. Work starts at 0630hrs and can be described as noisy and continual. This is good if you are paying the workers, not so good if you have paid to sleep close by. 2020 is a projected completion date.
Staff at the hotel are charming and helpful. They went out of their way to not just answer the question (are there any good beer pubs nearby?) but they also checked that their recommendations were actually open that night.

We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Novotel Karlsruhe City. It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback. I will share your comments with our team. Thanks as well for your amusing comments about the “project”. I regret the road works but we don’t have any influence. Fortunately, we have passed the peak and the cover on the tunnel is almost done. Your mentioned timeline comprises the overall subway in the whole town. We hope to see you again very soon.
