Trains to Karlsruhe leave each hour. Pls. ask the staff at the counter for advice. They all speak fluently and perfectly English.
Every second train goes straight to Karlsruhe without any stop in between , every second train, you have a stop in MANNHEIM , where you have to switch the train to Karlsruhe.
