ESN Card is a must have!

What is the ESNcard?

The ESN Card is your “international passport” during your stay in Karlsruhe. With this card you will not only get in for free to all our International Party nights, but also get a discount on our city trips and most of our events. It also allows you to get special offers in many of Karlsruhe’s most popular bars, restaurants and clubs – and in fact, almost everywhere in Europe! ESN International has hundreds of partners offering special deals to students with an ESNcard, no matter where they are!

How can I get one?

  • The card is currently priced at 10€ (which you will almost get back by saving 5€ on our next city trip).
  • You can only buy it during our office hours or during the Orientation Week. Online purchase is not possible (exception since this year - in the O-Phase presale). Please bring your ID or passport and a photo of you to facilitate the process.
  • You can get the card starting from your arrival at your exchange university, not before. Therefore, it is sadly not possible to use the Ryanair discount for your flight to Karlsruhe.

Finally, on the official ESNcard website, you can find a complete list of all ESNcard deals in Karlsruhe!
