The title of my review sums up all there is to see at this plaza. Kind of interesting that through the grass are tram tracks, the dueling public transit meshing with a pretty but nondescript plaza closer to the big plaza of Koningsplatz.
We came out of Konigsplatz U-bahn station, walked through Konigsplatz, and then came across Karolinenplatz on the way to the museums. It's a nice square with the historical obelisk and many, many flowers.
This is a small, yet beautiful area that contains an obelisk, brightly-colored flowers, and a tram that travels around this plot of land. So, be careful to ensure you don't get hit by one of the trams.
