The airfield Karlsruhe-Forchheim was the airfield of the city of Karlsruhe until the year 2000 and was used for general aviation. It was located south of the city in the Forchheim district of Rheinstetten. Tower and hangars have now been demolished and the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Center is located on the site. Part of the asphalt runway can still be seen.
Flight operations were relocated to the former Canadian military airport near Rheinmünster, which had been converted to Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden Airport. Since then, international flights have also been handled there. A few hundred meters east of the former airfield, the Rheinstetten glider airfield has been in operation since 2004 with an 830 meter long grass runway and a 1030 meter long winch runway in the 02/20 orientations.
