The Prinz-Karl-Palais , previously known as the Douglas Palais until 1900, was a representative city palace of Prince Karl von Baden at 51 Stephanienstraße in Karlsruhe, of which only the stables are preserved as annexes.

Until 1872 the Langenstein Garden was located on the north side of Stephanienstrasse between Karlstrasse and Hirschstrasse, which was then divided up. A section of the Langenstein family was originally to be built on one section (?).

From 1878 to 1884, Count Wilhelm Douglas had architect Jakob Friedrich Dyckerhoff build a palace as his main residence, which he then lived in. However, the count withdrew from the public around 1900 and sold the palace to Prince Karl of Baden, after whom it was subsequently named.

The building was destroyed in World War II in 1944, the remaining building remains were later demolished. In the meantime there is a residential building in the same place. The Eichamt Karlsruhe is located in the undamaged former stables.
