I did offenburg (60 km south of karlsruhe) bremen in 12-14 hours if i
remember well, so going from karlsruhe to Kiel should be at least 14
hours if not more, and you will probably be changing train around 6-7
times. That said, it is nice, because you change train every 1-2 hours,
and so the trip is not so boring. It would be the cheapest solution, maybe,
altough we could consider renting a bus for doing the karlsruhe->oslo
trip, if there are enough peopl interested.
