Wildparkstadion is a football stadium located in Karlsruhe, Germany. It is the home of the football club Karlsruher SC.

It is located northeast of the Karlsruhe Palace (Schloss) and is part of the former deer park (Wildpark) of the Grand Dukes of Baden in the Hardtwald, hence the name. There have been football pitches at the location since 1922, and the stadium was built in 1955, with several major renovations since.
