I have been several times to the race and I always buy the cheapest ticket which names "Sattelplatz" since I prefer to first watch the horses when they are presented at a place with names "Fuehrring" then go to the counter to bet on one horse and then go down to the racetrack. With this ticket you do no have a reserved seat or can go to some of the tribunes like "Oleander Turm". This is the right ticket if you like to walk arround a lot. If it is important for you to have a reserved table or seat you should take a tiket like "Große Sattelplatztribüne -
Numerierter Platz" or "Iffezheimer Tribuene"
There is no dresscode to enter the area of the circuit. You can be dressed very casual or very formal it is really up to you. Get some more impression of the horserace on my sisters travel page http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/4b2ab/c48b/
My favorite restaurant is Frizzantino in Fremersbergstr. There you get really great italian food at resonable prices.

Travel Tips for Baden-Baden
The Romanian orthodox Stourdza Chapel was built in 1864-1866 as a mausoleum for the Princes Stourdza. Prince Michael, who ruled the Principality of Moldavia till his expulsion in 1849, had the chapel built after the sudden death of his 17-year-old son, also named Michael, in Paris in 1863.
The famous Bavarian Architect Leo von Klenze designed the building, Georg Dollmann was in charge of the realization. The chapel is situated on the steep hillside above the Festspielhaus in a park with beautiful old trees. Bus 208 takes you up there if you don't want to walk.
The chapel can be visited only after advance reservation by phone: 07221-28574
The New Palace is high above the old town and near to the Stiftskirche. It is the formare home of the Margraves of Baden Baden. It is a pity because the place is run down and nothing is being done to restore it despite investors buying nearly 15 years ago. A piece of history is to be lost if nothing is done soon.
Even though it has been opened only 10 years ago, in 1998, the Festspielhaus in Baden-Baden has become one of the leading opera and concert halls in Germany.
The main building in the back with audience and stage was designed by the architect Wilhelm Holzbauer in postmodern style. The front part, however, is 100 years older. The entrance hall is actually the old train station of Baden-Baden. After the railway from the main station in Baden-Oos into town had been closed down and substituted by city buses, the neo-classicist station building was transformed into vestibule and box office for the new theater. The counter that once sold train tickets now serves as box office underneath the original sign saying "Fahrkarten" (train tickets).
"Please do not rush ..."
I've been there for just 2 days to enjoy a classical music concert in Festspielhaus, the main city hall.
The city center is relaxing and people average age is a little bit high ... actually this is an ideal spot for relaxing off-the-rush breaks.
And of course as it often happens in such environments, a lot of spots look nice but "used" or maybe "old" ... but after all this contributes to make BB (no, not Brigitte Bardot, I mean Baden Baden) charming & unique.

Similar to the Wiesbaden one for being as detailed as enough and useful.
