    CAR PARKS

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We found Baden-Baden didn't have a lot of street parking, and what we found was for a short period of time. I asked at the Tourist Information centre and was told to use the Parking stations.
    This is what we did, only the one at Augustaplatz was full, so we had to go to one further away and walk back.
    Congresshaus underground car park has 409 spaces
    Augustaplatz 10

    Parking Garage City-Parkhaus 410 spaces
    right beside the Kongresshaus
    Lichtentaler Strasse 41

    Kurhaus underground car park 548 spaces
    Kaiserallee

    There are more than these available

    Do not walk from the train station into town

    Train station

    Inspired by the sad and exhausting experiences of certain VTers during the Euromeet 2008...

    Baden-Baden's train station is situated in the suburb of Oos. From there to the city centre it's some 5 kms - in other words: about one hour!

    Do not try walking. The way is not dangerous at all but looooooong. You'll be on your feet for an hour along a boring street and be tired already before you even reach the interesting part of the town.

    Take the bus instead. Buses depart every couple of minutes in front of the train station, and if you are travelling on a KVV ticket, it is valid on the bus. See my transportation tip.

    Take The Bus at the Train Station - Don't Walk!

    It is an extremely long walk from the train station in Baden-Baden to the actual town center, or "Zentrum". There are signs for it, but it never tells you how far it is. I wound up walking it and it was a very very long walk and it was uncomfortably warm that day. Take any bus that says it goes to the Zentrum!

    Watch out while driving in Baden-Baden. There is a pedestrian area (Leopoldsplatz) that is not very well marked as such, and one can very easily drive right into it! I got a ticket, it cost me 30 DM. Payment was expected right then, also. This also soured me on Baden-Baden. I'm sure the local police like to hang out here and ding unsuspecting tourists all the time!
