Arrival by coach

Baden-Baden is accessible to coach companies, tour operators and their passengers. However, it is advisable to plan ahead.
Here, coach tour operators and coach drivers will find all the information and special arrangements for travelling by coach.

Please note that the city centre of Baden-Baden is closed to coaches. With a special entry permit from the city of Baden-Baden, for which a fee is charged, the central Ludwig-Wilhelm-Platz may be approached for entry and exit. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will be happy to take care of the relevant application for you as our customer.

There are two options for arriving by coach:
1. If your group arrives by coach, you will need a special permit (15,- Euro*). With this permit, the coach is authorised to let guests get on and off in the city centre. With this permit you are allowed to drive to Ludwig-Wilhelm-Platz in the city centre (see city map) to drop off your guests there and pick them up again later. (*Prices may still change in 2022).
For parking, the coach has to go to another coach park (Eisenbahnstraße), which costs extra.
Please let us know if you would like to book this permit for 15,- per bus. We can issue the permit together with the booking.

2. There is also the possibility to get off at the public coach park in Eisenbahnstraße (for a parking fee). Our guide will pick up the group there and lead them from there to the city centre. The 1/2-hour walk into the city centre is then already part of the city tour. Normally the tour starts in the city centre. The tour also takes 1.5-2 hours from here, but has a few less sights.
IMPORTANT: If our guide is also to accompany the group on the way back to the public bus park, approx. 1 hour is lost on the way from the bus park to the city centre and back. Due to the smaller time window in the city centre, not all sights can be visited.

The city centre of Baden-Baden is closed to coaches. Access is only possible as far as Ludwig-Wilhelm-Platz with a special entry permit.
Without an entry permit, you can drive as far as the Festspielhaus and the Caracalla Therme bus stop.

Parking in the city centre is not possible. Buses can park at the coach car park on Eisenbahnstraße (fee required).

The special entry permit can only be issued by Baden-Baden Kur & Tourismus GmbH in conjunction with the booking of other services such as a guided tour of the town.
Otherwise you can book the entry permits at the road traffic authority (strassenverkehr@baden-baden.de).
Further information on the procedure and required documents for the entry permit can be found here.
