travel into Karlsruhe-Baden

I am due to fly into Karlsruhe-Baden in mid July via Ryanair. Is there a difference between Karlsruhe and Karlsruhe-Baden? I need to meet up with a friend in Tubighen (outside Stuttgart) and my friend does not know where Karlsruhe-Baden is. Any public transport available for the connection - bus, taxi or train? What is the estimated cost respectively? Any other advise or info that I need to know before any 'disaster' strikes!? Leah

Karlsruhe is the city. Kalrsruhe - Baden-Baden is the name created by Ryanair for the airport close to Baden-Baden. There are regular (every 30 min) buses from the airport to Baden-Baden station, from where you can take a train to Karlsruhe. I can imagine that Ryanair works together with some local bus company to lay on buses to Karlsruhe directly but I don't know of any. The train from Baden-Baden to Karlsruhe takes between 15 and 30 min, then you would have to change to Stuttgart and finally to Tübingen. Which is by the way anything but not "outside Stuttgart" but a good hour by train away from Stuttgart.

Look at www.bahn.de for schedules and prices from Baden-Baden to Tübingen. If you are travelling after 9 am you can use the Baden-Württemberg-Ticket for about 25 Euro which is good for up to 5 persons, in all local trains (RB, RE, S, IRE, but not IC/ICE ones) one whole day in all of Baden-Württemberg. Which includes all your travel actually.

The airport is in Soellingen, near Baden-Baden.

Take the hourly (on weekdays) bus Nr.234 to Rastatt Bahnhof (Rastatt station). There you can change to the S-Bahn from Baden-Baden to Karlsruhe.

I am going to Tubingen in November and would like to know how you got on with your transfer from Karlsruhe-Baden to Tubingen. Is it a straightforward train journey or is it a bit tricky? My alternative is to fly to Frankfurt and take the train from there. I would be very grateful for any advice on getting to Tubingen from Ireland

Best airport for Tübingen is Stuttgart airport. There is a direct bus from there to Tübingen (bus line 828).

If you want to fly with Ryanair fly either to Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden (FKB) or to Friedrichshafen (FDH). From both airports you can travel on the Baden-Württemberg Ticket (see previous answers) to Tübingen.

(Frankfurt -) Hahn is not a good idea if your destination is Tübingen.

and select as means of transport "only local transport" if you like to use the Baden-Württemberg Ticket.

For Stuttgart airport to Tübingen buy a normal p2p ticket for the bus.

No coaches here.

There is a city bus to Baden-Baden station. Your son can get the tickets from the bus driver.

At the station, he just has to go to the counter and say "one ticket to Stuttgart please". English will probably do, I have seen the ticket agents handle english-language tourists' requests several times.

There will be most probably one change in Karlsruhe.

Have a look at www.bahn.de for schedules and prices from Baden-Baden to Stuttgart.

For one person, buying a BaWü-Ticket probably won't save a lot of money.

Southside festival is in Neuhausen ob Eck, near Tuttlingen.

That's approx. 140 km south of Stuttgart.

www.southside.de/index.php?lng=_englisch

From Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden airport (aka Baden Airpark) Stuttgart is not on the route to Tuttlingen at all.

DB timetable

http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/en

From: Baden Airpark

To: Tuttlingen

From Tuttlingen station there are shuttle buses to the festival.

Best deal will be a Baden-Württemberg Ticket single (EUR 18,00). A day ticket covering all local trains and most other local public transport in the state Baden-Württemberg. This ticket will cover the complete trip from the airport to the festival grounds.

Even better if he can find some others doing the same. The mini group version (2-5 persons) is EUR 27,00.

You can enforce trips by local trains only by giving at the DB timetable as means of transport "only local transport". But as far I've seen, there are anway mostly connections with local trains only (S-Bahn, RB, RE, IRE, HZL).
