The main galleries of the Staatliche Kunsthalle contain many known artists from the Netherlands, early Renaissance, and a scattering of French and German from the 19th and early 20th ecentury. Later 20th century works are in the Orangeries. Both buildings are excellent venues, the Orangeries in particular. As other reviewers have noted, one gallery displays a large group of paintings from 17th and 18th century as they would probably have displayed at an earlier time - that's the point, it's not a mistake. There are several epic scale paintings depicting Baden princes in combat against the Ottoman Turks. While there are only a few French pre- and post- Impressionists, they are really worth seeing as well as some of their contemporaries from Germany. There are some excellent post WWI paintings by Kandinsky, Baumeister, Nolde, and Dix. One of the Dix paintings from 1933 has the most scathing depiction of Hitler I have ever seen.
Parking garages are easily accessed - under the entry gardens to the Schloss or a short way into the city.
