We will be visiting Baden-Baden on Sunday, May 18th. There are races on this day, we have never been to the horse races and are not sure what to expect. Should we buy the tickets at the facility or make reservations? What kind of dress can we expect? We have dinner reservations at the Zum Alde Got and where hoping to do some wine tasting prior to dinner. Any recomendations for vineyards?
we buy the tickets at the facility or make reservations?
Only if you plan on booking a table at a terrace with restaurant service. The other terraces are included in the admission. The common admission (Sattelplatz) is € 7,-- resp. € 11,-- on sunday.
>What kind of dress can we expect?
You'll see anything, from Jeans to designer clothes. Just put on anything you like, unless you'd book one of the more expenxive terrace tables. "Align the prices of clothing with the price of the table you booked", may be serving as a rule.:-)
>recomendations for vineyards?
All questions answered :-)
Have you organised transportation as the race course is not in Baden-Baden but in Iffezheim which is at some distance from Baden-Baden.
