By public transportations
The public transportations are very connected and are running till midnight. Look at the map of the streetcar etc.
The distance to the city centre is 10 min by car, but you need to find a parking place and need to pay. The parking at the festival venue is for free. A car might be helpful to make trips to the more beautiful lakes outside the city, the thermal bath, which is little outside in a forest, the “Kaiserstuhl”, 30 min by car, or the Black Forest, which is starting some minutes behind the city.
The public transportations and regional trains (www.bahn.de) help you as well to find these places.
