Travel Information

Please note:

Your BUGA admission ticket, which will be sent to you as a pdf file at the beginning of August, includes public transport (bus and tram) to and from the BUGA from the entire VRN (Verkehrsverbund Rhein-Neckar) area (the transportation area around Mannheim). So you can travel with that ticket to our venue from your hotel and back, for example.

By train:
From Mannheim Hbf (central station) continue by tram line RNV6 or 9 or BL (BUGA 23-Luisenparklinie) (direction Neuostheim) to the station Luisenpark/Technoseum (opposite the main entrance of Luisenpark), travel time approx. 10 min.

By car:
If you are travelling by car, we strongly recommend using the large Park & Ride car park at the Maimarkt. There are no parking facilities for private visitors around the two BUGA exhibition sites. The signposting on the surrounding motorways and trunk roads will guide you to the car park..
A shuttle bus runs between the Spinelli grounds and the car park and Luisenpark. Follow the signs "Luisenpark (BUGA 23)" of the P+R buses when boarding. Or take the tramway Line 6 or BL (direction Mannheim Hbf)

The distance from the car park across the bridge to the bus stop is approx. 250m. Please be at the bus stop before 09:00.
The parking ticket for one day costs € 8.50 in advance online sales and € 9.50 directly at the car park.
