„Das Fest“ in Karlsruhe: trams will be running more frequently
Due to the event of „Das Fest“ held in the Günther-Klotz-Anlage from Friday, July 19th until Sunday, July 21th, the transportation company “Verkehrsbetriebe Karlsruhe (VBK)” will have its trams drive more frequently and arrange night and circle lines so that the visitors may enjoy a trouble-free transportation with the public network.
-> Line 1 will drive with 10-minute intervals all day long between Durlach Turmberg and Oberreut Badeniaplatz.
At the beginning of the main concerts, additional trams will be available on all three days of the festival:
-> Line 1 will run daily between 5:00 pm and 9:00 pm from “Mühlburger-Tor” over “Schillerstraße” and “Weinbrennerplatz” to the Europahalle.
-> Line 2 will also run daily between 6:00 pm and 9:00 pm with the support of emergency vehicles. Thus, the trip from the main station through Welfenstrasse to the Center of Art and Media (ZKM) in Karlsruhe will be better.
-> From 9:00 pm until 1:00 am, the additional trams will be running until the end of the main concerts from Badeniaplatz to the Europahalle through Schillerstrasse, Europaplatz, Marktplatz, Kronenplatz, Rüppurrer Tor, Konzerthaus, Mathystrasse, Arbeitsagentur, ZKM, Welfenstrasse to the main station (Haupt-bahnhof Vorplatz).
-> The nightly 30-minute intervals of line 5 will be turned into a 20-minute interval on all three nights of the festival. Thus, the transportation connections after 11:30 pm will be better. Furthermore, the operating times of this line will be extended until 1:30 am on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night.
