Traveling by Car
Coming from the east (via Wertheim): Once you enter Miltenberg on Mainstrasse, you will see the primary Main Bridge on your right. About 350 meters past this bridge, you will see on the left a bus stop sign at the mouth of a little lane (big green H). Turn left onto this lane and drive as far up as you can. Walk up the remainder of the lane to the pedestrian zone; the Alte Rathaus will be just to the left, directly on the pedestrian zone. It is an extremely tall pink stone building.
Coming from the North/West (down the B469 from Aschaffenberg): Once you enter Miltenberg on Mainstrasse, you will eventually see the main city church on your right, at the riverside edge of the old town. about 100 meters past this church you will see on the right a bus stop sign at the mouth of a little lane (big green H). Turn right onto this lane and drive as far you can fit your car. Park. Walk up the remainder of the lane to the pedestrian zone; the Alte Rathaus will be just to the left, directly on the pedestrian zone. It is an extremely tall pink stone building.
Free-of-charge parking spots are available on the access ramp to the neogothic Main Bridge (Mainbrücke), as well as on the ridge of the hill near the hostel (Burgweg). Otherwise, there are parking lots right there on the Main that cost 5 EUR per day, from 9:00-19:00 (seven days a week). After 19:00 parking in these lots is free-of-charge. There is also a big lot right across the street from the Church, on the Main, that is normally reserved for buses in tourist season, but is filled with cars in the off-season.
Event Site Entry
The event site main entrance is in a pedestrian zone. If you are sleeping at the hostel, you might want to proceed there first to drop off items before checking in at the event site or finding parking.
You should not drive directly up and park near to the building unless you wish to risk paying a 30 EUR fine. There is, however, a narrow lane that leads almost up to the pedestrian zone, putting you within a 30 meter walk of the front doors. If you do drive, park in the lane, unload your items and carry them up to the Rathaus as speedily as possible so that other people can get into the lane. Deposit them inside the door right there in the lower hall, then go and move your car to a parking spot.
