The following parking spaces are available in St. Goar:

 

For cars

  • Football field behind the primary school next to the harbour car park (do not park in the harbour car park itself!)
  • Designated parking spaces along the B9 in the city 
  • On the mountain side along the B9 towards St. Goar-Kernstadt, starting from the Gründelbachtal junction (L206)

 Turnaround and exit option: at the harbour car park

 

2. Closure of access roads


For safety reasons, the police will have to completely block access to St. Goar at some point. The full closure affects through road 9 between the St. Goar-Gründelbach entrance and the An der Loreley district. It is solely up to the police to decide when it’s time to block off traffic on the day of the event.
We therefore ask that you arrive early (before 6.00 p.m.)!

The roadblocks will be lifted by the police after the fireworks have finished. Do not drive on the B9 in the city before the police have done this – please wait!

 

3. St. Goar-St. Goarshausen Ferry

Before the fireworks, the ferry runs until about 7.00 p.m. as a regular shuttle service.

Cars wishing to use the ferry need to plan to do so by 6.00 p.m., as access to the ferry is also restricted once the B42 is blocked at 6.00 p.m. .

Visitors accessing the ferry on foot are requested to go to the side of the Rhine that they would like to remain on once the fireworks have ended; they should do so by no later than 7.00 p.m. After the fireworks, the shuttle service can only resume once the water police have given their approval – this can take until 11.00 p.m.

Afterwards, the Lorelei car and passenger ferry runs between the two cities during the night of Saturday and through to Sunday until 2.00 a.m.

 

4. St. Goar Tourist Information Office opening hours

The St. Goar Tourist Information Office is open on Friday, 18/09/2020 from 9.00 a.m. to 8 p.m. and on Saturday, 19/09/2020 from 10.00 a.m. to 11.00 p.m.

 


St. Goarshausen

Additional car parking spaces will be created in the city of St. Goarshausen. However, it is recommended that you arrive on time and not park your car directly in the city centre. This saves you a long search for a parking space and ensures a quicker journey home.

The tank ramp in Wellmich is also available as a parking area for cars coming from Koblenz. The grounds at the foot of the Lorelei rock are available for visitors coming from Wiesbaden. In addition, parking areas will be set up on the following footpaths within the city: on Wellmicher Straße from the B 274 junction up to the town exit going in the direction of Koblenz (on the mountain side), and on Nastätter Straße (B274) behind the railway underpass up to the town exit going in the direction of Nastätten.

In St. Goarshausen, various parking spaces will be suspended starting at 11.00 a.m. on the day of the event; they will be marked with no parking restrictions. The road users are requested to observe this modified signage, as otherwise the traffic flow cannot be maintained.

Certain sections of the road must be kept clear, especially if rescue services such as the fire brigade and the German Red Cross need to be deployed. To save yourself a fine or even towing costs, please check the changed signage when parking your vehicle and observe it accordingly.

As the road traffic authority, the Lorelei Municipal Administration kindly asks all road users and the general population for their understanding and mutual consideration when encountering traffic disruptions which will unfortunately be unavoidable during the event, and during the set-up and dismantling of stands in the event area.

 


Busparking spaces St. Goarshausen

Additional bus parking areas will be created as follows (there is an absolute ban on buses parking along the B42 in the city area):
- at the Lorelei school’s parking space and
- in the Forstbachstraße (bus park street) in St. Goarshausen

In order to set up the bus park street, it is necessary that one side of the L338 be closed from 2.00 p.m. to no later than midnight in the section that runs from K88 (Pionierweg Patersberg) up to junction B42 (St. Goarshausen Town Square). In the opposite direction, car traffic to Lorelei via the L338 will be permitted until 6.00 p.m. Starting at 2.00 p.m., traffic coming from Lorelei will be diverted to the B42 via Bornich, Weisel and Kaub. From 6.00 p.m. onwards, the aforementioned section of the route will be completely closed to through traffic.

Once the bus park street along the L338 is full, it is possible to park in the St. Goarshausen-Heide district. After the blockade (which lasts no later than midnight) is lifted, you can drive back to St. Goarshausen.
