The drive-me-home service
Service is a big priority on the Cannstatter Volksfest. An example is the drive-me-home service which is unique in Germany. With the exception of one year, it has been in operation on the Wasen ever since 1965.
The principle is as simple as it is successful:
The Volksfest visitor travels with his or her own vehicle to the Cannstatter Wasen. After having a pleasant time and one or a couple of large beers, the visitor can get a driver to drive them and their car back home. All one has to pay for is the taxi fare for the driver’s return journey.
The free-of-charge drive-me-home service is to be found in the so-called “Wasengebäude” belonging to the Volksfest organisers, the in.Stuttgart Veranstaltungsgesellschaft, which is next to the German Red Cross. For the duration of the Volksfest, it can be reached daily from 8.00 pm under the telephone number +49 711 9554-3333.
