The store from Henrys is near the castle,
the whole sale is at the edge of the City.
On the other hand Henrys makes on every EJC a juggling store,
so it will be the same in Karlsruhe

Ryanair from London Stansted to Karlsruhe/Baden seems to come to about £67 including taxes.  Tried AirBerlin but it didn't seem to scan, perhaps it can't see that far into the future.

Can people find any cheaper flights?

It is worth checking from day to day, as the prices will vary from time to time - also the closer the flight if there are lots of places left it will get cheaper.
Flying on different days of the week will affect the price also, for example the cheapest Stansted to Karlsruhe/Baden an the 1st of August today was £15, but flying the day defore it's only £4.79!!

What won't change is the taxes which will be the constant part about £35 for the return trip.

Flying out on the 31st of July and back on the 12th of August you can grt the price down to a little over £45.

Also bear in mind that August is the School holidays, and prices are likely to go up the closer you get as availability decreases.

Seems quite cheap IMO, the whole 8 days could only cost about £250, including spending money.

Me 'n' Matt will be going. seems like it will be a great week!

Well, life is cheaper when you still live with your family :-P  £250 is just too large a punt for me at the time I'll have little money or security.

I'm just trying to cut all corners possible you see.  I thought taxes were a certain "percentage" of the flight price, I've seen it fluctuate I think.  But I will investigate more.

A few months ago a new airline set up to Germany that had silly cheap flights, but I'll be rogered if I can remember what they were called...  Apart from RyanAir and AirBerlin, do people know of any other airlines that are flying from the UK to Baden?

Perhaps you ask them directly,
the email adress of the air port is

info@baden-airpark.de

They surely could answer you in english

black light is like ultra violet light, they are cool and make white things glow etc...
i assume that the 'black light chill out zone' is just a place to chill out where there is a cool ultra violet light.

i know what a black light is, it makes white stuff pretty.

I guess it just seems kind of fun useless to have an area with black lights just so people can sit around and do nothing.
