Getting to Wernigerode is easy - whether by train or car. However, with three adults travelling and a lot of luggage as usual (my fault, I know), car was most convenient and least expensive. So I thought.

The first one was true - most convenient is right. Also, it gave us the flexibility to stop in Aschersleben on the way to and in Blankenburg on the way back. And drive to Goslar, fast and cheap.

However, driving in Wernigerode is a hassle since most of the old town is a pedestrian zone and where it is not they have one-way streets only. So, after finally finding the way to the hotel the shock was the price for the parking: Only parking in the hotel's garage was possible and that was 12 Euro per night. Yuck. And that was even the reduced price for hotel guests! You can imagine what someone pays who doesn't stay there ... and just wants to explore the town for a day. (Granted, maybe you find a cheap parking somewhere. But then it's definitely waaaay outside the old town.)

I recall one guy driving into the garage and complaining very loudly (and not in words I care to repeat here) about the price. 3 Euro for the first hour. LMAO
