History

The construction of Baden Airpark began in December 1951 at a location between the Black Forest and the Rhine River under the supervision of French Air Force. The runway and associated facilities were completed by June 1952. The airfield was granted to Canadian forces and became a military base, CFB Baden-Soellingen, from 1953 until 1993.

The newly founded Baden Airpark GmbH took over the airport in 1995 and the first commercial flight took place on May 17, 1997, to Palma de Mallorca, Spain.

Technically the airport is part of Baden Airpark, which also includes facilities for both business and leisure. The latter includes an 18-hole golf course and an enclosed ice rink (both originally part of the Canadian base). From that time stems the name Baden Söllingen, which locals use to denote the airport.

Public ground transportation

The airport can be reached by local public bus links from the Baden-Baden train station and Rastatt train station. There are also regular long distance bus services from Offenburg, Freiburg im Breisgau, Strasbourg, Mannheim, Heidelberg and Frankfurt-Hahn Airport.
