If you are flying - the best way is to go with Ryanair to Karlsruhe Baden and get a taxi to the Baden Baden train station. Actually there are not many taxis if you land in the evening or that many train services connecting you. If you drive, you can hire a car. Here is the airport information. You can also fly Easyjet and arrive at Mulhouse and take the train to Strasbourg.
Hotel rooms are scarce because not only are there over 100 Freedom Drive attendees, it also happens to be European parliament week. Many of the hotels are booked solid. Including the ones in neighbouring German town Kehl. There are youth hostels in Strasbourg - Rene Cassin has not got accessible facilities although I met several Freedom Drivers who stayed there in 2005. It is accessible through the tramway.
