A designated parking space will be signposted there. From there you can easily reach the festival via public transportation, by feet or a shuttleservice subject to a fee.
In the proximity of the Festival you find various possibilities to absorb the beauty of the place and to conquer the challenge of the surrounding mountains’ wild beauty as well of local culture.
In this matter we also count on our guests’ sensibility and respect for the unique natural and cultural landscape.

A quite impressive natural spectacle you can find in the nearby canyon of Rio Novella, that has dug deep into the mountain, with its waterfalls springing from a well at Gampenpass. It can be easily reached via the “Cascata”-path.

The Area provides an extensive and beautiful campsite.
For the camping area is placed on pasture meadows it is very important that no fragmented stuff stays behind that possibly endanger grazing cows (that means a total ban of glass bottles!).
We have to restore the meadows to their original state, so please remember that and put all your waste in the provided garbagecans and ashtrays on the site.
The campsite can not be entered by car.
Campfires on the camping area (and elsewhere on the festival site) are forbidden due to the high risk of forest fires.
Everybody there needs to relax sometimes and there is enough programme at the stages. So please don’t use any aditional soundsystems at the campsite.
The camping area is open from Wednesday 12 noon till Monday 12 noon!
For we are situated on an altitude of 1500 m inmidst of forests, it is extremely important to show consideration of each other. Please help each other and turn to one of our staff members at the bar, the food plaza, ticket office or the entrance if at some point you don’t know what to do.
The area is close to the busy mountain pass. The traffic will be slowed down but we wish to advise you to be allert there, especially in the night time.
It’s not quite safe to stray around the surroundings of the festival site in the night times, for it is surrounded by some steep and rocky walls. So please restrain the high spirits out there and go for security.
Since most of the area is situated in the mountain forests please be aware of continous danger of forest fires. Therefore we strictly have to prohibit use of every kind of open fire.
Furthermore we would like to advise you to dispose your cigarette butts into the provided ashtrays. You can pick up free ashtrays at your arival at the entrance. Please don’t dispose your butts just anywhere. Pocket ashtrays should just work fine!

Unfortunately there are only a limited number of parking lots on site. If it should happen that the parking sites are filled the parking sites at Unsere Liebe Frau im Walde must be used.
