Like every year, a parking fee of 5 € must be paid when entering the car park. Please have the exact amount ready.
The German Road Traffic Act (StVO) applies on the entire festival grounds.
Please note that the car park is not supervised.
Parking spaces will be allocated, please follow the instructions of Security at all times. In the interests of all visitors, it is important to leave the access roads as quickly as possible. Parking and camping are separate. To ensure the comfort of all visitors, all car parks on the grounds of the Störmthaler See will be transformed into campsites, and the car parks will be moved to the surrounding area. This will lead to a few changes, which you should consider when planning your trip: A special parking area/campsite will be set up for camper vans, caravans and self-designed sleeper vehicles, which will require a “camper sticker”.
No types of trailers that are attached behind a car are allowed on the campsite (not even temporarily) and must be parked in the car park.
IF YOU HAVE A BREAKDOWN
In the event of a breakdown please first contact the traffic management service. At certain times, quick breakdown help can be arranged on-site in cooperation with the ADAC, subject to a charge. To make it easier to find your broken-down car in the dark, please switch on the hazard lights of your car or a neighbouring vehicle.
Motorbike riders may use the caravan spaces free of charge (i.e. they may park their bike next to their tent).
IN SEVERE WEATHER
ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE
If the parking spaces have become very wet due to persistent rain, we request that you drive as carefully as possible across these spaces when arriving and departing.
We will always try to provide you with the best possible parking space, but we also rely on your cooperation. Please always follow the instructions of our staff and have patience in the event of any unexpected delays when parking or departing.
Unfortunately, bad weather can sometimes cause one or two cars to get stuck. In the event of persistent rain that affects the driveability of the grounds, we can contact a tow truck at your request, free of charge. In such cases, please ensure that you comply with the following:
- The tow trucks organised by use are marked accordingly: the drivers wear jackets bearing our logo, the trucks bear a flag with our logo, and a number.
- The tow trucks organised by us DO NOT accept any money! (Should you notice a tow truck that is not marked, and/or which demands payment, please note the registration number and inform us immediately via our social media channels!)
- Prepare the tow bar on your car and switch on your hazard lights.
- Have patience -> if it is really wet, the tow truck organise by us must also work carefully, and cannot tow everyone at once.
- We accept no liability for towing vehicles – even though we establish the contact, the towing process occurs at your own responsibility and at the risk of the visitor.
