ARRIVAL / DEPARTURE – TRAVEL INFO

ATTENTION: This post may contain details for the 2022 festival, an update for 2023 will follow.

International travel information by the German state can be found HERE.

On Tuesday the entrance corridors will already open at 10:00 and stay open until 22:00 in the evening.
In the night from Tuesday to Wednesday it won’t be possible to access the campsite, but on Wednesday we will open at 08:00 again, this time all the way through to Sunday.

All those who wish to arrive a day earlier for SUMMER BREEZE may do so during the 12-hour time window on Tuesday. However, we have to charge those arriving early a contribution towards logistical costs per person, because it wouldn’t be fair that the additional costs (personnel, rent, etc.) are carried by all campers, but only those arriving early. On Sunday, the site has to be cleared by 14:00. The daily parking lot will be open from 09:00. We will put up signs around the entire Dinkelsbühl area to guide you to the campsite, parking lots and festival site!

PLEASE NOTE:
 Due to traffic restrictions, it will be impossible for you to leave the campground by car once you have entered it, from Tuesday until Thursday afternoon. If needed, the shuttle bus will give you a lift to the city centre of Dinkelsbuehl free of charge.
On Saturday it will not be possible to access the campsite by car from 18:00. People arriving by car after that time will be diverted to the day parking lot.

DISABLED PEOPLE / WHEELCHAIRS

ATTENTION: This post may contain details for the 2022 festival, an update for 2023 will follow.

We are constantly trying to improve the service for our disabled visitors in order to make the festival as comfortable and barrier-free as possible for them.
Seriously disabled visitors with a G (significant walking disability), AG (exceptional walking disability), B (need of constant care), H (helplessness) or BL (blindness) in their handicapped ID will receive a free ticket for their accompanying person at the Check In SV Sinbronn. It’s important that disabled visitors present a valid ticket as well as their handicapped ID with one of the aforementioned marks.
As in the last few years, there is going to be a special platform incl. wheelchair accessible toilet for wheelchair users at the open-air stages.

CAMPING / PARKING / CAMPING EQUIPMENT / CARS

ATTENTION: This post may contain details for the 2022 festival, an update for 2023 will follow.

Regular camping is included in the festival ticket price.
Add-Ons like reserved camping, comfort camping, caravan camping and handicapped camping are available in our shop.

There will be enough parking and camping space available. You may park your car right next to your tent. Camping is not permitted without the purchase of a festival ticket. Therefore, please make use of the official parking and camping areas.
The daily parking area can be found just across the street of the campsite entrance. You may also park your car in that area while camping on the campsite separately, but wish to make sure you can move your car at any time.
Only vehicles with a weight not exceeding 3.5 tons will have access to the campground. This also applies to caravans and mobile homes. Trailers which can only be towed by a tractor or lorry will not be allowed on the campsite. The same goes for tractors and generally all motorized two wheel vehicles as well as quad bikes and trikes.

GAS CYLINDERS:
Trailers and campers shall not bring gas cylinders exceeding 11kg. Please make sure your equipment is in good working condition and that you use it in an appropriate way. Any misuse may have fatal consequences. We believe this needs no further explanation.

GENERATORS:
If you plan on taking a generator with you onto the site, please make sure it is in good working condition and that it is not leaking oil or fuel. A maximum of 20 litres of fuel in an appropriate canister are allowed per vehicle. We trust you will handle this matter in an appropriate way and that it needs no further explanation or discussion. From 1 a.m., all aggregates need to be turned off for nighttime peace. There is a ban on generators in the GREEN CAMPING area!

Camping outside the official camping area is prohibited. Doing so will be fined!

The order how the campground is set up.

DISTANCES ON THE CAMPGROUND:

FIRE / GRILLS

Open fire is strictly prohibited throughout the entire camping and festival site. Camping stoves and barbecue grills are allowed. All grills and stoves MUST be set up on their corresponding stands on firm ground. Coal trays must not be in contact with the ground.
Disposable grills are only allowed with fireproof base (e.g. an old baking tray).
Due to some serious accidents which have resulted in life threatening injuries, we expressly urge you to exercise extreme caution when using fire starters to light charcoal barbecues! Oil lamps are not allowed on the festival site! The same applies to firewood and cressets!

ARRIVAL IN GROUPS / SAVING CAMPING SPACE FOR FRIENDS

Please follow the instructions of our personnel, so the filling of the saved space hopefully works quickly and without problems.

Ideally you should always keep right with your group when arriving (even before the security corridors); try to use the corridors on the right as well, and stay right when driving onto the campsite. (Our tip: Meet at a parking on the Autobahn before the exit to Dinkelsbühl and then drive together as far as possible.)

Additional advice for drivers of large vehicles (e.g. mobile homes) or cars with trailers (including caravans):
Please also try to keep right, as the corridors on the far right are wider and will be easier for you to pass through.
Motorcyclists are also asked to use the corridors on the right, as they are closer to the motorcycle parking lot.

BAN ON GLASS

There is a ban of glass at Summer Breeze. We will strictly check each car entering the site. Our security will also check the camping grounds during the festival days. Please have understanding and avoid bringing any kind of glass containers.
This includes all food and drink containers made of glass, regardless of the use they are given (e.g. tobacco in a preserving jar). Due to the high accident and fire hazard, oil (kerosene/paraffin) lamps are prohibited too! Perfume flacons, medicine bottles and shishas are allowed.
Best thing to do is to pour all liquids into plastic containers. Please take this issue seriously – otherwise we will face massive problems in getting access to appropriate camping grounds in the future!

GREEN CAMPING

As is known from the rules in the past years, a peaceful, considerate and ecological behaviour is paramount in this camping area, so there’s a special set of rules for GREEN CAMPING:

– Strict observance of the nighttime peace from 1:00am to 7:00am
– Prohibition of aggregates and other sources of noise (car hifi use only at a moderate volume)
– Strict waste separation and disposal
– Self dependent cleaning of the used camping grounds
– Consideration with camping neighbours
– Sensible use of water supplies in showers and toilets

At GREEN CAMPING we depend on your active help.

Only registered people will have access to GREEN CAMP. Access is not granted without a valid pass, meaning it is not possible to invite people from the “regular” campsite into the GREEN CAMP area.
There will be a special entrance to this separate, closed off area.

Fact check GREEN CAMPING:
– GREEN CAMPING is free
– Special closed off camping area
– There is no limit on the number of cars, but obviously not everyone should be arriving in their own (ecobalance!)
– A separate parking ticket must be purchased on site for each car.
– Besides the camping reservation, a separate parking ticket must be purchased in advance  on site with an extra charge.
– It is possible to keep camping space free for people arriving later
– Strict observance of the nighttime peace from 1:00am to 7:00am
– Prohibition of aggregates and other sources of noise (instruments etc., car hifi use only at a moderate volume)
– Strict waste separation and disposal: the GREEN CAMPING ground must be free of waste at all times, and the collected waste must be separated for recycling
– Self dependent cleaning of the used camping grounds
– Consideration with camping neighbours
– Sensible use of water supplies in showers and toilets
– GREEN CAMPING relies and depends on the responsibility of the people who make use of it. We hope for some intra-group control. If anyone acts flagrantly against the GREEN CAMPING philosophy they lose the right of access and have to camp on the regular campsite. In case of gross misconduct, we reserve the right to expel the person in question from the festival altogether!
– There will be an appropriate number of portable toilets and urinals in the GREEN CAMPING area for use free of charge. There will be paid showers right next to the GREEN CAMPING area.
– Only tents and gazebos with no added elements are allowed.
– Big furniture elements such as armchairs, sofas, beds and refrigerators are not allowed.
– GREEN CAMP users agree to take their whole tents and camping equipment with them on the day of their departure and to dispose of their whole waste separately (recycling-ready) at the GREEN CAMPING waste disposal station.

GARBAGE

We ask you for your kind help to address the garbage situation.

WASTE STATIONS and SEPARATION OF WASTE – LESS TRASH, MORE THRASH!


Please also make sure you keep your camping space tidy during your entire stay in your own interest.

Please make sure you do not leave any metal items such as tent pegs in the ground. Leaving furniture harms the festival immensely due to high disposal costs.

MUSIC ON THE CAMPGROUND / NIGHTTIME PEACE

Music and party on the campground are essential parts of the festival, but please be reasonable and respect your neighbors. We´d like to remind you to shut down your generators at 1AM to reduce the noise.

PARKING TICKET

In order to park a motor vehicle on the campsite, a parking ticket must be purchased per vehicle and per trailer. This ticket is only sold on site.
There is also a charge to park on a separate day parking lot.
The above applies to all motor vehicles with an internal combustion engine (i.e. cars, motorcycles, caravans, etc.).
Those arriving on Tuesday must pay an extra 10 Euro contribution towards logistical costs per person. You can purchase your parking tickets from our parking ticket sales team, who will be located between the festival bracelet collection point and the security control corridors. That means, first you go to exchange your ticket for a festival bracelet and then you buy the parking ticket for your vehicle at the entrance to the security control corridors.

RETURNABLE BOTTLES AND CANS

This year we are again collaborating with the Aalen-based NGO Govinda Entwicklungshilfe e.V. Please support them by putting your empty returnable bottles and cans into the bins they place on the festival site. This way each of you can decide how much you wish to support Govinda.
Govinda volunteers will also be out collecting empty returnables. They will be wearing coloured Govinda shirts and an identification. Should anyone identify themselves as returnables collector or collect returnables unasked, please inform the staff at the Govinda info stand near the entrance to the festival site or at the sorting station close to the security camp. There you can also donate your returnables or just stop by for a chat.
Unauthorized collection of returnables is not permitted on the festival site!

RESERVING CAMPING SPACE

Information about the additional camping option RESERVED CAMPING SPACE is available HERE.
