We will not give the exact location address here, that will be given to you once you have registered. But other than that, find all the travel infos needed here.
The location is close to Bingen am Rhein.
The motorway exit to take is "Stromberg" on the A61.
Route instructions for the last couple of kilometers will be given to you after you have registered.
FRANKFURT AM MAIN
When arriving at Terminal 2, you first need to take the shuttle bus to Terminal 1.
Go to the regional train station (not the long-distance train one), which is located underground. Buying a ticket at the ticket machines sucks. You can use either the red ticket machines from Deutsche Bahn, or the blue ones marked "RMV". Should you have ended up in a part of the station where there only is a single ticket machine with long lines, just walk another 25 meters, and you'll find a whole bunch of them.
When buying the ticket, as target select "Bingen(Rhein) Hbf". The machine will ask you if you want to take a "detour" over Bad Kreuznach. No, you don't want that, but the straight (and cheaper) route. The tickets are not bound to a specific train.
"FRANKFURT" HAHN AIRPORT
The airport is in the middle of nowhere, and public transport is a multi-hour route. Your best bet probably is to book a rental car. Distance between the Airport and the party location is about 50km. Follow the car instructions above.
ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE TIMES
The "doors" open on Sunday at 16:00. In case you are arriving much earlier, we'd ask you to please stay on the camping grounds and to not unload your car until we are done setting up the party main area.
The party ends on Sunday at 14:00. By that time we will have to clear the main hall quite quickly. If you still some time left, you are most welcome to help. The camping grounds should be cleared by 18:00 latest.
Caravan / Mobile Home
If you are coming with a Caravan / mobile home, there will be dedicated parking. Please note that we will NOT have sewage. Park in a way that enables you to drive to a nearby Caravan parking place where sewage and water services are available.
If you are bringing a sleeping tent and want silence during the night, then setup your camp at the Silent Camping area - which is identical to caravan parking. It's a nice and even fluffy meadow.
If you want to be part of the party all night, you can also setup your tent at the "Hardcore Camping" site, which is located next to the lake, the main hall tent. It will be noisy during the night. Lasers may blind you. You have been warned. At UC9 the mean time it took people to re-think and migrate to the Silent Camping was 7 Minutes.
Sleeping in the main hall / non-tent
If you don't own or want to use a tent, you can also sleep in the main hall non-tent under a table. Please note that in case there is strong rain you'll be in trouble, as our roof isn't solid but meant to let through air. And rain. Also, the tent does not have any wooden floor, it's grass. So bring a proper mattress with you.
There is a dedicated area for parking cars. Please use that, and don't block space on the Caravan / Silent Camping areas.
If you wish to unload your car at the main hall tent so you don't have to carry your big tower PC around, or if you wish to unload your camping gear at the Hardcore Camping site, that's possible. However, please first park your car at the car park area, walk down to the main hall, and ask. There won't be much of an option to turn there, and we only want one car at the same time to unload. As soon as you have finished unloading, park your car at the car parking space again.
In general swimming in the lake is allowed. Feel also free to bring your floaties or rubber boat. However, the lake may look harmless, but is up to 10 meters deep. Also, we are running power lines through the sea to power some light installations in it.
Swimming and any activity on the lake is therefore only allowed during daytime, while we have scene life guards on duty.
The lake is full of life, and due to that has crystal clear water. We would like it to stay that way. Due to this, please do not use any kind of sun tan or other chemical substances before entering it.
You are welcome to bring any kind of bathing toy, as long as you make sure nothing sinks to the ground or is left behind in any way.
The southern part of the location is private property, and the owner is not happy if you trespass. Please stick to the parts of the location that are marked on the map above.
Open fires are not allowed. We'll have a bonfire at the Hüpfburg village.
Toilets, Freshwater and showering
The location does neither have running water nor a sewage connection. This means we'll have to improvise.
We will have clean water toilets available, but you will need to conserve water.
We'll have "Fake Shower" tent. This is using water pumped out of the lake. It therefore will be rather cold. Important: Please do not bring nor use your own shampoo or conditioner with you. We do not have waste water, so the used water will run back into the lake. We'll supply shampoo which is 100% biological and safe for the animals in the lake.
We have limited supply of fresh water. This can be used for brushing your teeth, supply your caravan etc. Drinking the water uncooked is not recommended.
Every morning we will be running a shuttle service to a private location in Bingen (scamp's company), where there are toilets and private showers available. This way every day or two once you will so dirty you need chemicals, you can use a "proper" shower and/or take your time for your "big business" on the toilets.
Drones & Lasers
You are welcome to bring your drone. However, in Germany it is illegal for whatever reasons to fly drones over solar fields, and there is a huge solar field next to it. Please either don't fly over it, or if you do, do not post videos showing that you did online.
Also, the location is in the flight path to Frankfurt Airport. Make sure no laser beams are going up to the sky, and follow regulations for drone usage.
According to German law, you are supposed to be smoking all the time. When registering, you'll be given a portable sealed ash tray. Please use it.
Inside the Hüpfburg village, strictly no shoes or any kind of sharp items. The includes and kind of goth clothings or piercings which may puncture the castles. Please do not consume any food or any kind of sticky liquid on the castles.
Getting rid of unsorted trash is pretty expensive in Germany. So in case you don't want your competition prize to be mixed garbage, please help us safe some money and to reduce the time until humanity has killed planned earth by 2 hours. We'll have three kinds of garbage bags: Yellow for clean plastic and packaging, brown for paper and cardboard, and red for any dirty garbage. Glas bottles will be collected in a box.
Please also read the additional rules for Anti-Corona safety!
