It is not permitted to enter and to use the campground without the premise mentioned above. Fees for undesigned acquired tickets in advance are not refundable.

Instructions of the supervisors are to be followed. Tents are to be set up that interference and annoyances are. The access to the sanitary facilities must be possible at any time.
6. Due to regulatory reason it is not permitted to set up pavilion tents and party tents.
It’s not about the size of these tents, but the wind load. Pavilion and party tents have a too large attack surface for the wind – the wind blows under these tents and tears them from their anchorage. Despite 70 cm long soil nails last year a wind gust has torn a 5 by 5 meter pavilion so that it is flown over the entire festival area.
In particular, inexpensive party tents are very susceptible to wind. Hurtling rails and sleepers are very dangerous and therefore for safety reasons, the setup of pavilion and party tents is banned by the authorities.
7. Campground, access routes and the directly vicinity are to be kept clean and tidy with respect to other users.
8. Naked flames/campfires are not permitted! It is not allowed to barbecue with charcoal on the entire campsite. Gas barbecue is allowed, however they must have been tested.

The entire Loreley plateau is a landscape conservation area that belongs to the UNESCO World Heritage site. Over the next years tens of millions of Euro will be invested into this extraordinary location to preserve nature and landscape and to make this legendary rock even more impressive.
We also strive to preserve the beauty of the terrain, but we are dependent on the help and support of festival visitors. The natural terrain can only be kept clean with high personnel expenditure. On long term the use of machines would destroy the terrain structure.
Therefore we charge 5.00 € from each camper. On arrival each camper receives a garbage bag and a charge tag. You can hand over the well filled garbage bag on Sunday from 08:00 to 12:00 h at the designated collection points. Additional festival waste can be delivered to the collecting points at any time. We can insure that your garbage will be taken to the landfill and we care for a final professional disposal.
Especially hard-working garbage collectors will receive a merchandise surprize!
Be sure we do everything we can to preserve nature in this exceptional location. We are grateful for your support.
