Arrival Information for W:O:A 2012
Certainly a lot of you are still packing their cases for the journey to the 23rd Wacken Open Air! Because of this we´ve summed up all important info about the journey.
Please consider the following:
-> If possible please use the attractive offerings from bus and railway
-> avoid peak times (also because of the evening rush hour in Hamburg) on Tuesday, 5pm to 7pm, Wednesday 3pm to 7pm and Thursday 11am to 1pm. So you’ll create a jam- and stress-free journey. -> Take attention of the conduction signs and the information on our well-known Wacken Mobile App.
Early Arrivals – Important!
As every year the official arrival date is Wednesday (the 1st of August) at 00:01 am! As already announced an early arrival is not possible before Tuesday, 31st of July – The same goes for people travelling without own vehicle. As every year there will be an extra fee for early-camping which amounts 10 EUR on Tuesday until 11:59pm
Advice to all users of navigation systems:
Only use navigation systems until you achieve the sign-posted travel route. From that point on you can trust our guidance-system. Much more important is this fact for your departure! Because then we are depend on the fact that not all of you hit the same freeway. So please follow our departure-advices, even if they look like a detour. Please use your navigation system not before you are on the freeway. At least this helps to prevent the traffic-jam in Northern Germany. ATTENTION: For the departure we use both, freeway A 23 and freeway A 7 as the route towards south-direction.
We also ask all bus companies to register at our bus tour portal woa-bus.kals.dewoa-bus.kals.de This makes the dispatch of the busses much easier and grants a continuous traffic flow. Same goes for the departure because every bus needs a pass which will only be handed out after registering in our bus portal. In case of questions write an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
-> Please have your tickets ready – Searching for tickets means hectic for you and waitingtime for all the others.
-> Please follow the instructions of the stewards and use the assigned areas. They gladly answer your question – after you parked your car.
-> Keep free traffic- and escape routes.
-> Keep in mind, that you have to follow the parking- and camping order at all areas.
We thank you for your support and wish you a relaxed and secure journey without any breakdowns.
See you in Wacken - rain or shine
