Utopia Camping also provides you and your friends with tents and camping equipment. Visit their website for further information and to book now.

Card payment
Waldmark can be purchased using EC card. The next ATM is in the village Wehdem nearby about 15 minutes walking distance.

Cellphone charging
At the Bootschaft near the entry checks at the lake you can charge your cellphone for a small fee.

There are also charged powerbanks sold at the Bootschaft.

Electricity generators
It is allowed to use electricity generators as long as they don’t disturb anyone.

Energy camping
To enjoy our Festivals even more comfortably, we offer you a reserved camping space (approx. 7 x 8 m) with own electricity connection and a support by our electrician.

A registration for Wonderland 2019 will be possible from May 2019.

Fire / barbecue
Due to laws of fire prevention it is not allowed to make a campfire, use fireworks or sky lanterns.

There are big campfires for everyone and places designated for barbecue.

Food
At our festivals there is a diverse selection of food stands. The offer always varies a little, there is usually fried potatoes, pizza, pasta and rice dishes, fries, falafel, burgers and much more to eat. For ecological and ethical reasons we have decided to offer only organic vegetarian and vegan food at the stands! But of course you can bring to the campsite and cook whatever you want. If you want to have a barbecue, you can do so at the designated barbecue areas on the campsite.

Graffiti & Confetti
Graffiti, markers and confetti may not be brought to any of our events! It is simply too much work to get rid of the garbage and paintings. Confetti also causes unnecessary environmental pollution. If you are interested in participating as graffiti artist you are welcome to apply and contact us. However, it is not permitted to bring spray cans and markers with you without permission!


Lost and Found
If you have lost something on the festival please send us a description to lostandfound@wald-frieden.de.

During the festival you can ask for lost stuff at the Infobude.

Luggage / What can I bring with me?
You can take as many drinks and food as you like to the camping site. But on the festival area only plastic bottles are allowed, no glass bottles or cans!

Please leave fireworks, confetti and graffiti cans completely at home.

Reduced Admission
Hai in den Mai and Wonderland are eligible for the following discounts:

Guests over 60 years of age do not pay admission.

Wheelchair users and guests who are dependent on an accompanying person because of dissabilites can bring one accompanying person who will get free admission.

Road toll
In order to keep the car traffic on the site as low as possible, we have to charge a car toll of 10€ for every vehicle (no matter if motorbike or caravan) entering the site! The fee is not a one-time fee for the festival, but is due every time you drive through the entrance to the camping site! We have only one single-lane road for several hundred vehicles available. The fee is intended to ensure that not everyone goes shopping in the village with their car, but only when it is really necessary, so that there is no traffic jam and the access and escape routes remain clear.

For each sofa you bring with you, you will have to pay an additional 5€ disposal fee, because in the past we had too many sofas left on the camp site.

Showers / water
There are free cold showers and warm showers for a small charge. There are also many drinking water taps on the festival area. Check the map for the exact locations.
Shuttle Bus
From train stations Lemförde and Rahden there is a free bus shuttle service to Waldfrieden available. The busses drive very frequently during the main departure and arrival times.

The exact schedule will be available here some weeks before the festivals.

Silent Camp
This year you will find a special area on the campsite for those who want to enjoy as much peace and silence as possible at their sleeping place.
At the Silent Camp music and other loud noises should be avoided! Generators are also not allowed here.

Waldmark
Waldmark is the currency on the Waldfrieden festivals. Waldmark is not redeemable!

Waldmark can be exchanged at a rate one to one (1:1) for Euro at the Tauschbar and Infobude. You can exchange Waldmark using cash or EC card.

On the festival area all food and drinks can only be payed with Waldmark. Everything else like clothes can also be bought using Euro.

Why Waldmark?
Waldmark makes it much easier for us to organise the money transfer on the festival and accelerates the process at the bars.
For you the advantages of Waldmark are that you can easily set yourself a spending limit and no one has to walk around with big amounts of cash on the festival.

Attention:
Waldmark is not redeemable!

Wardrobe
A wardrobe where you can leave your jackets or bags can be found at the Infobude and at the Bootschaft!
