Is there some parking place in the festival?
Yes, we have our own space for parking, which is only for festival participants (60CZK/festival). Parking space will be displayed on the map. However, the number of parking spaces are limited, so we recommend using a different type of transport or arriving on time 🙂 If our parking lot is full, it is difficult to park in Adrspach. Then, we recommend to use the parking lot in Teplice nad Metují next to the main railway station and continue to Adršpach by train. Please do not park in places that are not reserved for it, like along roads, meadows, cottages, parking bans, etc. Thank you for your understanding.
Sleeping place is on the castle grounds?
No. We have a tent town, which is located in the place right under the castle. The castle area have to be empty every day after midnight! The party will always continue in the Stodola, which is about 50 meters from the grounds. If you sleep in a van, we have a different parking space.
