The location is called "Genheimer Weiher", but it's pretty secret - even locals don't know it exists. And it's not even in Genheim.
The location is located at 49.948811, 7.813209.
Exit A61 at "Stromberg". Follow signs to Waldalgesheim. After 1,5km you will see a huge solar farm on the right-hand side. Right after the end of the solar field, you'll spot a UC9 road sign on the right side of the road. Turn right into the path. You'll see further UC9 signs. Follow them.
Should you be coming from Bingen, drive to Waldalgesheim. After the end-of-town street sign drive another 500 Meters, and then make a left. Again, there will be a UC9 sign (this time on the left side of the street).
Direct Intercity trains go to Bingen from both Frankfurt and Hamburg every two hours. There also RegionalExpress trains (operated by SüWex and VLEXX) and local trains (Mittelrheinbahn / Transegio). Make sure to book to "Bingen(Rhein) Hbf". Do not exit at the "Bingen(Rhein) Stadt" (City) station.
When coming from Frankfurt or Frankfurt Airport:
Once per hour there is a "RegionalExpress (RE2 line)" train going to Koblenz via Bingen directly, without many stops and really nice trains. The trains are white and marked "Süwex". This is the best option.
The second best option is to take the the RegionalExpress RE3 line, which goes to Saarbrücken. These are shitty blue Diesel trains operated by VLEXX. You'll have to change trains. The ticket machine will tell you to change in Mainz, but don't do that, as it involves running to another track to manage to get the connecting train. Instead stay inside the train and exit in Ingelheim. About 10 minutes after leaving there, at the same track there will be a Mittelrheinbahn/Transregio train arriving, heading for Bingen/Koblenz/Köln. Take that one. Do not exit at "Bingen(Rhein) Stadt" (city station), but "Bingen(Rhein) Hbf" (Hauptbahnhof / central station).
If you are coming with a long-distance train to Frankfurt, you can also instead of the regional trains use the Intercity line, which runs every 2 hours.
When arriving at the train station, grab a Taxi. The Taxi driver will have no clue where "Genheimer Weiher" is, and probably will take you to the town of Genheim, which is wrong. Tell the taxi driver to drive to Waldalgesheim and go straight through it. After the end-of-town sign ("Ortsausgangsschild") he needs to keep driving for exactly 500 Meters, and then make a left. There will be a UC9 road sign on the left side of the street to look out for. Then have him follow the signs to the car parking area. The Taxi trip should cost about 15-20 Euros.
Airplane - 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. The red ticket machines from Deutsche Bahn often are not able to issue the tickets needed. Instead use 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.
Airplane - "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 Thursday 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 hall. Please don't be a gender-neutral pussy to arrive on Friday. Join us for the full time!
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 Hardcore camping Grounds also need to be cleared by then, unless you wish for the tent company truck to run over it. The silent 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 follow the signs. We'll have power available - please bring a 25 Meter extension cord. Please note that we neither have running fresh water nor sewage. We recommend you fill up water before arriving. If you need fresh water, bring a watering can with you.
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 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.
Sleeping in the main hall
If you don't own or want to use a tent, you can also sleep in the main hall tent under your table. Please note that the tent does not have any wooden floor, it's grass. So bring a proper mattress with you.
Sleeping in the Hüpfburg village
In case the weather is stable and you like to sleep under the stars, you can also sleep inside the Hüpfburg Village.
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 trespas. 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 have so called "nature toilets" available. These look like regular toilets, but don't have running water. Instead after having done your duty, you grab some bark mulch and cover your shit with it. The contents of the toilets will be used as dung. Therefore please don't put in anything chemicals or tampons or things like that into it. If you just need to pee, hitting the bushes is a good alternative.
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.
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.
