Documentation Center

In addition to the rock marathon on the stages, we recommend to take the time to learn more about the historical background of the former “Reichsparteitagsgelände” in the Documentation Center. You can find further information about the museum here.

Environmental protection

Please leave the camping area as clean as you found it. There will not be a waste deposit anymore because the offers and commitment involved were not used in adequate extent. However we ask you to help the environment with recycling and waste separation. Please use the waste containers provided and keep your area clean. At the same time we will increase our efforts to keep the festival clean and to dispose waste appropriately.

Keep in mind that on the other days of the year the whole festival site is a recreation area for the local residents of the city and additionally habitat for many animals and plants (click here for more information). Especially the shore area and the reed belt is a breeding ground for rare bird species. Damages on the flora (trees, bushes) and the endangerment or even tormenting of animals are instantly reported to the police (property damage) and lead to the immediate exclusion from the event. Every pile of trash you leave unnoticed will endanger the location of the festival and negatively affects the environment.

Please report violations immediately. We count on you!

"Umwelt Rocky" Contest

In 2009 we brought to life the first “Umwelt Rocky“-Contest in cooperation with our partner of Parkrocker. “Umwelt Rocky” is a prize for the tidiest left camping place and will be awarded by Parkrocker in 2019 again. And it is such an easy job: Leave your camp site as clean as possible and document and capture the maintenance with some pictures. To take part simply post your photos with the hashtag #umweltrocky on Instagram or in the „Parkrocker“forum.
