BERN CITY SLACK

Festival

Summer is coming and the “Bern City Slack Festival” 2022 is already being planned! We're looking forward to the 13. Edition of the biggest Swiss Slackline Festival from the 26th to 28th of August. 

From beginners to movement professionals: Everyone is welcome! Interested newbies can discover the sport and try their hand at balancing on different slacklines. For more experienced slackliners we offer interesting challenges with many extraordinary slacklines. Again there will be workshops on various subjects. With the contests there will be a lot of fun and action! The festival is, as always, free of charge.

On the Camping Eichholz, where the festival takes place. Normal prices apply. A reservation to secure your spot is recommended.
From 16 years with your signature at the entrance, younger children must be accompanied by an adult.
Whoever participates in the activity or is on the premises with the tensioned slacklines, has to obey certain rules. Participation is under your own risk. Every slackliner has to sign the waiver on location. Insurance is the participants own responsibility. The slacklines are rigged safely and to the best of our knowledge. The most important rules for an accident-free festival are:
  • All setups may only be manipulated by the organiser (e.g. tensioning and detensioning of slacklines).
  • When a slackline is in use, keep your distance. (Slacklines should never be crossed)
  • Children under the age of 16 need written permission from their parents. The parents are responible to ensure that their children recognise the dangers and are supervised (responsibility is with the parents).
  • Slackliners only mount lines, that are adequate for their skill level. People who can’t manage a short and low line, have no business going on a high longline.
Publibike allows you to rent bikes all around town, perfect for a quick trip to the centre. Guests of the campground get free public transport tickets.
