Frequently asked questions

The festival is on the Campground Eichholz: Eichholz-Camping Strandweg 49 3084 Wabern www.campingeichholz.ch Overview of the slacklines: slackmap.com
The festival starts on Friday at 10:00 and ends on sunday evening around 17:00
Public transport: The easiest way to reach Eichholz from Bern railway station is by tram 9 in the direction of Wabern, station Eichholz (second to last). Then 600 metres on foot to the Aare. By car: If you are staying overnight with your tent at Camping Eichholz, you will be able to park right next to Eichholz. All others: try to park somewhere in Wabern in the Blue Zone. There is NO possibility to park at the campground unless you sleep there!
There are no entrance fees for the actual slackline festival, we are very grateful for a small donation to cover expenses. The campground's prices can be found here: www.campingeichholz.ch
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.
