NOTP 2023: On-site map, ferry, camping, last minute tickets and more …

To help you find your way around this year, we have put together some information for you.


The WiV ticket shop will be sending out tickets until Monday 10 July. After that, you still have the possibility to buy tickets in advance via Eventim with the print-at-home function. On all three festival days there will be enough tickets at the box office. You can also upgrade your tickets there (for example, if you only have a Friday ticket but want to be there for two or three days).
IMPORTANT: For technical reasons, only cash payment is possible at the box office on the festival grounds.


Caravan camping will finally take place on the flatter meadow again and is therefore also closer to the festival site. You can also do your camping check-in closer to the festival site! There will be enough toilets and showers with up-to-date technical equipment on the camping site and the use of these is already included in the camping tickets. Further information can be found in the Camping FAQ on the website.

Chairs on the festival grounds

Chairs with legs are only allowed in the upper part on the lawn (to the right of the entrance). In the area of the amphitheater (auditorium), seat cushions and seat aids WITHOUT legs may be used. It is mandatory that all escape routes (e.g. the stairs in the auditorium) are kept clear at all times. If you have questions, you can also ask the security there.


The merchandise stand and the area for the signing sessions will be located near the “old” entrance this year. You will get more information about the signing sessions during the weekend!

Bus / Shuttle

There is a standard bus line (535) operated by the local public transport company and there is the Loreley Shuttle Service. They offer a bundle for all three days plus single day fares. You can then drive up and down as many times as you want. Buy tickets here or on site.
Please note: Shuttle buses operate until 30 min after the last show each day!


As already announced in the detailed procedures for Friday and Saturday, the car ferry will bring all cars back across the Rhine on these days after the end of the last show.
For operational reasons, only the passenger ferry can run on Sunday after the end of the show. This means: You leave your cars on the other side of the Rhine in St. Goar on Sunday and take the shuttle bus up to the festival grounds and then down again. As the ferry is only operated by one person, we have to charge the fare in advance. We therefore ask everyone who uses the ferry to St. Goar on Sunday evening (after 10pm) to pick up their ticket at the box office for €3 per person. The ferry will bring you to the other side after the final show (Leprous).


Positive news: On Sunday the car ferry will also be run after the last act (Leprous). After the show, please proceed quickly to the ferry terminal, you will all get to the other side safely.

Hotel / Shuttle Service

For all those who have booked a hotel & shuttle service: There will be a fixed pickup place for the transfer this year.
