Travelling from Berlin by train 

Pick ups/drop offs:

For those coming from Berlin without a car, we can offer pick-ups at the Pritzwalk train station in Brandenburg starting from 12:00. Later, we can offer you a drop off at the same train station until 20:30 at the latest.  Please check the train times on the Deutsche Bahn website. If you plan to come by train and you need us to pick you up at the Pritzwalk train station, please get in touch with Imma Scarpato, by September 29th 2022, at the latest. Unfortunately, due to our event timetable, we can only offer pick-ups and drop-offs in certain times. Alternatively, you can also book a taxi at Prignitz mobil (you need to do it one day before at least). 

If you want to leave the day after, there are still some hotels in Pritzwalk available (In Mentin and other places in Ruhner Berge, unfortunately there is no more availability). See below. After the event on Saturday, we can take you to your hotel in Pritzwalk (until 20h30 at the latest). Still, once again, we ask you to inform Imnma Scarpato in advance so that we can organize the transfers accordingly. Thank you! 


Unfortunately, our accommodation facilities in Mentin are fully booked on that day, and we do not have availability to host anyone else in Mentin on the night of October 1st. Nevertheless, there are some hotels in Pritzwalk with rooms available, and they can be booked via
