–   There is free camping near the pitches for both tents (grass) and RVs (hard top);

–   Continuous catering will serve meat, fish and vegetarian options for breakfast, lunch and dinner;

–   A large rain-sheltered area with bar serving cold and warm drinks;

–   The venue is at walking distance from the traffic-poor city center offering hostels, B&B’s, hotels, museums, exhibitions, bars, restaurants and excellent shopping.
