Arrival station: Zamárdi
The Balaton Sound Express arrives at Zamárdi train station. From there it’s a 20-minute walk to the Balaton Sound campsites. You can use the local train service if you stay in Balatonföldvár or Siófok.
Departure station: Szántód-Kőröshegy
After the festival, the Balaton Sound Express departs from Szántód-Kőröshegy. This train station is located less than three kilometers from the Balaton Sound campsites. It was chosen as departure station because there’s a lot of shade and it provides more time to get in the train than at Zamárdi train station.
Moving-In Camping ticket and Boat Party
To be able to stay at the camping on the day of arrival, you need to buy a Moving-In Camping ticket. Also, there will be a Belgian Boat Party on that arrival day again. More information about this will be available shortly.
The greenest travel option
* The difference of 83% is calculated in an advisory module from Milieu Centraal, an independent organization of Rijkswaterstaat that provides practical information about the environment. Based on a distance of 1.434 kilometers and 900 people, Milieu Centraal indicates that the emissions per person by train are 96kg CO2, while aircraft produces 550kg CO2 per person.
