How to get there
Please note: The camping ground Stover Strand International is located in a quiet area at the end of the access road ‘Stover Strand’. You will pass by a restaurant and another smaller camping ground!
The Heartbeat Festival will be held south of the Elbe River as there is a good connection to the motorway. It only takes about 30 minutes to reach the festival from Hamburg, Lüneburg or Lauenburg. The Baltic Sea is 100 km away.
Arrival from the South:
You switch in Maschen from the A7 to the A39. In Handorf you leave the Autobahn and continue on the B404. Before you reach the bridges that cross the Elbe River, you leave the B404 in Rönne taking the direction of Stove. When you reach Stove, follow the signs to the camping ground and follow the access road to the end.
Arrival from the West:
Leave the A1 and turn onto the A7. In Maschen switch to the A39. For the rest of the way follow the directions for the arrival from the South.
Arrival from the North:
Drive on the A25 until you reach Geesthacht, leave the motorway and follow the B404 to Lüneburg. After a few kilometres cross the Elbe River and immediately turn in the direction of Drage. Drive through Rönne, Schwinde and Stove. After that follow the signs to the camping ground and follow the access road to the end.
Arrival from the East:
Leave the A24 when you reach Schwarzenbeck and follow the B404 to Geesthacht. For the rest of the way follow the directions for the arrival from the North.
Arrival by bus:
There are buses that can take you to Geesthacht and Rönne. Experienced people can reach the festival on foot from Rönne. Others need to take the connection bus or call the subsidised collection taxi (04177/252). If you come from Winsen, you can take the bus that will bring you very close to the venue; you’ll just have to walk 150 m.
Arrival by ship / boat:
If you happen to own a boat or ship, you can travel to the port that is right next to the festival. On special occasions passenger ships arrive that go all the way to Hamburg harbour.
By plane, then taxi, train & bus…
Hamburg Airport is the nearest commercial airport and it takes about 1 hour to get to Stover Strand with a car. A taxi from the airport to the festival would cost you about 90€. You can try to share a taxi with another person.
Alternatively take the tube U1 from Hamburg Airport to Hamburg Main Station (Hauptbahnhof) then the Regional Train R30 to (Bahnhof) Winsen Station and then the bus 4405 directly to the camping site (small walk of approx. 5-10 minutes).
The tube, train and bus journey takes approx. 1 hour and 50 minutes.
Travelling to Heartbeat Alone?
Lots of faithful and dedicated worshippers will be travelling to the event on their own, but that does not mean that they need to feel lonely or be alone! For those of you who are coming to the event on your own, please feel free to post on our Facebook page and organize yourself by finding a roommate or tentmate (please of course connect with people of the same sex for obvious reasons). We love family and friendships so we encourage that people would not be alone but feel at home and part of the family.
