    Unfortunatly the flight my boyfriend and I are getting back from germany to the UK has had it's time changed from 7pm to 2pm, which leaves us with considerably less time for getting to the airport.

    What sort of time should we try and leave the campsite at?

    What's the best way to get to Hamburg?

    We were thinking of just getting a taxi, since loads of people will be leaving will there be ones at the festival site anyway? To save money, what's a good way of finding some people willing to taxi share?

    Anything else we should bear in mind?

    Thanks a lot :).

    Thanks for your help :). Around 100 euros for a taxi doesn't sound too bad, since there are two of us to split the cost (even better if we can find some people to taxi share with). Would it be best getting one from Itzehoe or Wacken itself?

    Alternatively, would it be possible for us to get a train from Itzehoe to Hamburg and still make our flight? I had a look at timetables but they make little sense to me :(.

    yeah, if you get a bus from wacken to itzehoe, and then a train to wacken. you'll be in plenty of time to still catch your plane. the train only takes about 45 mins to hamburg. if you give yourselves just over 2 hours (the buses and train don't run very synchronous) to get from wacken to hamburg, you'll be safe.

    dunno about the sizes of the taxis, but if they have those buses like overhere, you could team up and split the costs of the taxi by 5.

    Ländertickets are much cheaper!!! Don't know for Schlesswig-Hollstein, but in Nordrhein-Westfalen it's €27 for 2-5 people on one ticket!!! (and it's Sunday, so Schönes-Wochenende-Ticket is also possible)

    Ländertickets, (state tickets) are group tickets, allowing you to travel with regional trains throughout one "Bundesland" (=state) in Germany. As Wacken = Schlesswig-Holstein (as state) you could travel from Itzehoe until Hamburg (which is a state of its own btw) Travel either alone (depending on the "Land") or as a minigroup of max. 5 persons.

    Check www.bahn.de (available in English) if you wanna know more.

    means, it IS available on weekends.

    If it wasn't, you could still buy the Weekend-Ticket which is 30 Euro for 5 persons:
