Hi guys. Next year will be my first time to go to Wacken (by myself no less), and I'm a little apprehensive; mainly about the planning. I have some questions. First off - What is it like during the festival? Which hotels or pensions are nice places to stay? Which places should I avoid? Are there any safety precautions I should take? This Summer I was traveling through Germany alone, and I really didn't have any problems. But I know going to Wacken will be a very different experience, and I want to try and make it as problem free for myself as I can.
