MOBILITY

Du Hast tickets for Rammstein on August 3, 2022 at Park De Nieuwe Koers in Ostend but keine Lust in stress on the road? Understandably so. Luckily we figured out your route from head to toe. During the Rammstein concert, the population of Ostend will increase by more than a half. That means a lot of traffic. We will do everything possible to steer this mobility tidal wave in the right direction. Nevertheless, you will need to calculate some waiting time by car, both before and after the concert. The solution is simple: take the concert bus, public transport or your bike! Here below you find the practical information on how to get safe and sound to Ostende!

 

CONCERTBUS

 

CONCERT BUS

 

When you get on the concert bus at one of our 101 stops, spread all over Belgium and the North of France, your worries are over. You will be dropped off and picked up close to the entrance of the concert site. Your trip will be the ideal way to get into the mood or to share memories on the show afterwards. Put on your vintage Rammstein t-shirt, have a drink, learn the lyrics of 'Deutschland' by heart, discuss Lindemann's solo work, or take a nap... It's all possible on the bus.
 

Depending on your stop, a return ticket starts at 18 euros. Book your tickets via www.concertbus.be. All tickets already purchased remain valid.
 

The concert bus:

  • picks you up in your town/city,
  • makes sure you arrive at your destination safe and sound and nearby the concert site,
  • gets you in the mood on the way and makes the 'Who's Bob' question superfluous.

CAR

 

 

During the Rammstein concert, the population of Ostend will increase by more than half. That means a lot of traffic. By car, you will have to calculate extra waiting time, both before and after the concert. We therefore advise you to avoid the car as much as possible and to choose one of the above options. If you do choose to travel by car, please take the following important matters into account.

 

There will be a limited number of paying car parks where you can quickly and easily find a parking space thanks to dynamic signage. An overview of these car parks will follow later. From there, you can continue your journey to the concert on foot (30 minutes), by bike or shuttle. Follow the signs on the spot and do not rely on your GPS, nor on your knowledge of the region! A good alternative are the station car parks of the NMBS, see above under the heading 'TRAIN'.
 

Tickets for the car park will be available shortly via this page.
 

Attention!

  • You cannot park in the immediate area of the concert site.
  • Parking is prohibited in the surrounding streets. The police keep a close eye on this.
  • Leave on time to avoid crowds on and off the parking lot. Also, the queues to enter the grounds can be long just before the start of the concert.
