The Tønder Festival Campsite has a new booking system, part of the new developments to improve your camping experience.
The booking system enables a better flow into the Campsite, helps the festival planning and ensures there is space for everyone on the Campsite.
You give the booking system details of your length of stay, size of your tent or camper, number of guests spending the night, and you can choose to buy electricity.
You can also choose one of Tønder Festival’s own dwellings: lodges, family teepees and tent houses.
