Registration & Membership

Registration and membership sales will be announced later. We expect to start the sales by late April

Why do I have to fill a questionnaire when getting a membership ?

This is going to be a special event! First of all it is a burn, which has its own culture and principles. Secondly, it relies strongly on participants' involvement, as everybody is seen as a co-creator, and we (the core orga team) will only take care of the most basic organisation and leadership. This is why we will ask a bunch of (silly yet serious) questions to make sure you understand what you are getting yourself into.

Membership information

  • Total memberships are limited to 300 people.
  • Memberships are personal to your name, but transferrable.
  • There are three membership categories: Comfy (bunk bed), Cozy (indoor “Matrazenlager”), Nature (camping, including guests sleeping in an RV), and finally Due to limited capacity, the comfier the accommodation, the greater the price. (Vehicle passes can be purchased for RVs additionally to Nature memberships).
  • There is an option for low-income memberships (with approved application) and a separate registration for kids.

How to register?

  • To be announced.
  • The castle and the grounds are not wheelchair accessible. However, the bathroom close to Room 8 is accessible so bunk bed accommodation is possible and we collectively will do our best to help you if you need assistance.

Low-income memberships

We would like to ensure that everyone has the possibility to join our event and come to Schloss Schönburn this September. That’s why we are happy to also offer a limited amount of low-income memberships this year.

To obtain a low-income membership, please fill in the application form (to be announced) and let us know why you need one.

Before applying, we kindly ask that you consider that some people might be in greater need for a low-income membership, and since the amount of these is limited not everyone will be able to get one.

Once your application has been processed, you will be notified whether it has met the requirements. If your application is approved, you will receive a code that can be used to buy a reduced membership.

Please be aware that there will be NO MEMBERSHIPS RESERVED for low-income codes. You need to go through the regular purchasing procedure and make sure you get your membership by using the received code in the main sale – once memberships are sold out, the low-income codes lose validity.
