general info

The party is located in Bingen am Rhein, a beautiful small town at the junction of the rivers Rhine and Nahe. Bingen is surrounded by a varied landscape, known for its natural beauty, its castles and other places of interest. It's around 80km west of Frankfurt/Main, and 100km south of Cologne. Bingen is easily reachable by car (A60 and A61 motorways), by rail (Intercity Express, Intercity, Eurocity and regional trains), by air (Frankfurt-Main, Frankfurt-Hahn and Cologne/Bonn (CGN) airports), and by inland shipping, and therefore is a perfect choice for an international event like Breakpoint. For details, visit the Travelling page.

The party will start on Good Friday, April 14th at 12:00PM and end on Easter Monday, April 17th at 1:00PM. This makes 73 hours of non-stop fun. The entrance fee will be 45 EUR [BP2005 financial background info], the same as last year. The entrance fee covers all party features including the seminars, the non-stop (09:00-04:00) bus shuttle service, and well - everything else. No additional costs. There are no single day tickets, and no rebates if you come earlier, later or by spaceship. Girls get in for free though.

We're back at Breakpoint 2005's location, the "Rundsporthalle" in Bingen, with all its nice features, including plenty of space for seats, the grandstand which is perfect to watch competitions from, and the space for a gigantic bigscreen. We will also again feature a seperate seminar area, lots of clean showers and toilets - and much more.

Also, as another improvement compared to last year, we will (probably) have an actual seperate seminar area building - so you won't have to turn down your volume in the main hall while seminars are running anymore :).
