Getting there


The 2nd big Ende Gelände Action will take place in the Rhineland, close to Bonn between the 3rd and 6th of November. We recommend getting to Bonn already on Friday (3rd of November), 5:00pm to be able to prepare the action on Saturday.The place for the circus tent in Bonn now is announced. The circus tent serves as a central
information point as well as a central ‘kitchen for all’. In the tent you will find information on the alternative conference, the event locations and contents and also on sleeping places. Furthermore there will be several fringe events.
Following the events which are more or less decentralized, you are welcomed to gather and exchange your experiences there. The information-point will be open daily (3.-7.11.) from 11am to 11pm.

In the circus tent you will find a central food distribution. Presumably the kitchen collective ‘Rampenplan’ is going to prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner daily – offering their service for donation. For the workshop-days on 6th/7th of November, it is planned to have a long break between 12 and 2:30 pm. So you will have enough time reach and enjoy lunch at 12:30 pm. Dinner is planned for 7 pm daily.
