    Hello,
    I have filled out your booking form, but have a few questions.
    I have calculated that 2 adults + 1 child of 10 years is £13 per day making a total of £156 for the period of 6th June – 9th June. Please would you mind confirming this is correct ?
    Also how far is the guest house from Targu mires.
    Thank you
    Justine Williams

      Hello Justine,

      it would be great to see you and your family at our festival.
      For 3 persons (children aged 8 and above pay full price) it is £39 per night in the Guesthouse including breakfast, lunch, dinner and all activities. So 4 nights would be indeed £156. There is a chance of further price reduction but it all depends on the number of participants we can bring. Anyway, this is the highest price.
      The guest house is 70 km east from Targu Mures. There is a bus service to the guest house. We will post in the following days more information about that.

      Please make sure you fill in this form so we know about you: http://freilerner-festival.de/en_GB/booking/

      Looking forward to seeing you there.

    Hi, I wanted to fill the registration form but am not sure yet of the arrival date. Does it matter a lot? Will be sleeping in a tent? 🙂 Me and my 5 year old 🙂 Can I register from begining to end and let you now later if we come a few days later on? Thanks. Looking forward to your festival. Barbara

      Hi, yes you can register and come whenever you want and stay as long as you want. It is a free festival (the local authorities sponsor us by not allowing us not to pay anything for the camp site.)

    Hello there, firstly how can I book a room at the guesthouse? Secondly are there going to be many older children there? My son is 13 years old so will the activities be suitable.

      Choose guest house when registering. We will get back to you soon with more details. We prefer the people to camp but we can not force anyone to do so.
      There are many “older” children and most of them speak english (hence homeeducated). There will be scouting activities, climbing in the adventure park, hiking, and many more. Our kids are 8 and 11 but they can mingle with older ones very easily. This applies for many home educated children. What interest does he have?

          Well in that case your son will be in his element. There are a lot of passionate climbers, minecrafters and a few youtube-ers among the participating children. Make sure you register. Although free of charge, we like to keep track who enters the camp.
          See you there

      At 10 am there is a train leaving to Oltet. The journey takes 6,5 hours. The train leaving at 3:10 pm only needs 4,5 hours. Let us know which train you take and we will come and pick you up from the train station.

      Hello Denise,

      our family, that is Audrey and Cristian are organizing this festival. We are not alone though and the spirit of this festival is that guests are hosts at the same time. If you have a contribution to the schedule, feel free to inform us. The participation is free but in order to keep a track of who is entering the camp registration is compulsory.

    Salutare din Tîrgu Mureş,
    1) Când va fi prezentarea cu construirea unei rulote, şi când cea cu aspectele legale privind homeschooling-ul?
    2) Conţinuturile sunt bătute deja în cuie? Dacă nu, şi dacă vă interesează, aş putea ţine o prezentare cu titlul Minciuni predate în şcoli.
    3) Predau fizică. Tocmai ies din Sistem şi intenţionez să intru ca profă în circuitul educaţiei acasă fiindcă mi se potriveşte muult mai bine. Tabăra Dvs. pare un prim “capăt de aţă” bun. M-ar interesa 2-3 zile în care staţi în tabără şi în care ar fi mai indicat să mă înscriu. Nu pot veni toată perioada.
    Mulţumesc, Doamne-ajută!

      salutare din turcia….in drum spre romania pentru a pregati un festival de educatie fantastic!

      1)nu este definitivat programul.

      2) orice prezentare care nu este conceputa a fi tendentioasa este binevenita. alegeti data si eventual ora si comunica-ne-o

      3) orice zi este o zi frumoasa. sunt multi care stau toata perioada. unii insa, nu. nu pot sa iti spun acum cand e (mai) bine sa fii. in general la sfarsit de saptamana vine mai multa lume. ai putea sa ne oferi niste experimente stiintifice. cred ca ar fi un pic mai benefice decat atelierul cu miniciunile din scoli, desi ne intereseaza si aspectul acesta. in principiu insa, festivalul nostru de educatie nu este impotriva ceva (scoala, sistem, PSD, etc) ci pentru ceva (educatie, invatare, dezvoltare armonioasa si sanatoasa, etc)

      va asteptam cu drag

        Bine, vin cu nişte experimente de fizică. Pregătesc şi temele de dezbătut.
        Dacă aş veni în 14-15 iunie, vă prind în tabără, sau plecaţi în drumeţii? Poate pot veni şi după sfârşitul anului şcolar.
        Iertare pentru întârzierea mail-ului. Am fost dusă pe harta patriei şi nu mă conectez de pe drum. Spor la pregătiri!

    Ne-am inscris si noi cu cazare la camera, dar nu am sunat la nicio pensiune. Am completat inscrierea si dupa aceea am citit mai multe detalii. Pentru cazare la pensiune trebuie sa sunam noi sa ne rezervam, nu-i asa? Care sunt costurile meselor? Noi vom veni de sambata 10 iunie si vom putea sta pana in 11 iunie duminica.

    Hi,
    I’ve tried to buy train tickets online but I’m not able to. Do you think there will be a problem if I just buy them when I arrive at the train station on the same day? Will there be seats available?
    Also, I’ve never been there. How far is the train station Oltet hc from the campground? I will be with my four children and I want to know what to expect. Must we walk from the train station or is there some sort of bus? I’ll be arriving on a Monday.
    Thanks.

      Hi,

      you should definitley be able to buy the tickets at the train station. Here is our number in case you need assistance: 0775265295
      When in Romania buy a DIGI Sim Card (the cheapest: 2 Euros=2GB and 200 minutes)
      Call us shortly before you reach Oltet. We will come and pick you up from the train station. According to your registration you will be camping. Is it still so?
      Bye for now

      Hello Antonie,

      after the registration ( in case you haven’t done it do it soon: http://freilerner-festival.de/en_GB/booking/) you will be contacted by us and we will assign you to one of the guesthouses that we will rent. the costs will be between 13-20 euros / night / room. The guesthouses are located in the village, most of them less than 1 km from the festival site.
      We encourage the visitors to camp (tent, camper van) on the festival site. It strengthens the spirit, you will not miss nice activities in the morning and in the evening, it is free, it is fun and so on. At the end it is your choice though.

      Looking forward to seeing you and your son in Romania this summer,

      Cristian

    We were interested in attending 2018 festival.

    What are the dates? How can we book a room in guest house? Is it ok for english speakers to travel in your country? We are not familiar with the local languages at all.

      Hello,

      we are in Dubai as well. Nice to hear that you are interested in coming. Last year we organized the winter edition of the festival in Dubai, on the Sufouh Beach!

      Since it is an international festival, almost all speak english. We have several guesthouses and they are located near the festival site. However we encourage people to camp on the festical site. There is a great feeling of belonging together by doing so, it is free of charge, it is fun, and you will miss no activity in the morning or evening.

      Would you like to meet and discuss more? We will be here in Dubai for another 6 weeks.

      Bye for now

    Hey this was shared with me tonight and I have a lot of questions.

    1. Do you have a Facebook page for the confirmed guests so we can arrange travel together. For instance I’m in the UK so would be good to go with another family as I’m a single mum and my daughter will only be 1 year 2 months!

    2. How far are the local shops?

    3. Is there plenty of fresh fruit and veg in the shop (because I prefer to eat raw food) and will there be people making regular trips so it’s easier to transport back to the site?

    4. Do you think anyone would bring extra tents and equipment for those travelling by plane so we can camp instead of paying for a guesthouse? I’m a bit worried about travelling with all my gear and a baby!

    5. Are there laundry machines on site or near by? (I use cloth nappies and prefer to machine wash!)

    Thanks in advance 😀

      Hello Jennifer,

      we do have a list of people coming. Those coming from Germany made a a group regarding the travel to the festival.
      https://m.facebook.com/profile.php?id=2063806807225644&ref=content_filter
      and there is also the group of the festival
      https://m.facebook.com/groups/1626383894313539
      The local shops are close by, that is in walkable distance. At least once a day there are people going with their car to the near by town. There are big super markets and you can find anything you want there. Once a day there is a fresh fruit and vegetable sale to the festival site.
      You can buy your camping gear on the site and store it for the next festival. Nobody else will use it in the mean time.
      Laundry is possible and cheap. Most of the visitor wash by hand though.

      I hope I could answer all your questions

    Hi!
    First I want to thank you for organizing this awesome festival!
    I would like to register my family for this year. Since we will be staying in Romania with our animals we will not be able to be camping or staying at a guesthouse. We are thinking of just coming by as often as possible but we can’t tell on which dates that will be. Is it ok if I just register us for the whole duration of the festival and we’ll pop in and out of there as needs be?
    Kind regards

    We are hoping to come to the festival from the UK. Are there any shops in the village where we can buy supplies? I’m not sure yet, how to do this all logistically. we would love to camp on the field, but we would have to fly from Uk, as I can’t drive that far. Then onward s with train/hire car. transporting the camping stuff will be a nightmare though .

      Hi,

      there are shops in the village. We have services daily to the city. There is always someone going to the big supermarkets and can bring you whatever you need.

      Should you decide to fly to Romania, we can arrange a pickup by a family. The family can accommodate you and facilitate the trip to the festival site.

      Life is easier than you think.

      See you in Romania!

          Vodafone is relatively cheap and has great network coverage in Dragus. 6 euros would give you 60 GB, and 400 international minutes worldwide and unlimited facebook and whatsapp usage. See you there!
