wellness institutions

Our Sauna Milky Way consists of lots of fantastic wellness institutions and spaces. All of them are our community, a few of them are already on our community page.

Any questions?


Lido Plötzensee

Tram M13 to Virchow-Klinikum, then about 10-15 minutes on foot

Tram runs all night

We want to create a space which empowers all of us to have a good time in our own bodies, whether that is naked or dressed. That is why we have an awareness team which you can contact if you don‘t feel well, need help or have seen or experienced boundary-crossing behaviour. You can take a break inside the Awareness space. We do not tolerate any discriminatory behaviour.

Barriers & Companion

The site has many barriers. Of course, as a person with a disability, you can bring a free companion to the event. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about the event and the grounds.

(no) box-office
All tickets are sold online. There will be no box office. If you are still looking for a ticket, check here for self-organized ticket exchange. or sign up as a helping hand (also limited capacity!). Please do not come if you do not have a ticket. We will not let you in.
(no) camping

Unfortunately, camping is not possible at the lido.


Please stay at home if you feel sick or have a positive test.


It is important to us to create spaces where people who are discriminated against on the basis of their gender also feel comfortable. Especially in relation to nudity, we pay attention to safe places and offers. That’s why there will be a FLINTA* planet where cis men are not allowed to land (cis is an adjective and means that people identify with the gender they were assigned at birth).


The Küfa of our confidence – “Team Geil” – will swing the wooden spoon for you. You will get hot food twice a day for the purchase price. “Team Geil” cooks vegan, delicious, rich and has not given itself the name.

For the sweet tooth, we also have a waffle stand on Saturday.

helping hands
As a helper you get a weekend ticket for 10 hours of work. These are the steps:
1. register in our helping hands system.
2. activate the e-mail notifications
3. sign up for your shifts.
4. you will receive a voucher on short notice. You can redeem this voucher in our ticketshop and you will receive a ticket that you pay for (as a deposit).
5. after you have completed your shifts, report to the Infopunk on site. You will then be refunded the full ticket price.

If you have any questions, you can ask them in the helpers system. Just click “ask the heaven” or check the FAQ in the helpers system. 


Kids can join every day, accompanied by an adult who is responsible for them.  We do not have a special kids‘ program. Children under 14 enter free of charge. Everyone aged 14 and older needs to buy a full ticket.

lost and found

lost and found will be collected at the infopoint during the event. after the event, you can come during the deconstruction days (9th, 10th and 14th of October) and pick your stuff up. We do not have capacity to store the lost and found afterwords.


please do not take pictures on the event. we will have a fototographer on site to take some pictures, some of which we will also publish on our website.


Part of the revenues go to the wellness institutions to support their upkeep. Artists and workshop facilitators receive a free ticket and a small amount of money.

We also need to pay for overhead costs like the rent for the space, wood, transportation and gas, and borrowing fees. We also set aside a small reserve for the collective to cover running cost. We as the organisers do not receive any pay.
If you cannot afford the ticket or just want to build and putter around with us, you can get a free Helfi-Ticket. Register in our helping hands system.

You have questions or resources, with which you want to support our next event? Feel free to contact us.


Pets are cute, but not allowed at the lido.


There will be a checkroom at the entrance where you can leave your things after you have changed. If you have forgotten something, you can always get your stuff back. As everywhere, we do not take any responsibility for the items stored there.


We celebrate nudity separately from sexuality and want to empower people to feel comfortable with being socially naked in a casual setting. Sexual acts are unwanted at the festival. Please respect that.

We do not take back any tickets. If you decide not to come for any reason, check the self-organized ticket exchange. , where you can find people who are interesting in your ticket. The transaction itself is organised between you and the buyer. We won’t check IDs, so don‘t worry about the wrong name on the ticket.
what to pack

A standard kit includes bathrobe, slippers, two towels, a warm sweater for the evening and a water bottle. Glass bottles and dogs please stay at home. Remember: Jewelry looks great, but it can also get extremely hot in the sauna. If you want, bring something to screenprint.
