2. Closure of access roads
For safety reasons, the police will sooner or later have to completely close the access roads to St. Goar. The complete closure will affect federal road 9 between the St. Goar-Gründelbach entrance and the An der Loreley district. The police alone will decide exactly when the road will be closed based on the traffic situation on the day of the event. We therefore ask you to arrive early (before 6 pm)!
The road closures will be reopened by the police after the fireworks. It is not allowed to drive on the B9 in the city area before the police have cleared the road!
3. St. Goar-St. Goarshausen Ferry
Before the fireworks, the ferry will operate as a regular shuttle service for pedestrians until approx. 19.00 hrs.
Cars can only use the ferry until approx. 18.00 hrs.
Visitors using the ferry on foot are requested to change to the side of the Rhine they wish to be on after the fireworks at 7 p.m. at the latest. The shuttle service after the fireworks can only be resumed after the water police have given the go-ahead - this may take until around 11.00 pm.
Afterwards, the Loreley car and passenger ferry will run between the two towns for cars and pedestrians during the night from Saturday to Sunday until 00:00.

Travelling by train and special transport
Train connections from and to St. Goar can be found online at ww.bahn.de
Due to the big rush to the railway station following the fireworks display, we will continue to deploy more security forces and police around the station. They will regulate the flow of people on the platform.
Please follow their announcements – it primarily serves your safety.
Your travels can also be more relaxed if, instead of leaving right after the fireworks, you visit our Wine Festival and take one of the later trains.
Shuttle buses are also planned for 2020.
You will find more information here around two weeks before the event.
