Party marathon with Alpine views: Chiemsee Summer Festival

What do reggae and rock have in common? Exactly: Chiemsee Summer Festival! Four days of partying with different musical acts to an idyllic mountain backdrop. Thanks to the merger of the established festivals Chiemsee Reggae Summer and Chiemsee Rocks, festivalgoers get more than ever before: more music, more diversity, more inspiration, more adventures.

Übersee lies on the southern bank of the Chiemsee lake, with stunning views of the Chiemgau mountains. Once a year, this idyllic spa town offers a rather special spa treatment - one for the soul. That’s when fans of all kinds of musical genres come together to party and enjoy rock, reggae, hip hop, ska and pop - in a casual and relaxed atmosphere. Chiemsee Summer Open Air simply means an awesome time for everyone. It was the result of Chiemsee Rocks and Chiemsee Reggae merging in 2014, which explains today’s diverse line up. But it’s not just the diversity which makes this festival something special: once you feel the vibrations of the bass in your blood and you’re surrounded by the ecstatic crowd, the picturesque mountain backdrop will feel almost surreal. And for those who want to enjoy a quick swim between the shows, one of Germany’s longest natural lakeside beaches is just around the corner.

Chiemsee Summer offers just as much variety accommodation-wise: there’s a campsite for the partying crowd, a relaxed ‘comfort camp’ as well as the option to just bring your caravan. If you prefer neat and tidy, book a spot in our ‘green living’ area, and parties of 10 or more can reserve their own ‘sleep island’, a camping area complete with your own flag, either on the regular or the comfort campsite. And if you want to join the party the second you get there, rent a tent on and we’ll put it up for you in your preferred spot.

The casual outfits of the festivalgoers reflect the event’s great and diverse atmosphere: laid-back shorts, colourful playsuits, crop tops, straw hats or loud bikinis - we love it all! Just let your look embrace that ultimate summer feeling.
