  • Where is the festival located?

It will take place in Parc Brill in Mamer.

  • How much does the festival cost?

The ticket fee is priced at €15 during the pre-sale period. For those planning to attend on the day of the event, tickets can be acquired directly at the festival grounds for €20, subject to availability.

  • How do I pay the ticket fee?

After submitting the form on this website, you’ll receive an email with the payment instructions. If you didn’t receive it, please contact us at hello@womensboulderingfestival.lu.

  • Can I donate extra to Europa Donna Luxembourg?

Yes, you can! When you transfer the ticket fee, it is also possible to add some euro’s on top. We keep track on these donations and will publish after the event an overview of all the donations.

  • How can I reach the festival?

We recommend to use public transportation or soft mobility (bicycle, etc). From Luxembourg city is a direct line by bus or a direct cycling path. If you come by car, there are several parking areas near the Parc Brill in Mamer.

  • Is it possible to eat and drink at the festival?

Yes! Throughout the Women’s Boulder Festival, a wide selection of healthy and nourishing food options will be available to everyone offered by atelierMIK. Mik (a climber herself when not cooking) will offer you a varied choice of delicious and energizing meals, snacks and beverages.

In Parc Brill are water fountains for free hydration refills. So don’t forget to bring your water bottle.

  • What’s the refund policy for the event?

The Women’s Bouldering Festival will raise funding for the breast cancer coalition Europa Donna Luxembourg. The festival tickets are non-refundable. If, somehow, you won‘t be able to join, you may transfer the spot to another individual. To transfer, please email hello@womensboulderingfestival.lu.

  • What if the weather is not good (storm, rain or thunder,…) ?

If the weather conditions do not permit to proceed with the festival the tickets fee will be automatically donated to the breast cancer coalition Europa Donna Luxembourg. But to ease the pain, you’ll receive a free entrance at BKL.

  • How does payment at the festival work?

When you’re at the festival grounds, you’ve got two ways to pay: Satispay, a handy free app you can download upfront or right there, or good old cash. You can get at the cash box €10 vouchers that can be used to purchase drinks, snacks and goodies. Don’t sweat it if you don’t use the full €10 – just head back to the cash counter for a refund. And if you’ve still got some leftover credit on the voucher that you won’t be using, it’s all good – that leftover goodness goes to support the breast cancer coalition Europa Donna Luxembourg.

  • Will it be possible to rent climbing equipment such as climbing shoes at the festival?

There are on site some climbing shoes available for renting. We take care of crash pads. But best is to bring your own gear! 🙂

  • What is included in the festival ticket?

With the entrance you will have access to the whole festival ground (as marked on the festival map with the boulder blocs, info points, mini-shop, food corner with chill area and DJ) as well as workshops we offer throughout the day.

When purchasing your festival ticket, please make sure to specify the workshops you’re interested in. This helps us arrange the spots, ensuring you have the best experience while also preventing overcrowding in the workshops.
