WGT - Planning

So you want to go to the next WGT, then there are a few things you need to think about before you go you need to formulate a plan. Depending on how close it is to the next WGT will depend on what you really need to do and how quickly you need to do it by. However a general rule would be to first book accommodation then arrange your travel details. This will ensure you have a place to stay when you get to Leipzig.

Planning your Trip will largely depend on your starting location / country of origin and your available budget...give yourself an upper limit for what you want to spend and try to stick to it, else the total cost can quickly spiral out of control

10 Things that you should research / plan

  1. Do your research on WGT and Leipzig via this and other websites / forums

  2. Decide on how much you want or can spend on your WGT trip (it's not cheap)

  3. Decide on how long you are going to  be in Leipzig / away from home

  4. Decide if you are going to camp at the festival

  5. Decide (if not camping) on your accommodation type (Hotel, Hostel or Pension)

  6. Decide what you want to take to WGT and how much it will weigh (esp. if camping)

  7. Decide if you are Flying to Germany (where too, luggage allowances)

  8. Decide if you are getting the Train in Germany (all the way or from the Airport or to Leipzig)

  9. Decide if you are going to Drive in Germany / Europe (all the way or hire a car at the Airport)

  10. Review your plan and getting booking...
