Departure places in Germany and Austria

The bus journey starts at 6 pm in the south of Stuttgart at the Stuttgart-Airport-Busterminal SAB. Due to many years of experience in travels to Croatia, we made the conscious decision to not drive into city centers. In Ulm, a motorway station in the north of the city is the next stop. The journey then continues to Augsburg, where more people go on the bus to Croatia. After Augsburg, we stop in Munich at the Allianz Arena. The last stop in Germany is Rosenheim, Autobahnrasthof Samerberg at around 11 pm.

Journey through Austria, Slovenia and Croatia

From now on, the bus goes straight to Novalja. The experienced bus drivers know the route very well. They always take the fastest way for the guests to arrive at the famous Zrce Beach. All buses have 2 drivers so they can alternate to keep the journey as short as possible. In the morning, after some hours of sleep, you already arrive at the Moon and Rocks Hostel in Novalja. There is also the check-in point where you will get all your festival tickets and more information on your holiday.
At the end of your stay in Novalja/Zrce Beach, the Moon&Rocks Hostel is also the place of departure.
