For International guests Copenhagen Airport (CPH) is the most accessible airport in the area. From Copenhagen, take the train to Malmö and then onward with train towards Ystad and Simrishamn.



By Public Transport


To Sjöröd you can go by train and bus almost the whole way. Since the camp site is located in the middle of the forest, you will have to walk from the nearest bus stop.


Skånetrafiken runs all the buses and trains that take you to Sjöröd. You can travel to Simrishamn (or Gärsnäs) by train ”Pågatågen” from Malmö and Ystad, and the express bus from Lund and Kristianstad. If you have not previously travelled with Skånetrafiken, you may want to know that tickets for “Pågatågen” must be purchased before boarding the train. Tickets are purchased from vending machines at the stations.


Nearest bus stop is called ”Gyllebosjövägen” and is located two kilometres from the camp site. The bus that goes there is called 574 and departs from Simrishamn Station. Regardless of whether you travel by train or bus to Simrishamn, the journey by bus 574 is always included in the price.


Nearest train station is called “Gärsnäs” and is located about 15 minutes by car from the camp site. In Gärsnäs you can also find the closest supermarket, bakery, steak house and kiosk.

Though, the train station in Gärsnäs is not as busy as the Simrishamn Station.


The Autocrats will not be able to arrange pick-ups from the bus or train stations. We recommend that you arrange for transportation through friends, the DW event group on Facebook or the Drachenwald mailing list.
