Who are the organisers?

The team and its helpers have created an organisational basis to prepare and carry out the Steppenbrand through the association STEPPENBRAND-MV e.V. Our team and all the helpers work on a completely voluntary basis in their free time and/or holidays for the fetish meeting. There are no expense allowances. The only privileges enjoyed by our industrious helpers, depending on their periods of service are free board and lodge.

Does Steppenbrand-MV e.V. make a profit?

No – as our articles as a non-profit association rule out the profit motive. Our prices are calculated to cover all the costs and achieve a surplus for necessary new investments in the years to come. Regular guests can confirm that we have managed to come up with nice little surprises every year. Steppenbrand-MV e.V. also supports gay and lesbian projects in the Hanseatic city of Rostock.

When can one come and how long can one stay?

Arriving or leaving earlier from the Monday (08.07.24) is possible and indeed very welcome. But registration is imperative! We have rented the property for the whole week. Just take a look at the registration routine and select your time. A departure is mandatory on Sunday, 14.07.24 required, so that the team then dismantle everything and can also start the journey home.

Is preregistration necessary?

YES: Tickets to our event will only be sold online in advance. There will be no more sales on site and there are therefore no more day tickets

Is the number of participants limited?

Yes, there is a limit on the number of guests. The main reasons for keeping a cap on the numbers this year are the desire of our guests for a familiar, cosy atmosphere to the meeting and our team’s limited organisational options.

Is there accommodation in case of one doesn’t own a tent?

Those who can't sleep in a tent, car or camper because they don't have one, or arrive by bike, can also spend the night in the barracks building together with other participants. However, we will charge an extra fee for this. You can choose between a bed in the dormitory (only the bed and mattress, bed linen, blanket and pillow have to be brought by yourself) or you can book a complete room with 6 sleeping places which you can then share with your friends. In addition, the room is lockable and you will receive 6 keys for a deposit of 50.00 EUR.
Please note that we allocate the rooms / sleeping places according to the order of registrations and the receipt of your TN contribution to us on the club account.

How do I get to Steppenbrand?

The easiest way to find us is to use your GPS. Just enter 18137 Saal, Damser Weg 1. With some GPS units, you can even enter 18137 Saal, Steppenbrand Weg and you will be directed right to our location. For those of you without a GPS: Take the Motorway A19 towards Rostock and take the Rostock-Ost exit (Exit Number 6). Take the B105 in the direction of Stralsund/Ribnitz-Damgarten. Stay on the B105, take the city bypass around Ribnitz and after about 1.5 km in Damgarten, turn left in the direction of Zentrum/Saal. In about 10 kms, you will reach Saal, and after leaving the city limits, turn left onto Damser Weg. Normally, there is a directional sign pointing the way to Steppenbrand at this intersection.


Attention! Unfortunately, the state of Damser Weg is not the best. Please drive carefully and pay attention to transverse channels!

 For those of you coming by train:

The station where you have to get off is "Ribnitz-Damgarten West". From there you can come to us with a cab (about 35,- €).

How much does the whole thing cost?

You’ll find price details here on this page on registration / prices

Payment of food and drinks etc.

So that everyone can leave their cash in the accommodation, all drinks and meals (except breakfast and dinner) are paid for with prepaid cards.
You can buy prepaid cards with a value of 20,00 € for cash at the guard immediately upon arrival and are thus not dependent on cash on the premises.
During the meeting you can buy additional prepaid cards at the guard, in the breakfast tent or at the cash desk in the bar area against cash.

Breakfast and dinner are included in the price of your ticket. The prices for drinks, snacks and much more are moderate and will be paid by punching the prepaid cards. We ask you to refrain from self-catering during the meeting!
Please keep in mind: Even the small profit generated by the sales will benefit the Steppenbrand. Only this way we can assure you an eventful fetish-weekend also in the coming years ! There is no need to provide yourself! This year we will charge a minimum of 20,- per day. This minimum consumption can be used for drinks and food.
The experiences of the last years show us that we have to meet the trend to self-catering. Therefore, we have clearly positioned ourselves on this topic in our General Terms and Conditions. On the one hand, it is not usual or possible at other events to bring your own drinks/food and on the other hand, it also shows a certain degree of disrespect for the work of our team not to use our offers. So if you don't want to do without warm cheap beer from plastic bottles and discount sausages on disposable grills, you should really think twice before making the long trip up north. It was and is our claim to make an all-round feel-good offer according to our possibilities, which also includes the supply of our guests. And since our prices are quite respectable compared to other gay events, it is simply unfair not to take advantage of our offers and thus put the organizer in financial distress.

What about the sanitary facilities?

For pissing we have toilets and all the trees and bushes in the area. Possibly there are some friends which want to drink. For shiting you can use the regular WC. Regular showers with hot water are available in addition to outdoor showers. When you play in mud, please use the outside mud shower.


When camping in the nature, an encounter with animals that have more than 2 legs and possibly wings is possible. However, there is no danger of ticks. Please inform yourself beforehand. However, you should cover yourself with enough AUTAN or similar mosquito repellent to avoid the appearance of a litter cake.

Consideration with fetishes

At the Steppenbrand, everyone can act out his fetish freely! But because there are things that not everyone can deal with, one should think about how far one should perform certain acts in the presence of others. Not everyone can handle every fetish, particularly when it’s rather nonstandard. One should also consider that there are certain risks attached to certain activities. And that, if something goes wrong, the police and the public prosecutor might turn up on the doorstep (which we of course hope doesn’t happen). During your play, remember that everyone wants to have fun, be tolerant and fair to each other. Don’t hassle anyone, don’t do anything the other doesn’t want, don’t annoy or shock him. Also consider that fact that, in the event something goes wrong, ultimately it will be not just you but also the organisers who get into trouble and that this could harm the Steppenbrand as such. And the last thing we want is that this could be the last Steppenbrand through individual stupidity.

Who can become a helper with us?

We welcome every hardworking helper. If organising and running the Steppenbrand wasn’t such fun, we would probably have given up long ago. But it is really hard work for anyone who gets involved. So respect to anyone wanting to play his part with us in his free time on an entirely voluntary basis. But we also welcome any small contribution, even in subareas. Just get in touch with the staff.

Attention: Under-18s are not permitted to attend!
