How do I come to Büchel?
The military base Büchel lies next to the village Büchel in the Eifel in Rhineland palatinate. From there, it’s approximately 100km to Cologne in the north and to Frankfurt (Main) in the east. The next train station is in Cochem on the rivel Mosel. Like last year, most of our actions will take place at the main entrance to the air base (bus stop: ‘Fliegerhorst Büchel, Alflen’, GPS: 50.184, 7.056). The solidarity-bus will arrive there on the evening of the 6th of July. Also, the bike tour will end there.
Following the motto ‘Bikes not Bombs’, we want to travel to Büchel by bike together from all directions! We will start from Bonn, Trier, Mainz, Koblenz or Cochem. Starting times and further information can be found via the following link:
By Solidarity-Bus (due to the Corona-regulations, the schedule isn’t set yet, we will share news with you here and via the newsletter):

Hannover: 9 am Hannover main station
Düsseldorf: 1 pm Südpark park&ride
Arrival in Büchel approx. 5 pm.
Departure from Büchel: 11th of July, approx. 11 am
The departure times were picked so that you are able to reach the bus from Berlin, Cottbus, Hamburg, Bremen etc. on the Tuesday morning.
The best connection is via Koblenz. From there, you take the regional train to the station of Cochem. From there, it will take you 20 minutes with the line 500 to get to the bus stop ‘Büchel Flugplatz, Alflen’. The connection runs at least every hour on weekdays (13 minutes past the full hour).
From the highway A48, you take the exit ‘Ulmen’ and follow the B259 in the direction of Cochem. On the B259, the ‘Fliegerhorst Büchel’ is marked several times, simply follow the signs.
4 km before Büchel, you go right to Lutzerath and Alflen. If you take that junction, there is a roundabout after approx. 150m and the entrance to the air base. When you see tents and transparents, you know that you’re in the right place. Parking is rare, so we advise you to take the fourth exit in the roundabout or shortly park at the field road behind the bus stop, from there you can come and ask us for the best place to park your car.
