A new story has been written! MetalDays announced a winter edition: “Winter Days of Metal”. The second edition of this festival will take place from the 1st-3rd of March 2018 in the village Bohinjska Bistrica, and since this is the real definition of grim and frostbitten, and we really loved the festival last year, of course the GRIMM crew will be there again! You can read about last year’s adventures in our WDOM 2017 review.

The festival is located 54 km from Ljubljana airport and is easily accessible by car, bus and train, with a guaranteed amazing view on your ride there. The idyllic village of Bohinjska Bistrica is situated in between the beautiful Lake Bled and Lake Bohinj and next to Vogel Ski Resort. It offers the guests an amazing winter holiday experience on natural snow, with spectacular views. If you’re not really into skiing or snowboarding, you can also take a Wellness festival package, so you can enjoy the Bohinj Aqua Park, with its pools, jacuzzis and saunas.
Of course Bohinj has a lot more to offer, so you can also go on a winter hike and discover the surroundings and other activities. You can find more information about the possible activities on the official Bohinj website.
Festival Area & Ski Resort
The festival itself takes place at the Dvorana Danica venue, just at the edge of the Bohinjska Bistrica village.
It’s about a 10 minute walk to the village center and Aqua Park so everything is really close. To get to the Vogel Ski Centre you can take a shuttle that gets you to the start of the ski slopes, at the edge of Lake Bohinj.
You can choose to stay at the winter campsite Camp Danica, in an apartment or in a hostel/hotel. It’s possible to book your accommodation privately, but if you book a package it will already be arranged for you.
For booking your Festival-, Ski- or Wellness package, check out the Bohinj Info Website.
If you only need festival tickets, you can order them here.
