Burst has a permanent TestNet running. Its purpose is to provide a sandbox for both developers and users to test Burst features and to experiment features without remorse[1].

You can access the PoCC-operated online TestNet-wallet via https://wallet.dev.burst-test.net/

How to set up a TestNet node ?

Before launching BRS, edit brs.properties and change the following lines

DEV.TestNet = yes
DEV.P2P.BootstrapPeers = wallet.dev.burst-test.net
DEV.DB.Url =jdbc:mariadb://localhost:3777/yourbursttestdatabase
DEV.DB.Username =root
DEV.DB.Password =yourpassword

obviously, you should use a different DB for TestNet than you use for MainNet.
