Camping in Munich during Oktoberfest

Bringing your own trailer or motor home to the Wiesn.

Parking your own trailer or motor home next to the Oktoberfest venue is not permitted in Munich. Those who don’t want to book into a hotel or one of numerous private accommodation options can still arrive with their own trailer or motor home. Special parking lots and camp sites with good connections to the Oktoberfest site via public transport can be found in different districts around Munich.

Only during Oktoberfest: Munich’s biggest camp site for trailers and motor homes.

The Oktoberfest Camping at the De-Gasperi-Bogen on the grounds of Munich Conference Center in Riem is specially arranged only for the duration of Oktoberfest as a parking lot with sanitary facilities for 1,500 trailers or mobile homes, of which 800 have a power connection. Sanitary facilities with showers and restrooms are available to all guests. In the cozy “Erdinger Urweiße Hütte” there is Bavarian food and drink on offer at almost all times of day. The parking lot for trailers and mobile homes can be reached by taking Autobahn 99 to intersection München-Ost and then Autobahn 94, leaving at the Feldkirchen-West intersection. Simply follow the signs for “Messe/ICM”. Oktoberfest can be reached within 20 minutes from there. Take the U-Bahn U2 line from Messestadt Ost or the U7 to Innsbrucker Ring and change there to the U5, travelling to Theresienwiese. Further information can be found at: www.oktoberfest-camping.com.
