Looking for a different experience in the summer months or during Oktoberfest? From the railway station, travel 13 minutes
by U-Bahn to the Botanischer Garten stop and sleep in a huge tent with other
backpackers. (Or you can bring your own tent and still enjoy the new toilets,
showers, and self-service laundry facilities.)
Thalkirchen Camping Ground
This campground is in a conservation and recreation area, about 20 minutes from
central Munich by U-Bahn and bus. RV/caravan hookups are available, and a snack
bar is on the premises.
During Oktoberfest, you can save money by renting a tent at the Olympic Horse
Stadium--but you'll need to bring your own sleeping bag.
