First the good news: There is a camp area! And it is even just on the outskirts of Garmisch-Partenkirchen – and thus very close to the Great Demo!
There are some catches and caveats however which we want to point out as early as possible – so now.
The situation is still very unclear. In a press release, the authorities have announced their intention to prevent camps anyway, and that they keep the area found to be unfit. Therefore: Be fully equipped, with own tent, sleeping bag, mattress, and prepared for it, even confrontational, so “wild” to go camping in doubt.
The area is for many people who we expect quite narrow. Imagine it maybe one, but to sleep in a large tent, because there are just not enough space for all private tents – but you do should have this anyway!
Because of space problems, we can not provide parking – and Garmisch is a relatively small place that will be plugged in these days even with cops and rescue teams. Although private cars can for the actions still to be very useful, but provides you an on having parking difficulties and they may be far outside permit!
Due to the extremely uncooperative authorities and the difficult external situation, the camp will include only a minimum infrastructure and likely uncomfortable. Trying as much as possible to be equipped to provide you in doubt itself can. Accessibility we can not guarantee!
