Campingplatz Thalkirchen Location and Facilities
Campingplatz Thalkirchen is the Munich's main permanent campground and the closest budget accommodation to the Oktoberfest. It really is the place to be during the fest. The campground is in a great location on the Isar River and surrounded by parklands. There are a number of beergardens and restaurants within a short walk from the campground. There is a good number of large toilet/shower blocks, a small supermarket and shop, bar (steins before and after Oktoberfest) and take-away hot food. Whilst a token (~€1.80) is needed for hot water in the showers the hot water never runs out.

Getting to the Oktoberfest
We will supply transport to the fest grounds from the camp. This will either be by coach shuttle service or via the Munich underground. Due to Munich police security regulations, we will only be able to provide a limited shuttle service on the weekends from the camp to fest. However getting to fest grounds is fast and easy on public transport from our Thalkirchen camping base. It is only 3 or 4 stops on the underground. We supply U-bahn tickets at the camp upon request, when shuttle services are not operating.
We will supply breakfast each morning. It is a fully cooked breakfast - both a continental and hot breakfasts offered daily - you can have as much as you like.
Dachau and Andechs Monastery Day Trip
We have a day excursion that first visits Dachau concentration camp before heading onto Andechs Monastery. After Andechs the coach drops off at the Oktoberfest then the campground. The day trip will be run on Sunday, 23rd of September. These are available upon request and depending upon availability for a cost of just €20 per person (payable on arrival to the campground). Pre-book this by replying to your booking confirmation email.
