This information refers to the Climate Camp Munich, May 18-21, 2023. Except for time and location, it will be similar for future Munich Climate Camps though.
The camp is located in the middle of the Theresienwiese near the subway stations Theresienwiese (U4/U5, 500 m) and Poccistraße (U3/U6, 700 m). Bicycle parking is provided on the camp grounds.

To plan your journey, you can use the Timetable information service of the Munich Public Transport company (MVV). Special route options and handicaps can also be noted there. A simplified version of the information (German) is available for people with visual impairments. Alternatively, timetable information can also be obtained by calling +49 89 41 42 43 44. A greatly simplified version of the timetable information is also available for older devices.
At both subway stations, the entrance and exit height between the vehicle floor and the platform is 10 cm. Escalators and an elevator are available.
For Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., a free escort service for bus and train (German) can be requested, which must be booked at least two working days before the desired escort.Arrival by Cab
Arrival by Car
The nearest general parking space for handicapped persons is at St.-Pauls-Platz 11, others can be found on a map provided by the city of Munich (German).
It is not allowed to park on the Theresienwiese and finding a parking space is difficult in the Munich city area. The closest P+R facility is the Heimeranplatz parking garage. Closest to the camp site is the Lindwurmstraße parking license area in Ludwigs-/Isarvorstadt. The city of Munich provides maps with the exact parking regulations and nearby e-charging stations on a separate page.
A maximum of 300 people can stay overnight at the camp. We therefore recommend you to register (anonymously) so we can reserve your places. You can bring your own tents (max. 10 m² floor space, pegs max. 30 cm long, no pavilions) or roll out your sleeping mats in one of the workshop tents, as long as there is space – you will be visible from the outside though. Information about other choices for overnight stays in Munich is given on the Accomodation page. You do not need to register or camp with us to participate in the events and other activities.
Please check in at the info tent upon arrival, where we will give you general information, tick off your reserved spots if necessary and show you to your site if you plan to camp. The surface of the camp area is finely graveled, so bring comfortable sleeping mats.
There are Safer Spaces for FLINTA* and BIPoC in the tent area, as well as low-barrier areas reserved for the appropriate groups.
We are a self-organized camp and have to manage most tasks on site together. For the necessary work , such as kitchen duty or night guards, shift plans are available for registration.
The entrance to the Klimacamp München is free, but it is financed to a large extent by donations. Therefore, all contributions help us a lot to cover our expenses. Please use the donation boxes at the camp or donate online! For larger amounts, donation receipts can be issued upon request.

The Info Tent is the contact point for your registration as well as for all kinds of questions from camp participants and speakers. You can find important information there like the program schedule or the awareness concept, you can sign up for volunteer shifts and announce your own program contributions for the open space tent.
We want to live together in alternative, solidary and hierarchy-free self-organization. The morning round is arranged by all together for the organization of each day and at the info tent you can put your issues on the agenda or take over the moderation. Tasks on the camp like cooking, cleaning up, shifts in the info tent, awareness shifts etc. will also be organized together. We have formulated something like a position paper on the goals of the Munich Climate Camp in our self-image.
At the camp we want to live the change we desire together and treat each other with appreciation. In addition to the diverse prepared program there will be free space to create your own workshop, educational, musical or cultural offerings in the open-space tent. In the creative tent you can do handicrafts, paint banners to beautify the camp and more. There will be an exchange corner for clothes, plants and a recycling closet for everyday items, so feel free to bring well-preserved items that are looking for a new home! We invite everyone to help shape the climate camp and inspire each other.
Accessibility / Awareness
The camp is low-barrier. There are paved paths and wheelchair accessible toilets. We are working on organizing sign language interpreters; please let us know for which events you would like to have a translation by mail to email@example.com or on site in the info tent. We will be happy to answer any questions, see contact.
To ensure that everyone feels comfortable at the camp, an awareness team and a supervised awareness tent will be available at all times. The team is recognizable by purple vests, can be reached via the info tent or by e-mail and during the camp by phone as well, see contact.
More about awareness at the camp
People are advantaged or disadvantaged because of certain characteristics. Awareness means that we want to cultivate and practice a mindful and empathic interaction with each other at the climate camp. Members of marginalized and discriminated groups should explicitly feel welcome and be able to participate without any worries. All participants share responsibility for this. Nevertheless, differences of opinion and assaultive behavior of individuals can occur, so we have an awareness team that offers support for these cases. It is recognizable by the purple vests and can usually be found at the awareness tent (a retreat room open to all). The awareness team works according to the definition power principle and is partisan with affected people.
Photography and Filming
The camp is a protected space for a political assembly. Taking photos and filming, even from outside, are therefore only allowed with the consent of all persons depicted – please respect a “no”. For representatives of the press, we will set up time slots in which recordings are possible after registration, for more details see Press. These slots will be announced at the morning plenary and will also be posted at the info tent.
Safety and First Aid
- In case of dangerous weather events we ask you to stay calm. The organizing team will decide on further action if necessary.
- For the nights we will assign night guards together.
- Bringing weapons is prohibited. This includes pocket knives and multitools (“Leatherman”) with blades. Tools for setting up the tent are no problem, but please leave them in the tent and do not carry them around.
- There is a medical tent and a medical on-call service.
