Low barrier arrival

Arrival by Public Transport

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.

The Königsplatz subway station is barrier-free. The entrance and exit height between the vehicle floor and the platform is 10 cm. Escalators and an elevator are available. Here is more information about the subway station (German).

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

An inclusion cab for transportation of people in wheelchairs can be ordered from either provider. Isarfunk takes orders only from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and only as an advance order at least one hour before the appointment.

Arrival by Car

The nearest general parking space for handicapped persons is in front of Luisenstr. 33, others can be found on a map provided by the city of Munich (German).

Parking

Parking on the camp ground is not permitted and finding a parking space is difficult in the Munich city area. Closest to the camp site are the parking license areas Königsplatz, Karolinenplatz und TU-Viertel in Maxvorstadt. There are no P+R facilities in this region. The city of Munich provides maps with the exact parking regulations and nearby e-charging stations on a separate page..

Overnight Stay

The camp has space for only approx. 40 small sleeping tents. We therefore recommend to register (anonymously) for camping so we can reserve your place. You can bring your own tents (max. 10 m² floor space including ropes, the smaller the better) 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. 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 and show you to your space if you plan to camp. The area consists of meadows and is well suited for camping.

We will try to set up safer spaces for FLINTA* and BIPoC in the tent area, as well as low-barrier areas reserved for the appropriate groups.

Cooperation

We are a self-organized camp and have to manage its setup and dismantling together. Please consider to help out and fill out our form for volunteers. For the necessary work on site, such as kitchen duty or night guards, shift plans are available for signing up.

The entrance to the Munich Climate Camp 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.

Practical

There will be vegan food for all (People’s Kitchen) and non-alcoholic drinks. Bringing own alcoholic drinks is possible, but we ask for moderate alcohol consumption and only in the evening – if at all. The consumption of cannabis is not permitted, as there is a playground on the premises.

Dogs brought along must be on a leash at all times. Please bring enough poop bags and dispose of leftovers promptly.

Info Tent

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 and you can sign up for volunteer shifts.

Camp Life

We want to live together in alternative, solidary and hierarchy-free self-organization. Tasks on the camp like cooking, cleaning up, shifts in the info tent, awareness shifts etc. will be performed together. We’ll discuss organizational topics such as work shifts, the agenda of the day and messages to everyone at the daily noon plenum from 1:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. The evening round from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. is dedicated to a common exchange about the content / things learned / aha moments of the workshops and the discussion about the resulting demands and wishes. We have formulated something like a position paper on the goals of the Munich Climate Camp in our self-image.

Own Activities

At the camp we want to live the change we desire together and treat each other with appreciation. In our creative area you can do handicrafts, paint banners to beautify the camp and more. There will be an exchange corner for clothes, 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. The paths are even and wheelchair accessible toilets are available. We will employ sign language interpreters; please let us know for which events you would like to have a translation by mail to programm@klimacamp-muenchen.org 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.

To the detailed awareness concept

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, there will be a daily time slot from 11:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon in which recordings are possible after registration, for more details see Press. These slots will be announced shortly in advance at the camp and also be posted there.

First Aid, Safety and Prohibition of Weapons

  • There will be a medical tent and a medical on-call service.
  • 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 to public assemblies is a criminal offense! This includes pocket knives and multitools (“Leatherman”) with blades as well as tear gas. Tools for setting up the tent are no problem, but please leave them in the tent and do not carry them around.
  • Wearing protective weapons (e.g. helmets and steel-toed shoes) and disguising your face are also criminal offenses, covid masks are okay though.
