Pitching a tent next to the racetrack, drinking a few beers with friends and enjoying a relaxing barbecue ahead of the Grand Prix – for many motor racing fans the ideal way to spend a night at the races. Camping is convenient, social and inexpensive. For major events, the Hockenheimring organises campsites directly next to the circuit. Electricity, water and sanitary facilities (showers and toilets) are provided.

Camping during the Formula 1

The pitches are available for a small charge. The price is for a pitch for five nights and two persons. It can only be booked by paying in advance.

In C2 or C3  a limited area for camping is reserved for handicapped people ("aG", "B" or "BI"). The sites must be booked in advance. We cannot guarantee that the sites are available at the ticket office.

Please note: In the time of Wednesday, from about 14:00 clock to Monday, 10:00 clock, provisional campsites for a fee flat rate are available. The booked space will only be kept until Thursday before the F1 race weekend, 24:00. After this time, a guaranteed space in the close area may no longer be possible. Then you will be assigned an outer area campsite without any claim for compensation.
The package applies to a pitch for five nights and two people and can only be purchased in advance.
