    BMW Event Garmisch 2020

    Thinking i may pay a visit to the above this year. Anyone got any pearls of wisdom to offer about it?
    Where do you camp that's handy for the goings on, that sort of thing.

    Cheers

    Been twice Tony a couple o year ago
    Camping was about 7 quid for the event which is fabulously run regarding toilets and showers.
    You cant or couldnt parkup aside yer tent. All bikes went into a bike pen. Lidl was just at the entrance so beer etc. can be purchased cheap.
    Wonderful event and best I have ever been to for VFM.
    It can rain/snow in Garmish PK when I have been it was scorching hot = too hot infact
    Good luck and travel the alpinestrsse (L200 I recall)to get there from near to Konstance = Eagles nest has always been clouded over but is quite near.
    I traveled in from Landeck as well staying at Klaus's Enzian or the Motzart aside it with indoor swimming pool

    Or there is a nice camp site just up the road past the American military base,( more relaxed than the official site) shops across the road food, drink, motor parts store
    Camp site is maybe one, one half mile from the event easy walking distance

    Great event. Camping on site opens from the Thursday evening, but the welfare facilities don’t open until the Friday. Night entertainment is excellent, especially on the Saturday.

    I gather, by Welfare facilities you mean toilets and showers.

    Yes mate, I got caught out the first year I went. Better to get there Friday morning at the earliest. But you may struggle with a spot if you pitch up late on the Saturday, as it is generally heaving by then.
    The main town is literally a 10 min walk, so handy for breakfast in one of the many cafes.

    It is in a beautiful part of the country, with an amazing array of Alpine passes on the doorstep. Getting there and returning, I have tended to use the Black Forrest route. It is also a beautiful region to transit through by bike and make a stopover. Just avoid lake Konstantse.

    If you mean that to be going from the BF by Lindau towards Garmisch then I agree 100%, possibly the worst road to travel on if busy, never again.
