tenting World Gymnastics Championships

Worlds in Stuttgart was problematic as it coincided with a beer festival with 4 million attendees!

Not being able to get ANY accommodation at any reasonable price anywhere near the venue, I decided to tent.

I stayed at Campingground “Cannstatter Wasen” about 17 minutes walk from the competition.

As campgrounds go, it was lousy. But at 17 Euro / night, a bargain.

I tucked my Hubba under a concrete lip to keep the rain off.

Security was good. Showers hot. Laundry good.

I kept my worldly goods locked up at the competition media venue.

Happily the campground only got busy with drunken beer louts on weekends.

All in all, a good decision. I’ll tent again in future if accommodation is troublesome.

LAST NIGHT of the beer festival.
