FAQ

Camping PINK

What is Camping PINK?

We are a family-run camping business that has been in existence for over 20 years. Already in the times of the Austria Ring, we opened our campsite for the big events. In the meantime, the small, fine camping site has developed into a large camping and glamping area. The ongoing expansions and improvements are due to the motorsport passion of the operators, the brother and sister team Karl and Helmut Mayer, who want to offer all motorsport fans a cosy "camping home" around the events at the Red Bull Ring. This gives you the opportunity to experience the racing action up close.

The camping area managed by us covers a total of 250,000 m² and is divided into the following areas

  • Camping PINK at Birkmoarhof
  • Camping PINK Mayer/Baumessner
  • Camping PINK Premium
Difference Camping PINK am Birkmoarhof and Camping PINK Premium?

The name Camping PINK am Birkmoarhof (to Formula 1, to MotoGP) is derived from the vulgar name of the farm Birkmoar. This is where the camping got its start decades ago. Since the beginning, great care has been taken to ensure clean and well-maintained sanitary facilities. The covered courtyard area invites you to sit together with food and drink and offers a party programme in the evenings. Lush green camping meadows on level pitches and pitches with a slope characterise the areal. You get pitches of up to 50 m² to have enough space for your camping equipment. Camping PINK Mayer/Baumessner is directly adjacent.

At Camping PINK Premium you enjoy camping comfort at the highest level. A unique event village rises up for Formula 1, inviting you to immerse yourself in the world of glamping with prefabricated accommodation. Enjoy the luxury of simply arriving with your suitcase and moving in. Furthermore, spacious pitches of up to 70 m² and top-quality sanitary facilities ensure an unforgettable camping stay. All this is rounded off with a gastro and event area that shines with culinary delights and entertainment.

Camping PINK Silent Premium is really quiet around the MotoGP. For the first time and uniquely in Spielberg, we are looking forward to welcoming guests in our separate "Silent Camping Area" who are consciously looking for peace and quiet and want to camp away from the hustle and bustle. And all this is paired with spacious pitches and top-quality sanitary facilities.

Where is Camping PINK located?

What distinguishes all three areas is the unique location, because you are staying in the immediate vicinity of the Red Bull Ring. This means you are very close to the entrance North/Schönberg, as well as the main entrance Start-Finish. The walking distance from the campsite to our catering and sanitary facilities is no more than 5 minutes, and to the Red Bull Ring itself, around 10-15 minutes.

Do you act sustainably?

We do what we do with passion and thoughtfulness so that we act in an environmentally and socially conscious way. Our goal is to leave a positive footprint on nature and society and to encourage our campers to get involved. In this way, we consciously want to help shape the future in a sustainable way and make it fit for the future. For example, in the catering area we only use materials for cups and place settings that are obtained from sustainable raw materials.

Please choose the products you take to the campsite according to the aspects of sustainability and carbon footprint. You will receive rubbish bags for residual waste and plastic on arrival. At the campsite you will find rubbish islands where you can separate plastic materials, glass, organic waste and paper. Please help us to avoid and separate waste, thank you!
