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 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 will get pitches with 30 m² or in case of booking ,overlength' up to 50 m² to have enough space for your camping equipment. Camping PINK Mayer/Baumessner is directly adjacent.

At Camping PINK Premium you will enjoy camping comfort at a high level. A unique event village rises to the Formula 1, inviting you to immerse yourself in a great motorsport weekend. Spacious pitches of 48 m² (6 x 8 m) or 70 m² (7 x 10 m) if you book ,extra length' and high-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.

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.

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.
