gamescomCamp – The perfect place to stay during gamescom

You are searching for the best accommodation during gamescom? The gamescomCamp in the “Jugendpark” at the Rhine could be exactly what you are looking for! The biggest camp in Cologne offers you a popular place to stay, which has something to offer for everyone.


The gamesomCamp is no sparse scout camp, how you might know it from movies or experienced yourself, but an exciting place to meet like-minded people. However you feel you will find an area that fits your needs: If you like to relax with your friends while listening to good music, the chill out zone is just right for you. You want action? Check out the sports arena. You will find plenty of equipment for badminton, Frisbee, basketball and volleyball. Of course we do not want you to do without gaming tournaments: Every night you will be able to compete with other campers and celebrate the winner on a huge screen. If you prefer to play on a computer, you will have free LTE Wi-Fi access in our internet tent. Furthermore you will have access to ten hip party locations of the Cologne KlubKommNacht on Saturday, 16 August 2014. What else makes the gamescomCamp different from a regular camp? The full-service docking station. Hand over your devices to keep them safe and pick them up fully charged.

We offer two options for those, who do not want to bring their own camping equipment: Book a comfortable camp bed in the multi-person tent or rent a „Tent 4 Friends“ with 4-6 mattresses or 6-8 camp beds. You do not want to stay the full five nights? No problem, you can also stay single nights. We recommend to arrive on Tuesday, 12 August 2014, at 5 p.m. This way you have plenty of time to warm up for largest trade fair and event highlight for interactive games.

The area is perfectly connected to public transit. Furthermore you will always have options for food. Get the day started with the breakfast buffet in the “Jugendpark”-café. There you can purchase drinks and snacks all day. Later in the day you can get a cooked dinner in the chill out zone.

All in all the gamescomCamp is no alternative to a hotel or hostel in the city, but a perfect accommodation during gamesom. Tickets are still available for Tuesday to Thursday and Saturday to Sunday. Buy your ticket now at our shop.
