Looking for some advice/recommendations from anyone who has climbed here. Mainly where to camp (paid or doss areas) & which guidebook is best. Or maybe it’s one of those convienient German crags that has the route name & grade at the bottom of each climb?!  

Any other tips welcome.

Don't camp outside of official campsites. The area is close to being closed for climbing because of stuff like that...

Naturfreundehaus Laacherseehaus is a good place.

We used Schwarze Säulen, which was fine. Everything is easy to find, because the routes are mostly defined by the crack lines.

Bring camalots....

I've only stayed once at one of the campsites there (I think the Laacher See but I could be wrong)

It was fine and well situated on a lakeside with good food & beer

BUT, at the time they had the most unbelievably bureaucratic arriving and registering that we've ever seen

I seem to remember that each tent had to have someone go there at 15:00, queue up to check-in

this put a large dent in the time for climbing

I wouldn't go again if they still have this system

Maybe HansStuttgart has more recent information

I was just there and did a blog post on it check out

I linked the guide book. Routes. Crags. And lots of other area beta.
