    Found another legal possibility to "camp" in a German forest, this time it's Bavaria.

    There are also Waldjugendzeltplätz in Baden-Württemberg and Hessen.

    I know it's an old thread, but I am so pleased you resurected it. Next summer, my grandson Cameron and I are driving to Bulgaria (from the U.K.) we will take 4 or 5 days to get there, camping along the way. It would be perfect if we could plan our route around campsites that allow hammocking.
    We'll be driving through Holland, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Serbia (or Romania) then into Bulgaria. We'll be there for two weeks at the International Bowyer's Gathering then drive home (another 5 days) by a different route.

    My grandson is now at the age where a European road trip with Grandad will be appreciated most.

    Stealth camping for us has never been a big issue. We respect the countryside, never leave any trace and don't light fires on overnight stops. Camp late, leave early. If we are challenged we just plead ignorance, apologise and smile a lot. It works wonders. However, camp sites that allow hammocking are prefered simply for the shower facilities.

    Eric
    Growing old is mandatory. Growing up is optional.

    I stealth camped a bit in the local forests outside of Kaiserslautern when I was there about 6 years ago. Some of this was in a hammock but most was simple tarp camping (virtually no bugs there). The few times I did it I was sure I was miles from anyone who would have cared...far off the beaten path at the end of old logging roads.

    The last time was just before Christmas. A visiting friend and I set up as far from any village or road as we could locate on the map. It snowed a few inches over night and made for a beautiful morning. We set a small fire and started making breakfast. Just then two ladies in their 60s speed walked up the path and passed us just chattering and shaking their heads. I'm not pretty sure there's not a square foot in Germany that doesn't get a group of elderly power walkers across it at some point.
