Where you can rest your head

To ensure that our guests can enjoy their time on site, those responsible for the Katholikentag are organising various options for accommodation.  

Communal accommodation 

Katholikentag also means community - and that can start with the accommodation. We offer simple and inexpensive shared accommodation. Classrooms in selected schools in the host city will be made available to participants for the duration of the Katholikentag. Breakfast is included in the price of the accommodation.  

Please bring a sleeping bag and air mattress (sleeping pad). For breakfast you will need plates, cups, cutlery and possibly a cereal bowl.  

The schools will be accessible daily from 18.00 hrs until approx. 24.00 hrs, on Wednesday the schools can be occupied from the afternoon. Departure on Sunday must be by 10.00 am.  

Family accommodation 

Families with small children can stay in special "family schools". As a rule, two families share a room and the schools reopen earlier in the afternoon. Again, please bring sleeping utensils, towels and breakfast dishes.  

Private accommodation  

Private accommodation allows for very special personal encounters during the Katholikentag: Numerous people in the host city and the surrounding area open their flats and houses to complete strangers. The hosts usually provide a small breakfast and offer a bed, a couch or a sofa.  

These accommodations are thus primarily intended for older participants, families and people with disabilities. Since the number of private accommodations is limited, we ask you to clarify in advance whether you can stay overnight with friends, acquaintances or relatives in the Stuttgart area.  

Placement fee  

We charge a flat rate of 25 Euro per person for arranging private or shared accommodation. Families pay a flat rate of 50 Euro, regardless of the number of persons. In case of cancellation after 15 April 2022, the placement fee cannot be refunded.  


If you prefer to stay in a hotel room or you have the option of arriving with a tent or camper van, please book your accommodation yourself. The Katholikentag office does not arrange hotel rooms for participants. In addition, Stuttgart-Marketing GmbH, the official tourism partner of the state capital, offers you a free reservation service. If you need more than 5 rooms, you can download a form for group bookings. The Stuttgart professionals are also happy to help you personally. You can reach them by phone from Monday to Friday (9 am - 5 pm) at 0711 / 22 28-100 or by e-mail at hotels(at)   


You can find the campsites in Stuttgart and the region here. Please send your reservation requests directly to the contact persons mentioned.
