Go-karting is a sport that I discovered this year thanks to a good friend who organized a go-karting event. I totally fell in love with speeding with those super cool open-wheel cars. Thus, I decided to organize a go-karting event for the Munich Travel Community. There are indeed a lot of places in Bavaria where you can go-kart. The one that I picked is in Kaufbeuren in Allgäu as I have found a pretty good price deal there. The place was awesome, so I would like to tell you all about it. 🙂
1. Getting a ticket in advance
So the deal is 2 and a half hours go-karting for only 49,90€. This is a pretty good deal considering the prices for go-karting.
Every go-kart place works differently. Here there are 8-minute sessions. We had time for 6 sessions in 2 and a half hours. After each session, you have to get out of the car and queue up again. While the drivers are on the track, you already have to take a seat in the go-kart and as soon as they parked their go-kart, you are ready to go.
If you go during the week, I assume you can manage to take at least 1o rounds as you don’t have to wait for others that much. In the next section, I’ll get to the prices and you’ll see that even if you manage only 5 rounds, the deal is definitely worth it. 🙂

3. How to get to the Allgäuer Hallenkartbahn from Munich

You can just take a regional train to Kaufbeueren using the Bayern-Ticket. Then, from the train station of Kaufbeueren, you can walk to the go-kart hall with the help of Google Map. Simple google Allgäuer Hallenkartbahn. There is no buy running between the train station and the go-kart hall.
