Our Best Campsites In Germany
A stay at one of our best campsites in Germany provides the ideal base from which to explore the country’s orchards and meadows, lakes and rivers and forest-covered hills. Kinzigtal in the heart of the Black Forest is a rural retreat with plenty of nature-inspired attractions on your doorstep.
If you’re a fan of the odd glass of wine, our German campsite Landal Warsberg, in the Mosel Valley is a great pick. Its hilltop position gives you fantastic views from your tent or mobile home each morning, and it’s only a short distance to a traditional Rhineland watermill town filled with good restaurants and shops.
Where to go camping in Germany
Germany is a vast nation with many beautiful regions for a memorable camping holiday, whether you want a riverside retreat, a forest getaway or a break in the mountains.
The southern district of Bavaria is where you’ll find the snow-capped peaks of the German Alps that have long been a destination for skiers and those after a traditional Alpine experience. Just west of them, near Stuttgart, is the Black Forest, another key mountain range famous for its thick evergreen woodland, spa towns and innumerable hiking trails. Campsite Kinzigtal is ideal if you are looking for campsites in the black forest.
Many prefer to head to hilly Mosel, one of Germany’s thirteen major wine regions that’s found along the fertile banks of the river Moselle. Continue on to North Germany and you’ll discover fascinating cities like Hamburg and Berlin as well as the country’s only stretch of coastline.
