Camping Resort Zugspitze

Camping Resort Zugspitze

Five stars and top ranking at the “Campsite Award 2020” in the category “Permanent Accommodation - Rental Bungalows”: the holiday complex near Grainau that opened in 2014 aims high, not just with the mountains that are almost within touching distance but also with its panoramic pitches, four glamping barrels and, most of all, the luxuriously appointed mountain huts complete with open-air seating areas.

Der wenige Fahrminuten vom Bodensee entfernte „Gitz“ gilt als einer der größten Campingplätze Deutschlands

Campingpark Gitzenweiler Hof 

Just a few minutes’ drive from Lake Constance, the “Gitz” is one of Germany’s biggest campsites. Actually, it is better described as a resort, not just because of the impressive entertainment amenities but also due to the fully equipped caravans available for rent and the luxurious “Varia Homes”.

Camping Hopfensee: Blick auf den See und Bootssteg

Camping Hopfensee

Even if the spa is called “1001 Nights”, this place is in the heart of the Allgäu. However, its location on Lake Hopfen, not far from the royal castles of Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau, is like something out of a fairy tale. The same applies to the lovingly designed holiday homes and apartments. Tip for winter campers: some are situated right on the cross country trail itself ...


Naturcampingpark Isarhorn

This location could hardly be more impressive: the campsite is surrounded on three sides by the River Isar, with the Karwendel Mountain towering overhead. Stylish nature lovers sleep in wooden accommodation such as glamping barrels or Canadian log cabins.

Lech Camping

In this tranquil, park-like site north of Augsburg, campers and caravanners can find attractive pitches. However, guests looking to rent accommodation are also spoilt for choice - with guest rooms, apartments and glamping barrels all available. Good to know: close by, within the bounds of the actual site itself, there is a small lake.

Glamping in den Lackenhäuser im Knaus Campingpark

Knaus Camping Lackenhäuser

Downhill or cross country skiing? From the quiet campsite on the Dreisesselberg in the Bavarian Forest, both are within easy reach - as it boasts its own drag lift and direct access to the cross country trail. You can then warm up in the indoor swimming pool and sauna as well as in the holiday homes and mobile homes. Oh, and once winter is over you can camp here too! (only in German)


Vital Camp Bayerbach

Camping meets Wellness! And that means far more than just splashing around in the three bathing lakes: visitors enjoy year-round access to the campsite’s own thermal indoor pool, a spa area with several saunas, a steam room and much more. Guests staying on one of the campsite’s 330 pitches get free entry to the wellness centre, as do those who rent the holiday houses and apartments. (only in German)

Glamping: Waldcamping am Brombachsee im Fränkisches Seenland

Forest camping on the Brombachsee

The emphasis is less on the lake of Brombachsee, which is a 20-minute walk away, but more on the thick forest which is home to this idyllic 5-hectare site. Whether you choose to stay in the “Troll” wooden huts, the glamping pods and barrels (including child-friendly versions with bunk beds) or a spacious safari tent, you will probably never want to leave. (only in German)

Glamping: Luxuriös Campen in Waging am See in Oberbayern

Lido camping Waging am See

So what exactly is an 18-hole football golf course? The answer lies here. Along with many other answers to the question of why this campsite is one of the best in the country. As well as daily children’s and sports entertainment, the site also offers huge “Super Comfort Pitches” up to 200 square metres in size with their own hammocks, and comfortable “Wood Lodges”, caravans and glamping barrels.


Mohrenhof Franken

Families with (small) children, listen up! You should plan to spend a whole lot of time here. Why? There is a petting zoo on the open farm, a bathing lake and archery stand, go-karts, plenty of space to romp around plus some very special accommodation options such as huts and circus wagons. Any more questions? (only in German)
