And then there are the metropolis cities such as Hamburg and Munich… Germany has it all!
On holiday in Germany – another world
The Lüneburger Heide, the largest continuous heathland in Europe is located in northern Germany. It is a popular destination for a motoring holiday Germany. The small town of Celle is right on the edge and has a well preserved centre full of half timbered merchants’ houses and a huge castle surrounded by a moat. Other places for an interesting day trip from your camp site in northern Germany are the Hanseatic towns of Lübeck, Bremen and Hamburg.
The Eiffel is located further to the south, a wooded area full of lakes formed by craters and trickling mountain streams, also known as Little Switzerland. This make the Eiffel perfect for those who like long walks and the countryside. And when you are staying at a camp site in the Eiffel be sure to visit beautiful Trier, Germany’s oldest town! From your Eiffel camp site you can follow the Mosel upstream and visit the wine growing areas to sample a glass in the wine centres of Rüdesheim, Eberbach or Bernkastel.
Another famous destination for motoring holidays in Germany is the Black Forest (Schwarzwald). There are wonderful views here of valleys, mountain streams and waterfalls carved out by the glaciers, and no fewer than 7000 km of marked footpaths. So there are plenty of camp sites to suit hikers in the Black Forest! Baden Baden as its name suggests is one of the principal spa resorts in the area and is a popular day out for many people who go camping in the Black Forest.
Bavaria borders onto the Czech Republic and Austria. A huge area with old traditions, friendly locals and undulating scenery filled with forests of conifers and interesting little towns, which has plenty on offer for a wonderful motoring holiday. If you want to go out for a day in Bavaria you are spoilt for choice. To Munich for example for the traditional Oktoberfeste where everything revolves around the theme of Beer and Bratwurst (German sausage!), or to the chique BMW museum. Würzburg is noted for its picturesque centre full of Baroque and Rococo influences and of course for its famous castle high up overlooking the river.
