Our Pitches

210 tourist pitches, semi-shaded or sunny

Most of the pitches have electricity but there is also a section on the campsite without electricity, ideal for backpackers and bicycle tourists. All pitches are different depending on terrain and trees, which gives the campsite its characteristic charm. The dimensions on average from 70 to 90 m².

Don’t forget a good hammer and strong pegs, because clay soil and stones are hard, grass doesn’t grow, because the sun is shining here 🙂 For tents, we also recommend a tarpaulin to protect the floor from your tent.

No rental of mobile homes, tents or refrigerators!

In the evening at 10:00 p.m. the lighting in the washing-up and shower areas goes out, the lights in the toilets are on all night. Please do not make noise at night, due to the quietness of the campsite.
