From the Black Forest to the Baltic Sea, from the North Sea to Austria's border - Germany has many breathtaking panoramas to offer. However, the best ratings in the travel guide do not always guarantee the most beautiful natural spectacles or the most exciting adventures. That's why our secret tip is: it's all in the mix! Combine quiet, hidden spots in the Westerwald with camping and theme park offers for the whole family. Enjoy campsites far away from the crowded sites and let your soul dangle.
Even if proximity to the beach, island feeling and sea air are generally regarded as insider tips, we are convinced that the interior of the country also offers an attractive alternative for camping enthusiasts. So plan your trip to Germany's most beautiful campsites along valleys, mountains, water and forest - and don't miss the breathtaking experience of a stay in the Westerwald.
