Switzerland, Central, Bern, Meiringen
Alan Rogers Review
AlpenCamping is a small family site located just west of Meiringen, an important winter sports resort and hiking centre in the summer with good road and rail links. Opened in 2007, the enthusiastic owners have developed this into a good all-year site (closed November) and continue to make steady improvements. There are 54 touring pitches, some occupied by seasonal caravans, which are flat and grassy and all have electrical connections and many have water. A further 32 pitches are occupied by well maintained residential units. This is a simple site with few amenities but there is an excellent centrally located toilet block and a small shop for essentials.
Meiringen is surrounded by stunning mountain scenery and there is a great deal to see in the area. The dramatic Reichenbach Falls are just ten minutes away, and are, of course, famous for the demise of Sherlock Holmes. Now there is even a museum here dedicated to the great detective! Even more dramatic are the many mountain walks in the area, many of which are easily accessible from the site. During the week some aircraft noise is possible from the nearby airbase in Spring and Autumn.
Heated toilet block with good showers includes facilities for disabled visitors and a baby changing unit. Washing machine and dryer. Drying area for ski kit. Small shop for essentials with coffee machine. Undercover area with tables, chairs and a microwave for open-air catering. Inflatable pool (in summer). Communal barbecue. Community room with tables, easy chairs, games, TV and books. Winter sauna room. Play area. Dogs accepted (max. 2). WiFi throughout.
From Bern take the A6 motorway towards Interlaken and Thun. At Interlaken, join the A8 towards Spiez. Continue on road 11 to Meiringen, cross the railway and turn left from where the site is well signed.Link to campsite location map on google
