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.
