Alan Rogers Review
On a hilltop close to the village of Ottendorf, this small, eco-friendly campsite provides a quiet base from which to explore the countryside of Saxony, whilst offering opportunities for cooks and budding chefs to improve their techniques and expand their repertoire. There are just 40 grassy pitches, some on level open ground, others in a former orchard where the mature trees provide a little shade. An old wooden barn houses modern sanitary facilities and the ‘Esswerkstatt’, where the culinary activities take place. Beyond the site lie farm fields with woods, and scattered villages beyond. The historic town of Frankenberg is just eight kilometres away.
Here you will find shops, bars and restaurants as well as several interesting sites including the Sachsenburg Castle, the medieval Town Hall and the church of St. Giles. The city of Chemnitz is also an easy drive away, and its landmarks include the Old Town Hall with its Renaissance portal and the red medieval tower, which was part of the city wall. The Chemnitz petrified forest is one of the very few in existence, dating back several million years. The heart of the city has been rebuilt since reunification, and is a mixture of small shops and huge shopping centres.
Modern sanitary facilities with underfloor heating, hot showers, 3 family showers and a shower and WC for disabled visitors. Dishwashing and laundry facilities. Bar with patio. Breakfasts, lunches and evening meals by arrangement. Indonesian evenings (weekly) and Sunday brunches. Common room with books and games. ‘Esswerkstatt’ for regular cooking workshops, cabaret, exhibitions, readings and lectures. Farmersgolf.
