Alan Rogers Review
This is a large, comfortable site with almost 600 pitches, half of which are for touring. Being situated in Bad Dürkheim, which claims to have the world’s largest wine festival, it can understandably become quite full in high season. Touring pitches are well laid out by the lake in rows named after the local wines, good size and with shade. These are arranged on either side of a long, central arcade of growing vines and along one side of the site, there is a lake. Trees provide some shade and electrical connections are available throughout (16A). There is some noise from light aircraft, taking off and landing at the nearby airfield, especially at weekends.
Bathing is possible in the lake, which has a mostly sandy floor. There is a little beach and non-powered boats can be launched. An activity programme offers guided tours, biking, canoeing and climbing. This is a wine-growing region with many attractive villages to visit and an almost endless variety of wines to try out.
You will be greeted by Claudia Hohn and her team with good English spoken in reception. This site sets a very high standard in all areas, from the moment you arrive at the very modern efficient reception area, which contains a small shop selling fresh bread and treats (to order each morning), camping accessories and most essential items, including excellent local wine.
There are two large supermarkets a short drive away which can also be reached on foot or by bicycle as can the local town.
The sanitary blocks have teams of cleaners on duty all day and are spotless, as are the laundry rooms and baby changing facilities, there is also a modern casket toilet emptying and cleaning facility.
The site offers a selection of properties to rent from modern Mobile Homes to Wooden Barrels by the lake or luxury Chalets with showers and even Tee-Pees. Rent-a-Tent are on-site and have a selection of ready-erected tents available.
The site is in a useful location as a stop-over on the route to Southern Germany and beyond but is well suited for a longer stay to enjoy the site facilities and the local area.
A new wine bar is scheduled to open in 2022 with both inside and outside seating, this was in the final stages of construction when our assessor last visited.
