Tips for a holiday at the campsite

Tips for a holiday at the campsite

The camping sites in are open again - of course with appropriate distance and hygiene regulations. What you should currently consider ...

Since the corona requirements can differ from state to state, there are a few basic things to consider when planning your vacation:

Make a reservation

Due to the distance regulations, the campsite operators can only utilize their facilities to 50 to 70 percent. The space is booked up accordingly faster. Due to travel restrictions abroad, more Germans will be vacationing in their own country this year, which is causing an additional rush. Not to mention the basic urge to finally leave the house after the exit restrictions.

Find out about restrictions

Since the holiday conditions are a matter of the country, holidaymakers should inquire about the current conditions with the operator of their dream campsite. In some federal states, the sanitary buildings have to remain closed. Campsites there only accept travelers with their own sanitary facilities in their motorhomes or caravans.Therefore, pay attention to the opening times of restaurants and shops, and always have your mouth and nose mask with you.

Plan activities in advance

Sports and leisure activities are still only available and permitted to a limited extent. Contactless outdoor sports such as tennis or yoga are possible again. If you go to the beach, you can surf there again. Swimming pools and wellness areas on campsites, on the other hand, can only be used to a limited extent or not at all.

Internationally, the first countries such as Denmark, Sweden, the Netherlands, Croatia, Luxembourg, Poland and Austria have fully or at least partially reopened their campsites. In addition, the Foreign Office is lifting the travel warning for 29 countries on June 15, which means that German camping tourists can again head for the most popular holiday and neighboring countries.
