Austria | Discovering AlpenCamping’s Stunning Alpine Location…Score 79%Score 79%

Perhaps it’s more luxury alpine camping due to the cost and facilities at this tastefully decorated campsite… but camping in the high mountains is truly something special at Alpencamping

Imagine spending the evening on your pitch, breathing in the clear mountain air while you enjoy the spectacular views all around you at the award winning AlpenCamping in Austria. For those hoping to spend a few days in Austria like us, our route has seen us travel westwards from Villach through the Tauern National Park. Enjoying the Gerlos Alpine Road towards Aufenfeld, before heading onto the Stubai Glacier and then north into the mountains at Tiroler Zugspitze.

Anyone visiting AlpenCamping will immediately notice two things. Firstly the friendly feel to the campsite due to the fact it’s still a ‘family run business’… so it’s likely you’ll be met and greeted by a daughter in reception, taken to your pitch by the owner or see the ‘design statements’ from the mother across the entire site. This certainly works for us, as we felt welcomed and both girls were immediately at ease in the campsite.

 

Alpine Luxury

The second thing you’ll notice is the luxurious nature of the central reception, bar, terrace & spa/swimming complex. With sweeping views down the valley and the beautiful ‘alpine’ style buildings… it’s hard not to want to leave the motorhome and spend your day in this central area. Especially as they aim to renovate it further in 2017 and add some more swimming facilities and log cabins to make it even more of a ‘wellness/luxury spa’ location.

Family Fun

It’s easy to see why this regularly achieves 5-star ADAC campsite status. Especially as it offers plenty of camping/spa packages (from 122Euros for 5 days per/person)  or camping/dining packages (from 164Euros for a week per/person). However, it’s probably not a campsite for families that enjoy an active campsite/resort life (see Camping Krk Resort in Croatia or Italy’s Piani di Clodia). Although it’s clear they’ve tried where possible, the campsite itself has limited on-site facilities to entertain older children. For example, the swimming pool is probably too small for older children to feel comfortable jumping in and out of yet families with young children will love the smaller ‘toddler pool’.
The sanitary facilities are housed in a beautiful alpine wooden chalet, and are full of fresh flowers and plants to try and make them look as attractive as possible. If you’re looking for gleaming ‘state of the art’ shower blocks (like Tiroler Zugspitze) this isn’t the campsite for you… but they were more than sufficient for us.

Perhaps the best way to sum up this campsite is to show you a picture of their campsite shop.(see below). It’s full of beautiful things you see across the campsite and could easily add to your house at home. Think candle holders, heart shaped art or even bird boxes. Yet the actual ‘campsite shop’ part to this shop is tucked around the corner and is only a quarter of the size of the whole room. For some this isn’t enough, or others it offers a chance to relax and enjoy a browse. It’s that type of campsite, some will absolutely fall in love with it. Others might prefer a different ‘resort style’ campsite.

 

Another busy day tomorrow perhaps….

As regular readers will know, we’ve taken the girl’s grandparents on this month long section of our wider European Roadtrip. And they really loved the campsite for it’s views and the stunning terrace bar to grab a morning coffee after a lazy dip in the pool. For us, we’ve loved enjoying something different. A campsite that truly can offer ‘panoramic pitches’, but we’d probably only manage a few days here before our 9 & 11yr old daughters needed something more… It just shows no one campsite can have it all, can they……?

 

Another busy day tomorrow perhaps….
