FIV Feature X CM Models

  • Planning: Think through your camping trip, consider the weather and find a route you can take to explore beautiful places and stay at suitable campsites.
  • Checklist: Create a personal camping checklist with the necessary equipment – either on paper or on your smartphone. With a reminder, you won’t forget anything.
  • Infrastructure: For the “first time” it would be advantageous to choose a larger campsite with paved pitches, new sanitary facilities, a kiosk or small market. This is comfortable and you can also exchange with other campers and gather your first experiences.
  • Technical check: If you rent a motorhome or buy a new one, you should discuss the most important technical issues. Otherwise, it can quickly happen that you do not know how to fill a water tank.
  • Test equipment at home: Try out your camping equipment at home before your holiday. If possible, pitch the tent in the garden and familiarise yourself with the gas cooker, inflatable camping mat etc. in advance.
  • Transportable household: Take hygiene items from home with you. You don’t have to buy new things like a brush, sponge, washing-up liquid and tea towels. It also makes sense to bring a broom, kitchen roll, storage boxes and garbage bags, which most people have at home anyway.
  • Weatherproof, warm clothing: Even if the forecast is for two weeks of sunshine, pack clothes for all weathers so you stay dry even if it rains. It can cool down in the evenings when camping.
  • Arrive early enough: Plan enough time to arrive. Many campsites allocate pitches in the morning. Then you still have a choice without a reservation and can set up the tent or caravan in peace.
  • Meal planning: Most campers cook with a built in kitchen or kitchenette. Here it would be an advantage to find recipes that you can cook well in a small space. You can also pack some food and buy small items in camping markets.
  • Close tent, camper and caravan: As soon as you are on a hike during the day, you should lock your dwelling and make it rainproof. This will prevent mosquitoes and other animals from pestering you at night. You also protect your furniture from rain and showers.
Tent, roof tent or camper

More and more younger people are becoming interested in camping. Camping, sleeping in a sleeping bag and cooking on the gas stove and the view of pure nature, many young people find relaxing. A good night ‘s sleep is important when camping – and German campsites in particular provide restful nights. So you can stay just about anywhere with your own car, tent or camper.

Badem-Württemberg: Federal state in Germany

In the southwest of Germany lies Badem-Württemberg, which borders on France and Switzerland. Besides the worth seeing cities like Heidelberg, Freiburg and Ulm, this federal state offers a lot of nature. Hiking trails lead through different mountains and bodies of water. If you love water, you can walk along the Danube and the Rhine or enjoy the rivers Kocher and Tauber.

If you have not yet experienced the Black Forest National Park, the very first thing you should do is hike this outstanding area. Here you can discover special tree species, amphibians and other animals for days. Sometimes a fox, badger or brown hare runs across your path.

Map and landscape in Baden-Württemberg

Baden-Württemberg is located in the southwest of Germany. Well-known places are for example Stuttgart, Heidelberg or Ravensburg and Ulm. For campers who like to go hiking in nature, here is exactly the right map to orientate yourself where a river or national park is located in Baden-Württemberg.

Camping Tip: Lake Constance

A time with the bike around Lake Constance; From Germany, to Switzerland and up to Austria? Sleep in a luxury hotel or experience a lot on a farm? At the 63km long lake in the foothills of the Alps, Lake Constance, there is something for everyone. Every summer people travel from all over the world and sail, windsurf and swim in the lake or relax on beautiful beaches.

Camping advantages at Lake Constance

Always have your bed with you, sleep in spontaneously and have a late breakfast – camping has many advantages, but it takes a bit more planning than a hotel stay. You can’t get more “in the middle of nature” than with a caravan or motorhome and you can save a lot of money compared to a hotel. And if you don’t like the place, you can simply move on.

Baden-Württemberg Video: Tengen, Baden & Co.
