Berlin: Camping Tips

The first point is planning. Think through your camping trip, consider the weather conditions and find a route that you can take to explore beautiful places and stay at suitable campsites. A checklist can also be very useful. Make a personal camping checklist of the equipment you need – either on paper or on your smartphone. With a reminder, you won’t forget anything. For the “first time” it would be an advantage to choose a larger campsite with paved pitches, new sanitary facilities, a kiosk or a small market. This is comfortable and you can also exchange ideas 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. 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 mattress etc. beforehand. Take hygiene items from home with you. You don’t need 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 clothes: 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.

You should also arrive early enough. Plan enough time for the arrival. 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. Most campers cook with a built in kitchen or cat kitchen. Here it would be an advantage to look for recipes that you can cook well in a small space. You can also pack some food and buy small items in camping markets. Remember to close your tent, camper or caravan when you leave your camp. As soon as you are out hiking during the day, you should lock up your shelter and keep the rain out. This will prevent mosquitoes and other animals from pestering you at night. You will also protect your equipment from rain and showers.
