Motorcaravan Sites Review







Germany caters very well for motorcaravanners, both with campsites and with overnight parking ("Stellplatz"). These Stellplatz, (which are in addition to the normal motorway rest-areas where overnighting is allowed), come in all sizes from three to one hundred vehicles and are widely distributed. Some are free, some have a nominal charge of 4 - 7E. They may have services, (again usually a nominal charge, 1 - 2E). They are usually intended to be overnight stops, but certain sites have no time limit. I've noticed in 2003 that several sites have started charging, some with no improvement in services, but others improving towards French municipal site standards.

I have found three very useful books which are available in caravan accessory shops and many bookshops:

STELLPLATZ-ATLAS DEUTSCHLAND (SA) by PRO MOBIL and published by Hallwag International. This comes in two volumes, north and south, each of which costs 34.80DM (in 2001). The south volume contains most of the popular tourist areas, and has details and some photographs of 800+ sites (1200+ in 2003). A selection of these are given a 1 - 2 page write-up, but if your German is a bit dodgy there are simple summaries of the sites, including price, available services etc. The north volume contains 1000+ sites (in 2003), though some of these are duplicated in the south volume.

ADAC STELLPLATZ FUHRER. (SF). Very good guide containing over 1600 stellplatz details. Also some parking places for Austria and Italy.

WOHNMOBIL STELLPLATZE (WS) by Dr Dieter Semmler and published by RID-Verlag, and costing 38.80DM (in 2000). This is a more personal approach, where Dr Semmler details 300 free overnight stops that he has visited in Germany, which are close to motorway exits. The book is organised in motorway order, and details of facilities, etc. are listed for each site.

In addition, I've acquired a booklet called "Die Juzi-Liste" which is produced by J. Zimmerman. I was approached on a stellplatz by someone selling them "door to door". It costs 10DM, and contains details of over 2500 stellplatze - very good value! Details can be found at

There is also a section on German Stellplatz in the French Guide Officiel Des Etapes Camping Cars.
