Caravanning In The Black Forest


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

 

After a successful trip to France with our caravan for the first time last year which we thoroughly enjoyed we decided this year to be a bit more adventurous and take three weeks (last 2 in August and 1st in September) touring through Belgium, Germany, Switzerland and France (again).

Our main stop over (8 nights) will be in the Black Forest region of Germany followed by Lucerne in Switzerlad (4 nights) has anyone any experience of the sites in these areas and any places worth visiting.

A lot of the Germans go back to work middle week August so home sites may be quieter,likewise many of the Dutch who have spent the summer in Spain or South of France are also on way home. ..so good time to travel. ..... Have not spent any rally time in Switzerland but have stayed adjacent to borders. ..Black Forest, some nice sites, most very Germanic therefore quite spartan but usually ultra-clean. .......Last stayed at Camping Bulhoff at Titisee, on top of a cliff overlooking the lake. ..

p. s some Black Forest sites close end September and reopen for skiing later in year.

The largest cuckoo clock in the world. The largest toilet in the world. What's not to dislike with the Black Forest?

 

Alisehof at Bad Rippoldsau/ Schapbach is a well respected campsite by many UK visitors.

 

Checkout the Bear and Wolf sanctuary just up the road. ...the lovely historic town of Schiltach with its 5 free museums (everything from medicine to bathrooms!) . ....the open air museum of agricultural life ( amazing log building village).

 

It's a lovely area for scenic drives, walking, eating and drinking as well!

Bear in mind towing in Switzerland adds 66euros for two vignettes (buy from www. tolltickets. com before you go) and of course Swiss Francs (stating the obvious)

Thanks for the replies so far, interesting comments good one about the extra cost of the vignette didn't think about that.

 

I'm interested in peoples experiences of stopping at sites in the Black Forest area, I'm trying to save a lot of hassle in choosing the wrong one as it's a long way to go to find you don't like some where.

 

All feedback gratefully accepted.

A good few years since our last visit but we found Camping Kirchzarten to be an excellent base, a tram ride from Freiburg and a short run to Titisee.

Visited Alisehof last year. This is the second time having visited it a few years ago. Nearest towns are Wolfach and Freudenstadt-both are worth a visit. A direct cycle path takes you to Wolfach. Freudenstadt is the busier with more shops and delightful centre square. The campsite is relatively quiet with excellent facilities. Small shop at reception is well stocked and food pizzas- served in the evening. Site owners are very helpful and speak good English. Excellent walks from the site. Bear park is a few km from the site. Swimming pool is less than a mile from the site. My wife cycled most days for a swim. However pool could be busy with locals. Pitches are reasonable in size. last year we stopped for 7days in July and site had many pitches available. The top end of the site is mainly static and few were occupied. Reception/bar area is excellent for a cool beer after a day out. We travelled from Heidelberg and travelled on to the Alsace. Highly recommended.
