We're going to Austria in a motorhome!
Caravanningists in Austria have nothing to complain about. There are many facilities that offer their hospitality. Usually these are well-equipped resorts, clean and modern with many amenities. When you add a picturesque setting to it, you don't need more luck. Well, possibly the proximity of the main point that we want to see during the vacation. If you are going to Vienna by motorhome, the campsites close to it will enchant you. Not only are they great as a starting point to the city. They are well organized and have high quality accommodation options. It is a real pleasure to rest on such a campsite.
The first example is Donaupark Camping Tulln . This is a very nice property located next to the small town of Tulln on the Danube (Tulln an der Donau). It is extremely beautiful in itself, and the place it is located is an added advantage. It is located on the Austrian Danube, in close proximity to the Aubad artificial recreation reservoir. The surrounding landscape is decorated with numerous hills and the greenery of the Vienna Woods. Nature lovers and those who want to visit Vienna eagerly come here.

The campsite has a campsite and pitches for campers and caravans. For those who do not have a house on wheels, there are places in mobile homes with terraces. The property has 20 mobile homes with a comfortably furnished seating area, separate bathroom, toilet and kitchen. Depending on the chosen option, guests can choose from 2 or 3 bedrooms. Unfortunately, pets are not allowed in the cabins. It is worth noting, however, that this is a dog-friendly campsite. There is no need to pay for their stay. The keepers only have to make sure that they keep their pet on a leash all the time while walking around the grounds.
As for the plots, you will find about 130 of them here. They are of various sizes, from 90 to 120 m², which means that you will even accommodate a large motorhome. The sites are arranged in circles around water sources. All plots have power connections. The luxurious ones also have their own access to water and a sewage disposal point. You can stay in the lot in a sunnier or shaded area. There are trees everywhere, so it's incredibly green.
From April to September, the camp site has a restaurant called Taverne2. It serves delicious dishes made of regional products. You can order lunch there from Monday to Friday. In addition, the restaurant organizes themed evenings for gourmets of grilled meat several times a week.
Camping in Austria - a holiday on the Danube
Even when you came to Vienna by motorhome, do not focus solely on it. The surrounding towns also deserve attention, especially when they are as full of flowers as Tulln an der Donau. From the campsite you can quickly reach the center of the town, which has stolen the hearts of many visitors. In warm months you will see lots of flowers here. Due to the numerous parks, the resort is even called the city of flowers. It is famous as the birthplace of the controversial painter Egon Schiele. It is also the final port for cruise ships from Vienna and a city full of fountains. You will see them in many places.
We recommend a trip to Thulln when staying at the campground. You can also use the support of a guide and get to know the surrounding attractions under his supervision. Another option is bike tours - one of the routes runs right next to the campsite. It stretches along the Danube, so great views are guaranteed.
Make sure to go to Aubad, an artificial lake, especially since as guests of the facility you have free admission. You can go swimming, rent a boat or try water skiing. Sports fans will play football, basketball, volleyball and baseball. If you don't feel like it, there is a sandy beach with a sunbathing area waiting for you. The youngest ones will love playgrounds and slides.
Rest by the Vienna Forest
As you can see, coming to Vienna by motorhome is a great idea. However, if you'd rather stay with your mobile home closer to the city, no problem. Approx. 22 km east of Donaupark Camping Tulln is another noteworthy site. This is Donaupark Camping Klosterneuburg . Many tourists consider it to be the best place to visit Vienna. It is located in the beautiful surroundings of recreational areas, called the green lungs of the city.
The Vienna Forest (Wienerwald) stretches on the west side of Vienna, from the Danube valley to the thermal springs. The location of the campsite right on its edge allows campers to enjoy the closeness of nature. At the same time, in 2 minutes you will get to the bus station or city rail station and you will get to the city. Klosterneuburg with its medieval abbey is also nearby.
There is a bicycle path just outside the campsite. As with its predecessor, also here it stretches along the Danube. It is easy to understand why both objects are so popular among fans of two wheels.
The offer of Donaupark Camping Klosterneuburg will appeal to both active people and families with children. The little ones will have fun on the playground and go crazy on the trampoline. For those who cannot imagine a vacation without swimming, there are two options. The first is a riverside bathing beach , while the second is a visit to the nearby Happyland Leisure Center. There are outdoor and indoor swimming pools as well as numerous sports fields waiting for those willing.

The campsite has around 100 pitches, 70-90 m² in size. All pitches are dedicated and equipped with a 6.3 amp CEE plug power supply. Some additionally have a TV connection. Enthusiasts of sightseeing from the height of the bicycle seat can set up a tent on the campsite. Two such zones have been designated in the area of the center.
Those who prefer more convenience can rent a mobile home. The campsite has 6 of them, each of which provides comfort in a seating area. It also has a bathroom with toilet and a fully equipped kitchen. On warm days, you can sit out on the terrace and enjoy your stay outdoors.
As with the property on Tulln, pets are not allowed in the mobile home's guests.
If not camping, then what?
We realize that for the multitude of people going to Vienna by motorhome, what matters most is ... Vienna. During their vacation, they want to see as much as possible. They plan to spend time on long trips, get to know the local cuisine, soak up the culture ... Generally speaking, they are planning to go on a very active trip. As a result, they expect a minimum from the accommodation, because they will practically only sleep in it. For this group of tourists, the right solution may not be a campsite, but a camper-park . Caravanningists have a parking space there and access to appropriate connections (water, electricity, sewage). What more could you want if you mainly want to visit?
Stop at Reisemobil Stellplatz Wien
Overnight in a special car park is an option willingly chosen by amateurs of free travel. They use it, whether it is going to Vienna by motorhome or to another city (and country).

You must admit that you would like to rest as soon as possible, tired of sitting behind the wheel.
It is worth praising not only the fact that the organizers did not spare parking space for those who went to Vienna with their motorhome.
