Campings Switzerland – a holiday like in a movie about travelers

Switzerland has everything you need to make it a perfect holiday destination. It delights with nature – wild, untouched by civilization and extremely diverse. Here you can find emerald lakes with crystal-clear waters, endless stretches of meadows, carefully managed vineyards and, of course, mountains: majestic, intimidating with their power. The Alps account for as much as 60% of the country's area, so lovers of trekking and other mountain activities will certainly spend the time spent here well. To be able to experience the closeness of nature to the fullest, it is worth choosing a camping in Switzerland as a place to stay. Imagine what it will be like: waking up to the sound of birds singing, resting in the shade of trees, falling asleep with a view of the stars and sometimes even the entire Milky Way... Sounds fantastic, right?

But Switzerland is not only about nature. It is also an extremely rich, centuries-old culture, promoted as part of various festivals, as well as great cuisine (which is a unique combination of German, French and Italian flavors), perfectly preserved monuments and local folk traditions. This country will be an ideal holiday destination for nature lovers, tireless explorers, enthusiasts of various activities and people who are looking for relaxation in beautiful scenery. Camping holidays in Switzerland will allow you to experience the beauty of this extraordinary region of Europe in a full and authentic way.

Switzerland is a camper-friendly country. It offers a wide selection of high-standard campsites that provide comfortable conditions, but at the same time allow for close, undisturbed contact with nature.

Campings Switzerland – where to stay?

Whether you and your family or friends prefer to stay by the lake, in the mountains or in the picturesque countryside, you will find suitable campsites here. Switzerland is extremely developed in this respect – caravanning is a popular way to spend your holidays.

Switzerland is famous for its lakes – there are as many as 1.5 thousand of them in its territory! The most popular of them is definitely Lake Constance, located at the junction of the borders of three countries: Germany, Austria and Switzerland. This is a place that provides a lot of attractions – even the most active tourists will fill their holiday schedule here in 100%. There are many smaller and larger towns located on the shores of the lake, so there is definitely a lot to choose from. You can do various water activities here, including diving, but also use your time in a different way: on walks, bicycle trips or just lazing by the water. An interesting proposition for a holiday is also Lake Lucerne, Lake Maggiore, located right next to the border with Italy and thus characterized by a Mediterranean climate, or the largest lake in the Alps: Lake Geneva.

Campsites in Switzerland are also a great starting point for trips to the mountains. You can go hiking, climbing, mountain biking or winter sports here. Campsites and tent sites located in picturesque valleys guarantee the proximity of hiking and biking trails, as well as ski resorts, and at the same time give you the opportunity to relax in a peaceful, quiet environment. Unforgettable adventures in the mountains can start from places like Zermatt, Interlaken or Bern.

Or maybe the countryside and an idyllically peaceful campsite? Switzerland also has this less touristy face. If you are looking for peace, quiet and rest in stunning scenery, you will certainly find it all here. Small, intimate campsites in Switzerland allow you to get as close to nature as possible, but at the same time offer a high standard and comfortable conditions.

Camping Switzerland – trips for the whole family

When planning a camping trip in Switzerland, plan your itinerary right away – there are so many attractions and places to visit here that it's really hard to decide which one to choose!

The village of Lauterbrunnen, located in the Alpine valley of the same name, is definitely worth a visit. This place is so fabulously beautiful that it cannot be described in words – you have to experience this place with all your senses. Lauterbrunnen is located between giant walls of mountain peaks, and its buildings are made of traditional wooden huts. It is famous for its waterfalls – the most popular of them is Staubbach, falling from almost 300 meters and being the highest waterfall in Europe. Another charming Swiss village is Grindelwald at the foot of the Eiger. It is a popular holiday destination and the largest ski resort in the area.

Switzerland is also about cities and towns. Romantic Lausanne, which seduces with a fabulous view of the lake, Montreux with a promenade bustling with life at any time of the day or night, Thun with a 12th-century fortress towering over it, UNESCO-listed Bern, charming Lucerne, Zug perched on the turquoise lake Zugersee, always sunny Lugano… We could point out without an end. Regardless of which area of Switzerland you go camping, you will find plenty of cities and towns to visit.

Campsites in Switzerland can also be a great starting point for exploring this extraordinary country from a different perspective: museums, art galleries or events promoting local culture. For example, the appenzeller cheese factory in Stein, watchmakers' workshops in the picturesque Jura region or the Lindt chocolate museum in Zurich are worth a visit.

Trains in Switzerland

Speaking of Switzerland, one of the country's greatest tourist attractions, the panoramic trains, cannot be overlooked. Bernina Express and Glacier Express run through spectacular routes that can be admired through large windows. In addition to covering the distance on the tracks, some routes are covered by steamboat or bus. You can visit cities such as Lucerne, Montreux, Chur and Broc. On the panorama train, the journey itself is the goal. What's more, it will take you to many places that cannot be reached by car. If you dream of an intimate campsite in Switzerland, located somewhere in the woods, by a lake or a river, this is a jackpot.

These trains carry passengers as part of the Grand Train Tour of Switzerland. They give you the opportunity to get to know 11 lakes and 5 places from the UNESCO World Heritage List. Just buy a Swiss Travel Pass to start this amazing trip. If you are interested in camping on Lake Lucerne, visiting cities or conquering alpine peaks, don't hesitate.
