Despite its manageable size, Austria boasts an impressive landscape diversity: From high alpine areas to expansive lake plains and idyllic wine regions to fairytale forest and hilly landscapes, Austria is ideal for camping in nature. After all, who wouldn't want to enjoy breathtaking views of alpine lakes and unspoiled landscapes from their campsite? That's exactly what you can do at many unparceled, Austrian campsites, which convince with their quiet location and partly also a high environmental awareness.

Austria's rich nature especially attracts adventurous campers, as it offers a wide range of activities. Camping near the Alps makes the hearts of hiking and mountain biking lovers beat faster, especially in summer. The region's campsites are great starting points for hiking and mountain biking tours and often offer you a direct connection to Austria's trail network, which stretches for thousands of kilometers. A hike along the famous Großglockner High Alpine Road with panoramic views of the Großglockner, the highest mountain in the country, followed by cooling off in the lake? No problem! Campsites for camping by the lake are plentiful in Austria.

But vacations during nature camping in Austria can also be slower paced! The eastern part of the country is characterized by large wine-growing regions that attract wine- and food-loving campers. If you picture yourself sitting in your hammock at the campground with a glass of regional wine in one hand and a book in the other when you think of your perfect camping vacation, then you should look for a campground in Burgenland, in Lower Austria or east of Carinthia in Styria. Camping in the east of Austria - that is enjoyment, nature and pure vacation!

France does not only offer a wide range of natural campsites for visitors, but also a very varied landscape. Particularly popular with nature campers are the steep coast in Brittany and Normandy as well as the inviting Mediterranean coast with the Côte d'Azur around Marseille and Montpellier in the southeast of the country. You will also find idyllic, nature-oriented campsites in France along the beautiful Alpine mountain ranges with Mont Blanc as the highest mountain of the Alps in the region Rhône-Alpes.

On the Atlantic coast in the west of the country, nature lovers enjoy the steep rocky coasts and the indescribable views of the vast ocean. Also well-known among nature campers is the Côte d'Azur on the warm Mediterranean coast in the south of France. Along the entire coast, far from the hustle and bustle of the city, you will find many dreamlike hiking trails, quiet sandy beaches and campsites with stands under inviting pine and olive trees.

For active vacationers a camping trip to the Alps is worthwhile. Where once Balmat and Paccard were the first people to climb Mont Blanc, you can discover the wonderful nature on many hiking routes along the mountain colossus today.
