Bielefeld is a beautiful city, even if it is not one of the biggest tourist regions in the country, it has all kinds of things to offer. With the campervan, the journey starts right here in the city centre. There is also a lot to see there. The beautiful Sparrenburg is Bielefeld's landmark. It is located in the middle of the city centre on a 180-metre high hill called Sparrenberg. It was built as early as the 13th century. There is a 37-metre-high tower on top of the castle. Nearby, in the old city centre, stands the Nicolai Church, which has an exciting history as the oldest church in the city. When you rent a camper van in Bielefeld, you should at least take a look at the carillon, which plays 3 times a day. The winged altar from Antwerp is also well worth seeing. The Old Market with its beautiful merchants' houses and the town house at Obernstraße 51 are also part of the city centre. These are the oldest houses in the city, built around 1500. The old town hall is also nostalgic and is located here. Today there is a theatre inside. Art lovers can use the first day of their camper van trip to visit the Kunsthalle in Bielefeld. Pablo Picasso and Henry Moore are just two of the artists whose works are exhibited here. The Heimat-Tierpark Olderdissen is very popular for families with children, as there are over 400 animals, including bears, wolves, rams and eagles. Admission is free.
The climate is moderate, like everywhere else in Germany. In summer it can get up to 40 degrees and very hot, especially because Bielefeld is inland and in the lowlands. In winter, temperatures are around 0 degrees and snow can also fall from time to time. The most ideal times to travel are in spring and autumn, because then the main travel season and the heat of summer is over. Hikes in the natural areas around Bielefeld are possible then, or a bicycle tour through the fields and meadows, as well as through the city centre. In spring and autumn, the average temperature is 20 degrees.
Bielefeld has a number of campsites for campervans, but it is usually not necessary to stay in the city. Find a nice spot in the countryside and enjoy the peace, seclusion and nature. Between Herford and Bielefeld, for example, there is a wonderful campsite that attracts not only families with children, but all camping enthusiasts. Detmold is to the east of Bielefeld, Münster is to the west and Paderborn is to the south - all three cities and their region offer numerous pitches for campers. Münster, with its old city centre and huge zoo just outside the city, is well worth a visit. The Münstlerland, flat and with lots of nature, is a popular holiday destination. Whether with an alcove, panel van or camper van - holidays here in the region are in a class of their own. On a campervan holiday, you can also arrive by car, which is then parked somewhere near the campsite. The actual journey continues with the camper van, into the surrounding area and also to Paderborn, Herford or other surrounding towns.
Bielefeld is a large city in Lower Saxony. It is located at a hub and is therefore regularly served by ICEs from all over Germany, which stop at the main station. From here, it is only a stone's throw to Campstar Station and your campervan. Munich, Hamburg, Hanover, Cologne and also Berlin are connected to Bielefeld by an ICE line. If you are coming from the countryside, you can travel to these cities by regional train and change trains there. If you want to travel by plane, you have to land at the airport in Paderborn and continue by train to Bielefeld. Once you have arrived at your destination, you should start planning what you want to visit, because that is what a campervan tour is all about. If cities are on the agenda, the campervan should be parked properly. However, there is also a lot to see in the rural areas around Bielefeld. The type of campervan is decided at the time of booking. If a family is arriving, there will be an alcove so that everyone can sleep. Box vans are more for couples in love.
When renting a camper van in Bielefeld, there are a few things to consider. It is important that the insurances for the camper have all been properly booked. This is the only way to exclude some damage in advance. When insuring the glass, underbody and inventory, it is important that there is 100 percent reimbursement in the event of an accident. Tolls are not charged on German motorways. The campervan counts as a car or private vehicle, only trucks have to pay a toll when they use the German motorways. Insurance cover is very important when renting a car, as is mileage. It makes a difference whether all kilometres are included or perhaps only 1000. Anything over that can be really expensive.
