Glam, glamour, glamping – it’s no longer a secret, but a camping holiday with real value. Maybe you’re one of those people who thinks of camping only as a way of reminiscing of how it once was to go into an uncomfortable 2-man tent with a camping mat under your arm.
Armed with a flashlight for overnight accommodation, the path led either into your own garden at home or (in the luxury version) into an adventure during a youth leisure retreat. No matter which option you chose the result was the same. All you wanted to do afterwards was to go home, take a shower and lock yourself in the toilet for ever.
First camping experiences of middle-aged people turn out to be rather negative. On the other hand younger camping fans tend to see the positive site of the experience: caravans and mobile homes means adventure, comfort, experience, discovery and limitless travel.
Comfort and mobility for the more adventurous
These days the latest trends are luxury camping and comfortable campsites. Let’s not weep over the good old days, but rather focus on the search for new worlds with comfortable overnight accommodations and the greatest possible mobility.
Camping has changed fundamentally. What remained the same, however, is the desire for boundless relaxation, visits to previously unknown places, new friendships or a glimpse over one’s own backyard of friendly neighborhoods.
Regional sightseeing, wellness weekends, spa stays and a breath of fresh air are together with landscape discovery tours or exploring areas by bike among the adventurous activities a family can take. You don’t want to miss out on anything? Great, because glamping doesn’t just meet the demands of the guests. Luxurious camping sites, safari tents, tree houses with ocean views, private bathrooms, fully-equipped kitchens, WiFi, your own Jacuzzi – there are no limits to luxury camping and certainly no limits to designs.
With a lot of creativity and the will to create something very special, more and more campsites and accommodations are being created for vacationers and explorers who are used to comfort and seeking luxury.
Vintage gypsy caravans with comfortable equipment by the Baltic Sea
Luxurious camping experiences have become more and more popular in Germany. Old campsites are being converted, new mobile accommodation is being set up and cultural or ecological features are being enhanced with overnight accommodation. In addition, creative and unusual sleeping accommodations are just as much on offer as romantic, wild, adventurous, secluded, sociable, urban, rural or animal related activities.
Zebras making a quick visit during breakfast? Being able to jump directly in your own pool from your bedroom? Or having the fresh air of the sea breeze over your mobile home on the meadow? Latter is not just for spirituals, gypsy caravans on the island of Jutland are right in the middle of the health farm of Denker. Located on the Baltic Sea island, it offers spiritual treatments such as yoga, massages, jiu-jitsu and taekwondo.
The converted van accommodates 3 people and the nearby village of Bredstedt is easily accessible by bike. The various nature-themed experiences of the Wadden Sea are right on your doorstep and Sylt or the Halligen are within easy reach. The vintage gypsy caravan has extraordinary charm, as it stands in the middle of the meadow opposite a natural farm in an idyllic location and is of course, well equipped. Even a fireplace is available for colder days. The bathroom is built into the car and offers WC and a sink. The shower is 50 meters away in the natural vicinity. Anyone who wants to work in the garden is very welcome. In gratitude, vegetables, potatoes and herbs from local cultivation are going to be your reward.
Greater luxury – the North Sea tempts you with chalets right on the beach
Beach houses at the Roompot Beach Resort in Kamperland provide a little more comfort, but no less of a good feeling. The detached house can accommodate 6 people and offers the spectacular view of the white sand and the sea. The over 50 square meters and its 3 bedrooms ensure enough space for some private time.
You can expect appealing and high quality furnishings made from wood with bright colors and of course cosiness and Nordic charm. A bathroom with separate toilet, private terrace with high-quality lounge furniture, a kitchen with all the necessary utensils, free WiFi and SmartTV.
What sounds like a hotel is in reality located directly in the family-friendly Roompot Beach Resort, right in the middle of the beautiful North Sea area. Additional offers like barbecue, gourmet-arrangement or bicycles are available for booking. The resort itself has an indoor and outdoor pool, sauna, children’s play area, a restaurant and animations. Families can certainly relax with this glamping offer all around and do not have to forego any conveniences.
