Excellent traditional-style facilities set next to a mountain river
With a range of excellent facilities for a site of this size, plus the traditional buildings hung with flowers, this is a great base for visiting the Black Forest and for making day trips to Switzerland. Staufen and its castle are very pretty, but picturesque Freiburg is nearby too – if you brave the spiral steps up into the tower of its beautiful minster, the effort is well rewarded.
Owned and run by the Wiesler family, English spoken.
Set in a wooded valley on the edge of the Black Forest. Reiburg 13 miles, Switzerland 33 miles, Strasbourg 65 miles.
Flat and compact pitches; open and part-shaded; with or without electricity (payable on site), some with drainage and water.

The site was ok just a stop off on way to Italy it rained most of the time we were there so pitch was soggy. The toilets and showers were ok
We had a drink in the on site bar this was not good as the smell of cat wee was very obvious we only had one drink. The play area for kids was worn out and need some work on it.

As a family with 2 small children we found this site to be excellent for us. The staff were pleasant and helpful. The facilities were very good with good sized shower rooms (2 of which are big enough to for the 4 of us to get in at the same time). There's a gym, indoor pool, bar, half decent shop. The site is quiet despite having a small river to one side and a rail track and road to the opposite ( trains are electric with no rail clatter). It is a short walk to the local town 15mins with a 2&4 year old in tow.
All the local shops and restaurants were accommodating and helpful despite our feeble but determined efforts to string the German language together, they seem to appreciate that we made the effort. Almost everyone speaks some English.
The site is well situated for getting out and about, the scenery and roads within a 75 mile radius are breathtaking,there is plenty to do if you want or just relax. As a family we would highly recommend this site for short stop overs ( this seemed quite popular for people doing larger trips) or as we did to spend the bulk of our holiday. Many thanks to the Wiesler family and employees.

Firstly we were nervous stopping here after reading the reviews.
The trains run until about 11 pm and aren't noisy, you get a free travel pass ( Konus card) and the station is a 10 minute walk and you can travel through the region and even to Basel Switzerland free.
Everyone has the meter read and pays for electricity and it's not the British and there are no British only pitches. It cost �7 for 4 nights, very hot fan on 24 hrs.
The site is friendly and why do people expect signs in English when in germany? I can't remember visiting a British site where the owners spoke German or had info in various languages.
The site is clean and has a small indoor pool, swimming cap required. My wife and I used it several times and where the only ones there.
Tennis courts opposite are charged at �10 per hour and the massive pool outside which is a couple of mins walk by the river is free and lovely.
We went on the train to Freiburg and then on to lake titisee which was breathtaking.
What a gem of a site in the Black Forest region which is great for cycling walking or relaxation.
I recommend the kornhaus in stauffen for an evening meal and the turkey and mushroom salad.
The town is picturesque and everywhere you turn it's like a postcard.
I wish we would have booked some more time here but will be returning next year.

If you have no German and are unfamiliar with German culture I can understand the negative review. The site is not run by 3 brothers. There is a son in law and the rest are employees. They are all very helpful but you must make an effort to get to know them. The trains are not 4 an hour! And if you want to catch one it's free as is the great outdoor swimming pool and parking in the town. All German sites have small pitches and there is ample parking in high season out side the site. Gates shut from 1230 to 1500 great for a siesta. If your going our park out side before 1230. I love this site have been going every year for the last 20 years.
