    Great site for culture

Excellent traditional-style facilities set next to a mountain river

With a range of very good facilities for a site of this size, plus the traditional buildings hung with flowers, this is a great base for exploring the Black Forest and for taking a day trip to Switzerland. Staufen and its castle are very pretty, as are the vineyards around this area, while picturesque Freiburg is nearby too – if you brave the spiral steps up into the tower of its beautiful minster, the effort is well rewarded. Guests receive a KONUS card on arrival which entitles you to free transport on most local train and bus services so you can fully explore the Black Forest - you can travel as far north as Karlsruhe and as far south as Basel.

Owned and run by the Wiesler family, English spoken.

Location

Set in a wooded valley on the edge of the Black Forest. Staufen centre 10 minute walk, Freiburg 13 miles, Switzerland 33 miles, Strasbourg 65 miles.

The site is dated I had spoke to c @c c as I had read negative reviews no one got back to me, so I booked the site, there are a lot of old vans on site which have been their a long time. This site is not suitable for children, the toilets,showers were very clean and the staff were very nice.

This review is for Belchenblick

Stayed at this picturesque site in August with my partner and our children and found the staff very friendly, the facilities clean and the free go-carts for kids to use a nice touch. The other reviewers are right, it's a great stepping off point to explore nearby cities, such as Frieburg and Basel, and the Black Forest, and the free train travel is an added boon. However, we were disappointed by the seemingly unkempt and, consequently, rather unenticing kids play area. Moreover, as one of very few users camping in a tent only a couple of (smallish) pitches from the site's boundary, my partner and I found the noise from the (fast, busy) road and electric trains extremely bothersome. It was difficult for us or the children to sleep and, even when we did manage to with earplugs, the noise woke us around 6pm without fail. Had imagined something more bucolic and this certainly wasn't that.

This review is for Belchenblick

We arrived 1430 and had to wait until reception re-opened about 3. Welcome was business like but adequate. We wetre shown to a numbered pitch in area nearest to reception and toilets. Quite a few British Units. Toilets were fine with showers having combined en suite Wc Was basin etc. All very clean. Shop very basic and not really well stocked. Some areas of campsite bit run down. Travel Pass ideal Staufen nearest station with trains to Frieberg where you change. Rail line runs close to site but very quiet electric trains. Town and station 10 mins walk. Small super market in town Larger ones in industrial estate just outside. Very hot during our stay. Prices in Germany all very standardised and cheaper than France. Electricity metered cost us approx 9 Euros. Would return

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.
