Firstly the positives, the site has a fantastic location on a hill overlooking the Rhine.

This review is for Burg Lahneck

Firstly the positives, the site has a fantastic location on a hill overlooking the Rhine. We spent evenings sitting outside watching the boats and trains travelling up and down the river. It's also a short 10 minute drive into Koblenz where you can pick up boat trips along the river, a cable car over the Rhine up to a fortress etc. There are many other nice towns nearby (Boppard well worth a visit), and we also took the train from nearby Kobern Gondorf to Luxembourg for a day, which was a lovely train ride along the Mosel river banks. Facilities are very clean, you do need 50 cent coins for the showers which you can get at reception. Electricity is charged at a rather steep 50 cents per kwh. It's not really a site for small children though. There is a very small, basic play park but as soon as we arrived we were told that the children were only to play there, not anywhere else on the site. They were even given a demonstration on how to use the seesaw quietly without making it squeak! There is a lovely big swimming pool next door, for which cheap discounted tickets could be bought at the site reception. That's great for families, but you definitely couldn't leave the kids to ride their bikes / play ball on the site. That does mean it's a lovely quiet site in the evenings, no noise at all. I'd say this site is best suited to older couples who want to get away from it all though, and wouldn't recommend it to young families unless you want to have to keep an eye on the kids at all times.

Great site with fantastic views. It was very quiet when we were there in early July.

This review is for Burg Lahneck

Great site with fantastic views. It was very quiet when we were there in early July. Owner was charming and very helpful. Facilities are kept scrupulously clean. Only slight downside is the need for 50c coins for showers. Enormous supermarket a short drive away. Lots of lovely places to visit nearby. Particularly recommend the cable car ride at Koblenz, Marksburg Castle at Braubach, and a boat trip on the Rhine.

This review is for Burg Lahneck

unfortunately we arrived too early , 25 mins too early ,The owner chastised us for being too early,and that as the camp was still closed we would have to follow him to a waiting place until 3.0 pm , when he would deal with us ! at around 2.50 pm 2 cars pulling caravans were guided to the upper plateau ( the one shown in the photo ) and shown to their pitches , strange ! as the campsite was still closed ! At 3.15 the Owner returned to us , and We looked forward to being given a pitch on the top plateau that would allow us the marvelous views of the Rhine ! Sadly not to be , We were told to follow the owner downwards , and eventually shown to a pitch in a meadow with the view of a tree! Not to be put off , we set up camp accepting that We would only be sleeping there for three nights , and that the area was so fantastic that we would be sightseeing during the day! Unfortunately the tree was where the mosquito's partied , and after suffering a few irritating bites , we decided to leave early ! British stiff upper lip and all ! We had planned on returning to the site on the return leg of our journey , but , due to the rude and utterly unhelpful owner , and the pitch we were allocated , I would never consider returning to this site ! Please be warned He is a very Rude individual !

This review is for Burg Lahneck

We first stayed at the site in September 2015 and were so impressed by the area that we were determined to return. The site owner, Herr Mishke, and his staff were as always, kind, friendly and very helpful. The site is ideally placed if you are feeling energetic, for cycling or walking. For sightseeing, Boppard (Rhine)or Cochem (Moselle) are within 30 - 60 mins drive. In addition, Koblenz (25 mins on the bus) has some terrific shops!! Alternatively, you can just relax and watch the bustle of the town of Lahnstein below and the ships going up and down the Rhine. In all, a very pleasureable experience.
