ADAC camping guide Germany and Northern Europe 2022

Camping is becoming more and more luxurious: ADAC Camping awards 5 stars to 158 campsites in Europe

  • 28 new ADAC super places in Europe, 21% growth in the top group
  • Italy remains number 1 in the top group, Croatia is recording the strongest growth
  • Fehmarn Island brings Schleswig-Holstein to the top in Germany

The ADAC has published a new campsite guide for 2022 and has kindly sent us this information. I didn't think the information was bad at all, as I often stayed at campsites on my Harley-Davidson tours. It is definitely a good guide when planning tours.

The advantages of a campsite are obvious: you will find sanitary facilities, a kiosk and, with a bit of luck, often a top location. You are simply closer to nature and this way of traveling is a lot cheaper than staying permanently in hotels.

In Scandinavia there are also huts in the program, which is particularly recommended in bad weather. Unfortunately, wild camping is prohibited in most European countries, which makes the campsite guide interesting again for planning tours. It's no secret that some people travel the world with children and children. Drive to the beautiful places with the camper and the Harley on the trailer and, once there, explore the area in a relaxed manner on the Harley.

Everyone as they please, that's the freedom we all always talk about!

Berlin, December 7th, 2021 - This year the ADAC once again sent its inspectors to campsites across Europe to check their quality. The most important result: With 28 new ADAC super pitches (+21%), the top group of European luxury camping has expanded significantly.

This means that the number of campsites in Europe rated with 5 stars grows to a total of 158. Uwe Frers, Managing Director of ADAC Camping: “28 new ADAC super pitches show where camping is headed: higher quality for increasingly demanding campers.” There is also a strong increase in 4 and 4.5 star places. 103 campsites have made it into this segment (1373 campsites) and are pleased to have been recognized as an ADAC tip.

ADAC classification: This is how it is evaluated

The ADAC classification shows the level of offerings of a campsite. The highest classification level is 5 stars. The classification is calculated from the individual results of an inspection in the areas of sanitary equipment, site area, supplies, leisure activities and bathing opportunities.

To do this, ADAC inspectors travel all over Europe to get an on-site impression of the respective campsite. To ensure that the evaluation is fair and transparent, it follows fixed criteria that are applied consistently throughout Europe.

Approximately 250 data points are collected during an inspection. If a campsite manages to achieve an above-average rating and is classified with 5 stars, it receives the title ADAC Superplatz.
