Camping holidays in their own country have been very popular with many, and not just since Corona. In a new series, FOCUS Online presents the most beautiful campsites in every federal state: Brandenburg today.
1. Family park Senftenberger See, Großkoschen
It is hard to believe that the beautiful Senftenberger See in the Lusatian Lakeland is not a natural lake at all, but a flooded lignite mining that took almost five years to fill – with 1300 hectares, it is even one of the largest artificial lakes in the republic.
The campsite of the same name, which is located directly on the water, is a paradise for children, because there is everything that is fun for the little ones: a cinema, a playroom for bad weather and a playground with a water slide, trampolines, mini golf and a bowling alley – and of course a 600 meter long sandy beach with a large sunbathing area. There is also a nudist area for die-hard nudists.
The campsite offers 170 pitches between 80 and 100 square meters, equipped with electricity, sewage and fresh water connections. The cozy camping restaurant with beer garden offers home-style cuisine and invites you to a barbecue evening once a week.
2. Eurocamp Spreewaldtour, Groß Leuthen
The Spreewald in Brandenburg is one of the most beautiful natural and cultural landscapes in Germany. A boat trip through the extensive water network past the picturesque villages of this region should be on every bucket list for vacationers in Germany.
A good starting point to explore this region is the Eurocamp Spreewaldtor: It borders directly on the Spreewald biosphere reserve. The 14-hectare area with 210 stands is located on Lake Leuthen – it is only a few minutes’ walk to the bathing area with a sandy beach, jetty and a water playground. If you don’t have your own camping equipment, you can stay in beautiful safari tents.
The center of the campsite is designed like a village square – with colorful thatched roof houses. There is also the outdoor pool and a new wellness area with sauna, steam bath and adventure shower. In addition: a mini market, a restaurant, a soccer field, a playground and shuttle buses to the surrounding sights such as Lübben, Burg and Lübbenau.
3. Riegelspitze Blossom Camping, Werder / Havel
Just ten kilometers southwest of Potsdam on a natural peninsula is the four-star flower camp Riegelspitze. The location on a headland on the east bank of the Glindower See is something special, because the square is surrounded by water on two sides and connected to other lakes by a canal.
In addition to the 130 parceled out parking spaces with electricity, sewage and fresh water connections, this well-maintained facility also offers various co-accommodations: from simple equipped overnight barrels, comfortably furnished lodges and Finnish kottas to a circus wagon and a boat house right on the water.
The place is ideal for water sports enthusiasts: there is a boat rental as well as berths for those who bring their own boat. There is also a 50 meter long sandy beach with sunbathing lawns, children’s playground and beach volleyball as well as a restaurant with beer garden.
4. Adventure camp Lausitz, outskirts
The Lausitz Adventure Camp is located in a quiet, green area by a small stream – around 35 minutes by car north of Dresden. The family-run and quiet complex currently offers 87 parking spaces with electricity, sewage and fresh water connections as well as a tent meadow with plenty of shady spots.
In addition to a bread roll service for breakfast, a mini market, a barbecue area, and bike and games rental, children can look forward to a rock-shaped playground including a trampoline and table tennis table. There is also a barbecue area with tables and benches for family picnics right next door.
Leisure tips: Be sure to explore the rural region by bike – the Tour Brandenburg cycle path leads right past – as well as go on excursions to the Königsbrucker Heide and the Spreewald, which can be reached in around 40 minutes by car.
5. Spreewald-Natur-Camping am Schlosspark, Lübbenau
This well-kept four-star campsite in the town of Lübbenau, which is also known as the gateway to the Spreewald, is located directly on the main river of the Spree. Perfect for everyone who wants to explore this region on water hikes: Here vacationers start directly by boat into the quaint labyrinth of 150 waterways. The operator rents kayaks and canoes. If you don’t want to paddle yourself, you can also take part in organized trips on a typical table boat.
The facility is located on a small peninsula on the castle grounds and offers 140 mostly parceled places; the two sanitary buildings are ultra-modern and chic. It is only a five-minute walk to the center of Lübbenau and a ten-minute walk to the pretty Spreewald village of Lehde.
Tip: Children can let off steam in the very beautiful wooden playground with swings, walkways and huts; In addition, the city of Lübbenau opened a large adventure playground directly behind the town hall in 2019.
