Ever heard of glamping? The word combination comes from English and means “glamorous camping”. Glamping has been around since the 21st century, but now the travel industry has discovered it. There are many providers and cool hotspots.

Everyone knows the concept of camping and have tried it themselves for some time. But glamping is a bit different from normal camping. This sudden trend, which originated in the USA, has quickly spread to Germany. There are now already over 1.000 places where you can sleep glamping in the great outdoors.


The great thing about glamping is that once the booking is made, most of the work is already done. With most accommodations, certain things can be booked extra so that the traveller can take as little as possible with them.

Depending on the provider and website, you can order bed linen, extra furniture and other items. This makes the journey a lot easier and the lugging around is also simpler.

Many accommodations already have their own kitchen appliances and utensils, so you don’t need to take them with you. However, the travel documents should contain all the important information so that you can work out your packing list individually.

If you are not sure what to take with you, you can check the FAQ page or ask customer service.

There is a special place in the Markgräflerland where the accommodation is huge wine barrels – travellers can spend the night there. There are three different locations to choose from. But all are equally beautiful and perfect for an overnight stay.

The romantic sunrises and sunsets are unique. And before the evening knocks, deer and hares can be observed here. Couples can make themselves comfortable and spend an unforgettable night. The “rooms” are heated and bed linen and various towels are provided.

How often can you say you’ve spent the night in a wine barrel? That is certainly an experience in itself.

Plitvice Holiday Resort is located next to the Plitvice Lakes National Park and is therefore a great place to get to know mother nature. This glamping spot is known for showing the beauty of Croatia in all its glory.

Travellers have been coming to Grabovac since 1968. This holiday spot is located on the border of the country’s inland and mountainous areas.

Not in the mood for traditional glamping? Besides the 22 camping pitches, there are also 22 comfortable rooms, a luxurious flat, 10 mobile homes and other accommodation! Even tree houses can be rented. For the safety of the guests, there is also a modern sanitary facility, which is also suitable for the disabled.

If camping is not for you, but you still want to experience something and appreciate mother nature, glamping is a great alternative. Many hotspots offer the option of sleeping in rooms or flats. The combination of the accommodation and the more ‘off the beaten track’ locations makes the experience so exciting.
