ADAC classification: How we rate

The ADAC classification shows the level of a campsite’s facilities. The highest
classification level is 5 stars. The classification is calculated from the individual results of an inspection in the areas of sanitary facilities, campsite grounds, catering, leisure facilities and bathing opportunities. ADAC inspectors travel throughout Europe to gain an impression of each campsite on site. To ensure that the assessment is fair and transparent, it follows fixed criteria that are standardised throughout Europe. Around 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 ADAC Superplatz award.
