With the festive season in sight, many campsites are opening their doors to welcome their guests in a festive atmosphere. Our survey on “Christmas and New Year’s Eve offers” provides insights into special winter activities, festive Christmas and New Year’s Eve evenings and New Year’s Eve celebrations for campers.

An impressive 90.24% of campsites surveyed confirm that they are open over the festive period, highlighting the growing appeal of camping holidays in the low season.

In addition, 71.95% of campsites have decorated their facilities to emphasise the Christmas atmosphere and immerse their guests in the festive spirit.

Variety of Christmas and New Year’s Eve offers

The campsite operators who took part in our survey offer an impressive variety of Christmas and New Year’s Eve activities tailored to the needs and preferences of their guests. Some of the most popular offers and activities are:

Family fun and animal companions welcome

Some campsites are true family paradises. They spoil their guests with an extensive entertainment programme with crafts, games and fun activities for young and old. Special highlights include atmospheric lantern processions around the campfire and cosy evenings of stick bread. In addition, some of the campsites surveyed are particularly pet-friendly and allow their guests to bring their pets free of charge and offer New Year’s Eve evenings without fireworks. This means that many campsites can offer their guests peaceful holidays without the noise of fireworks.

Mulled wine parties

From convivial mulled wine parties to traditional Christmas markets with fragrant mulled wine and soothing children’s punch – to boost bookings, some campsites also offer free mulled wine to emphasise the winter atmosphere at the campsite.

Festive delights and culinary highlights

Our survey has shown that the catering on offer at campsites is very diverse. Some offer special Christmas and New Year’s Eve menus, including popular festive classics such as goose and fondue. From festive New Year’s Eve balls in rustic farmhouse parlours, such as at the Berau campsite on Lake Wolfgangsee, to lovingly decorated restaurants and exquisite menus, everything is on offer. The campsites surveyed do everything they can to create a festive atmosphere and thus offer all campers an unforgettable experience.

We would like to highlight the following campsites in particular. They have come up with something very special for the Christmas and New Year period:
