Stuttgart, 16.01.2023 – The winners of this year’s ADAC Camping Awards have been announced. On the occasion of the ADAC Camping Gala, the winners of Europe’s most important camping award were chosen on Friday evening in Friedrichsbau Varieté Theater, Stuttgart. Uwe Frers, Managing Director of ADAC Camping GmbH ( “The ADAC Camping Awards are as important to the camping industry as the Oscars are to the film industry. We honor the trendsetters of the industry with this award.” Among hundreds of suggestions from the camping industry and an international commission of 40 camping experts, the award winners were selected in four thematic categories: Sustainability and Environmental Awareness, Innovation and Progress, Demographic Change and Accessibility, and ADAC Camping Booking. In addition, another personality of the European camping industry, Siegfried Heinze Latzke, who died in December 2022, was posthumously inducted into the Hall of Fame.


Well-deserved: Siegfried Heinze Latzke in the Hall of Fame 

The highlight of the award ceremony was the induction of Siegfried Heinze Latzke, who passed away in December, into the Hall of Fame. In his eulogy, Uwe Frers paid tribute to Heinze’s lifetime achievements and his contributions to the development of European camping tourism. “With the death of Siegfried Heinze, the European camping community has lost forever a great promoter and friend of camping. He created a network with the most important camping organizations and associations in Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Great Britain, Italy, Switzerland, Scandinavia and Spain. It is fair to say that Siegfried Heinze Latzke’s activities first put Spain, and later Portugal, on the European camping map.”
