Tips

  • A walk in the peat bog is particularly interesting for bird lovers.

  • Enjoy sunny days on the Krautsand island in the Elbe. Otherwise, the Wingster Forest is always worth a visit.

  • Anyone who is here by car should definitely make a trip to the historic old town of Stade with its countless bars and pubs.

  • In Himmelpforten in the mill tower you can enjoy the view while eating. Please check the opening hours beforehand.

Tell us about your experience
Nice small campsite on a small farm. We stayed only for the night on our way to France, but had a good experience. Loved the outdoor shower!! There is even a small kitchen with everything you need, and electricity for charging your devices. There was really a lot of mosquitos in the tent area, but that was the only downside.

How was the contact with the host?
Host greeted us and showed us everything about the place when we arrived. Very nice guy.

Tips for new guests?
If you drive electric car like us, there is a fast charger at Penny Himmelpforten only 11 km away. We took the Gluckstadt-Wischhafen ferry instead of driving through Hamburg, can recommend it if you like cozy detours.

Great and quiet place at an authentic farm. You can choose a spot yourself and there is a unit on the site with toilet, cooking and washing up facilities! You don't need more!

How was the contact with the host?
Good!

Tips for new guests?
Definitely recommended as a stopover towards Scandinavia. From here you can easily take the boat to Gluckstad so that you avoid Hamburg.
