|Campingplatz Jena unter dem Jenzig|
The site was muddy from lots of rain and only had limited hard-standing. The facilities were dated but good standard. Washing up was indoors and had hot water. Bread was available to order. There is a lake near the site. Quiet.
Camping Hirtenteich, Lauterburg, near Essingen
A lovely and peaceful site with fantastic sanitary facilities which were clean and warm. The pitches are grassy and mostly level. The restaurant next to the site is good and relaxed and served marvellous kasespatzle for €6.50. Site was €16 a night on ACSI and hook up was 16 amps.
Kur Camping Fuchs, Egglfing, Bad Fussing
Hard standing pitches. Facilities clean and with excellent showers. The pitches are in rows and feels quite crowded. The roads are tarmac and this is a well appointed site with free wifi.
Campingpark Greifensteine, Geyer
The touring field is a grassy, sloped field with no marked pitches and on a large site with many permanent vans. Excellent selection of bread is available in the shop. Showers are 50c. The sanitary facilities by reception are acceptable but the new block further away were much better facilities. Good walking and cycling routes from the site.
Campingplatz Jena unter dem Jenzig, Jena
A small site approximately 2km (marked cycle route there) from the central square in Jena. The site is grassy and has some hard standing pitches. The showers are excellent with plenty of room and include a sink. The toilet cubicles are also room and have a sink. Bread is available to order. There is a small snack bar and the owner speaks excellent English. A friendly site that is peaceful despite being on the edge of this lively and attractive city. Plenty of cycling from the site and walking up the Jenzig. €14 a night on ACSI made it excellent value.
Camping Lahnaue, Marburg
The site is strung along the river with the dual carriageway and the railway line the other side of the wall. That said, the site has a pleasant enough feel and it is worth spending a couple of nights to see the marvel that is Marburg; the best pitches back on to the river and all are marked. The facilities needed a key to access and were just OK, although clean. Bread was available to order and wifi is free. The site is 15 minutes walk from the town and 10 minutes from the south Marburg railway station. Cycle routes go in all directions from the site and there is a large pool complex and mini golf next to the site. At €20 a night it wasn't the best value for money.
Naturcamping Kyllburg, Kyllburg
This site is also strung a long a river but next to a small, pretty town set on the hillsides of the river. The shower and washing facilities are good but the washing up facilities were dirty, too low and smelly, although they did have hot water. The pitches are crowded and small and used mostly by caravans from the Netherlands.
