    Anyone else likely to be going that way? Be great to meet up.
    Are there any sat nav. lists of free camping does anyone know?
    Hope to see you!

    Hi,
    Resources...download on this site's front page will get you started. There are several satnav files on there.
    We will be back from the Moselle/Rhine trip by the end of September but when we get back I'll post up our experiences, which may be helpful to you.
    Have a great trip:thumb:

    Theres a small town on the Rhine called Bacharack!
    Its a must see!
    Like something out of Hansel and Gretal.
    Amazingly beautifull place and a great little shopping street!

    We go to Germany regularly (nearly every year) and find the best publication for free camps (stelplatz) is the Ju-Zi Liste - It is in German but fairly easy to understand - costs about 6 euros and lists over 3 thousand staying places. There are also the Pro mobil books (these have pictures maps and symbols for camp ares for motorhomes) - rather more expensive. And the Reisemobile book again has maps and symbols.

    The Rhine and the Mosel valleys have an abundance of stelplatze - Just folllow the motor home sign.

    By October you will have missed most of the wine festivals (there are some in the Ar valley) which is a pity as they are usually a great attraction - our favourite is at Berncastle Kues ( Mosel) at the beginning of September (great music and the parade on Sunday afternoon is a sight to see) Also the Rhine in flames weekends (2nd w/e @ Oberwesel and 3rd w/e @ Sankt Goar).

    If you fancy travelling a bit further afield try the Saxon switzerland (saxische schweiz) which is an area south of Dresden towards the Cz boarder. (knockout) - take a look at the restored Dresden whilst there.

    We are hoping to set off for Germany next week and will be at the Dusseldorf show and then wherever our wheels take us - but we may take in a wine fest or 2.

    Enjoy the trip! - I'm sure you will!
