    We are shortly to leave Holland headed for Copenhagen
    Does anyone have any suggested routes or favourite sites to stay at along the way?
    Much appreciated

    We are heading that way too next week and a friend has recommended Lubeck in northern Germany as a sweet little half timbered town and good stop off point. Have to looked up stellplatz etc yet though. Have fun

    Thanks
    Yes we have arranged for our daughter to fly out to meet us there and I visited Copenhagen last year - it's lovely although pricey (restaurants,)
    We are looking for small out of the way places to explore rather than big cities although we may have a look at Hamburg. I'll look up Lubeck too thanks
    Any other suggestions? We'll be driving from the west into south Denmark, can anyone recommend the north?

    We are doing northern germany in the summer. We found a lovely campsite just outside Hamburg, i booked it via pitchup. We are also staying in schwerin (spelling?) to visit the castle. We prefer to be outside of somewhere and bus in to visit.

    Lubeck is certainly worth a visit and its seaside neighbour Travemunde is pleasant and popular with day trippers and tourists. Slightly further north, Kiel Week is coming up soon (18-26 June) and that would be an experience to visit - it's definitely not just about the sailing. Parking space will probably be at a premium though!

    I spent a few days right up in the northern tip of Denmark near scargen. .. stopped on a privately run site by the name of tannisby camping or something like that... I'm not home so it's from memory but it is a lovely part of the country... scargen is a lovely little town and the yachts that use the harbour were luxurious. ..
    Worth a visit if you are right up in northern Denmark. .
    Andy..

    In Denmark, Odense on the the island of Funen (Fyn) is a lovely place. The Danish call it the holiday isle.
    Enjoy.

    A really nice town in Denmark is Ribe known for it’s restored old buildings and for being one of Denmarks oldest towns dating from 869. An aire is on the outskirts of town. We also went to Legoland [its not just for kids] really enjoyed the place. For places we stayed and visited in northern Germany see our map and click on the kangaroos for details and blog entries of each place. Hope this is of some use.

    Miniature Wonderland in Hamburg is on our bucket list!!!!!! I'd be interested in the campsite details :) we'll probably go in October 2017 as son might be there then.

    Here is the link to pitchup, I found the price to be the same much easier to book via pitchup as the actual site appears to be only in German.

    We visited the Miniature Wonderland last year and stayed on the harbour in a carpark which allows overnight stays. From there you can walk to the centre of Hamburg and to the Miniature Wonderland. Pricey at 14 euros but saves having to catch the bus from the campsite to the city. Interesting walk along the harbour.

    Avoid the A7 around Hamburg due to major roadworks.
    We are now in Denmark and this is the view from our pitch

    If the Weather is good the islands of Rugen and Usedom are well worth visiting, plenty of Stellaplatz , and if you are shy you may find the odd "Textile Beach", (allowed to keep your swimming trunks on):)
    Peenemunde on Usedom where they assembled V2 rockets well worth a visit.

    I read your blog about your visit! Think we would be there all day - if not more than one day! I think we would need electric though :( especially in October, which is why I asked about the site.

    I guess it depends on your tastes - if you like marzipan, then Lubeck is certainly your town! Otherwise, you might want to look at smaller towns, such as Schwerin, on it's own lake, or Wismar, on the coast. Both really pretty towns, full of lovely folk.

    I believe that wild camping is not allowed in Germany, but I may be mistaken.

    Numbers 964 & 965 both do overnight camping/ night stops, a cheap rate if you arrive after 20 00 hours and leave before 10 00 hours.
