    Heading down to southern Bavaria trundling around the German / Austria Alps (oompa, oompa) will probably stop in Cologne (day 1), then half way (thinking Bamberg/ Nuremberg) with a stop in Passau before heading west along the Alps For bulk of holiday. All recommendations for journey south/ south East appreciated please.

    We stayed in Cologne last year and many other places in Germany. View our map of last years trip and click on the places for info on where we stayed , how much it costs, and links to the blog posts. Hope these places are of help. The place in Cologne is right on the river and a short bike ride [or walk] into town.

    Camping Insel, Bamberg is very nice http://www.campinginsel.de/ Worth staying more than just one night. Bamberg does have a Stellplatz, but it's of the 'car park by a busy road' type. This may not bother you, but we were happy to pay for the campsite.

    Ah, thank you - that is one we had looked at, and wasn't sure. Perfect

    The stellplatz in Cologne, between the youth hostel and the river, is very good. If you are early enough, or have a splitter, you can have an EHU too.

    It is inside the Cologne green zone however so you will need an umweltplakette.

    we are fully "umweltzoned" up - lovely green one, we also have a bit of credit left on our Austrian Go box and about 6 days left on our Swiss toll so already to hit the road (and avoid the french tolls this summer!)

    How early do you suggest we get there, staying overnight about an hour from Calais, then on our way

    It's a place where people stay longer than a night so really there is no time better than another. It's quite big and, while busy when we were there, had places if you are willing to close up a bit and don' t want electricity. I' d not leave it too late in the evening in case you do have to go elsewhere.

    Edit to add: just checked this but you can reserve a place via their website. I thought I remembered a Reserved sign when we were there...

    The Cologne aire is called the Reisemobilhafen Köln, and it's featured on the CCI website's Germany section (Nordrhein - Westfalen) as No 3885.

    If you follow a satnav to it you'll think it's got it wrong, but the entrance is a rather unassuming gateway at the back of a car park, so trust the satnav. Easy cycle access to the centre, public transport nearby too. As Eeyore has said above, arrive in good time if you don't book in advance. We spent two nights there this spring - liked it.

    The Stellplatz in Cologne has a well sign-posted route in and out that is non umwelt zoned.

    In Passau there are a number of places to park up beside the river just of Regensburger Str (https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place...m2!3m1!1s0x4774587943a0a065:0x41d25a40937af30) . Ok for overnight unless the Danube is in flood.

    There are a couple of good Stellplatz in Fussen which is handy for a visit to Neuschwanstein Castle.

    We can also recommend Rothenberg Ob de Tauber for a visit, it's a classic medieval town and the setting for Chitty-Chitty Bang Bang. A couple of carparks are allocated for MH's just off the main city walls.
