    We are thinking of going to Germany, we only have 2 weeks in the summer, so cannot go far, do like nice scenery and not flat, could stay on sites not bothered if they have pools or entertainment ( have a 14 year old girl ) can anyone suggest an area, which is not to far, would like the mountains, but i think that is to far :thumb:

    Hi Mowbotman

    We have spent some time in Germany either as stop over or for a week or so. I have a 15 year old daughter so you have my pity :ROFLMAO:

    Try round about the Freilburg area we stayed there for a week about 3 or 4 years ago just parked up on a site and used public transport and bike to get around, they have a good amusement park at Rust near by if your Daughter is into that.

    Loads of lovely country side and just a really nice place, on the way down and back we went via Belgium, Luxembourg and France my Daughter love the fact she visited so many countries.

    We have also stopped at Stuggart and Ulm while travelling to Lake Garda and back. If you like cars then a day out to the Mercedes museum is well worth it even Sophie said it was a great day. Ulm is a bit further down but a lovely area we only spent a day and night there but will go back as it was a lovely little city.

    We are heading to Slovina next summer to visit friends so will get to see more of Germany in the process.

    If you go on to the tourist info site for Germany they will send you loads of free brooches and info we have done this.

    Second the Hartz Mountains and would add the Eiffel which is a little nearer, less visited and close to Luxembourg, the Rhine, and the German Mosel Valley too.

    Black Forest - were there a few years ago (stayed at a site near Sulzburg, about 20 mls S of Freiburg). It's about 450 miles from Calais. Some lovely walking to be had as well as super scenery.

    If it's not to far off track a visit to the Motorhome Salon at Dusseldorf is a memorable experience.
    We went this year and was amazed at the size of the campsite and show.
    We have just managed to book our return ferry from Hull to Zeebrugge for £280. That is for a 7.2 mtr van plus a motorcycle trailer and an outside cabin. The C&CC are offering very good discounts at the moment, it may be of interest to you.
