Switzerland provides unlimited variety of camping sites and makes the experience of exploring Switzerland more affordable and enjoyable. You can choose an experience of camping in Switzerland depending on your plans. Are you planning to relax near the lake or explore the mountains? How much time are you planning to spend on the premises of the camping site and which facilities are you looking for? Or maybe you are a fan of wild camping in a tent and meeting the sunrise on a mountain peak?
The season and weather conditions play a role in deciding where to go for camping in Switzerland. The country is equipped with an excellent network of roads, but still driving on mountain roads with a caravan can be demanding. So depending on your driving experience you can decide whether you’d prefer a camping spot in the valley-at the lake or higher in the mountains. We also recommend to book a camping spot in advance because camping in Switzerland is quite popular!
Switzerland counts hundreds of camping sites and all of them have something special to offer: location, facilities, etc. But some are really unique experiences to explore such as wild camping or luxury camping!
There are numerous options to choose from when it comes to campsites in Switzerland. If you quickly google, you’ll find 200+ possibilities. Some of the most popular are on the lakes: camping Tamaro Resort on Lake Maggiore, camping Vitznau on Lake Lucerne or close to some of the iconic places to visit in Switzerland like Camping Jungfrau. Majority of campsites offer equipped motorhomes and bungalows, have sports facilities, etc. Our advice is to focus on which part of the country you’d like to go to, whether you prefer mountains or lakes, and last but not least – level of comfort you are looking for. And rest assured you’d find a perfect match in one of the campings in Switzerland!
