Tunnel all booked for April and Route completed which can always change en route is necessary.
This Year we will be spending 3 weeks on the Ossiachersee again but at a new campsite to us Kalkgruber just a few yards away from Jodl now been closed for over a Year.
We will be Meeting up with Friends along the way who live in Germany, Holland and the UK. No European Tour would be complete if it did not start and finish at Prumtal Camping at Oberweis.
This year going down will be our 22nd Visit to Prumtal. Things have changed here since our first visit in 2006. Another generation of the Kohler Family are now in charge though Herr Kohler still helps. The Campsite just gets better and better each year. In 2014 the new super toilet block was opened and the new fully serviced pitches together with free WiFi all over the campsite.
This year a new Reception has opened I cannot wait to see it.
Prumtal Camping***** is situated at Oberweis near to Bitburg link here takes ACSI Camping Card out of season. Excellent Facilities and Restaurant. We had an early night after a long journey from 10,30pm on the 17th. Ate in the Kohler Restaurant which was as good as usual.
First day visit to Bernkastel Kues for Lunch at our favourite restaurant the Moselbluemchen a nice ride along the Mosel back to Rewe in Bitburg to stock up with food etc., Some Photo's below of the Bernkastel and the Mosel.
We have been here many times before and always enjoy watching the Barges and Hotel Boats going up and down this mighty river. Our pitch is situated near the fence along the footpath/cycle path just a few metres from the river. After 4 generations of the Erich Philip Family having the Restaurant here 3 weeks ago their lease was not renewed. Luckily the field where the campsite is situated is owned by the family and they are concentrating more on the Camping. They are in the process of building an outdoor restaurant in the right hand corner of the site with a gate through to the the river footpath.
At the moment the campsite looks a bit unkept as the grass has not been cut but this will be improved once the Cafe Area is complete.
The Toilet facilities are good but not heated. Review of this site is in the section of this website named Campsite Reviews Germany where more photos are available to be seen.
We visited this Campsite to meet up with a young Polish friend and his family who live near to Ingolstadt. Website is www.azur-camping.de The Campsite takes ACSI Camping Card and also ADAC Camping Card both €19. Our problem was that due to hold ups due to roadworks on the A3 and A7 Autobahn we did not arrive till 5.30 pm and it was pouring with rain and cold. We were able to order and pay for bread rolls when signing in and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The Reception closes at 7 pm and barrier closes at 10 pm so you have to leave car behind the barrier on car park if late out. The facilities were excellent heated, very modern and spotlessly clean as typical to German sites.
On the approach to the campsite not too far from the A7 Autobahn, but cannot be heard, the Auwaldsee Restaurant stands and the food is excellent.
Next day we ventured into Ingolstadt, but it had rained all night and was still raining so we parked under the City Theatre opposite the River Danube and walked into the Old Town going to the Galeria Kaufhof for a look around and have a light lunch before making our way back to the caravan too wet to do much else. Of course Ingolstadt is the home of Audi Motors. At 7 pm we were due to drive to our friends home in a nearby village for supper and had a most enjoyable time. We arrived back at the Caravan just before 10 am it was still raining and did all night. Still raining in the morning as we set off for Austria snowing around Munich. Road works on the 99 Munich ring road but A8 not bad at all.
When we arrived it was not raining but dull and first night it rained turning to snow as photo's below. Weather did improve over the first days so a few pics below.
