Rheincamping Meerbusch, Zur Rheinfahre 21, D-40688 / Nordrhein-Westfalen. Email Website:-Here    ACSI Camping Card not taken in 2015.

This campsite was very pleasant indeed with grass pitches all along the Rhein River. Owners very pleasant and helpful indeed.

There was an Outside Bar which looked inviting.

Fresh Bread available daily.

WiFi Available.

TV via Satellite 80 cms Dish was good.

Toilets, Showers etc.,  These were all portable buildings as is the reception due to being so near the river it can flood in the winter.   All were modern and very clean.

There was a very nice Hotel on the approach road to the site which served nice meals.

Adjacent to the campsite was a car/passenger ferry to cross the river to visit Dusseldorf or Essen.  Cannot tell you what there is to see in the area as we were there two nights to meet up with some German friends who live in Essen.  When they came to visit it was in the 30's so warm and they arrived with their dog by foot on the Ferry.

HESSEN Area of Germany.                                                                                     The Rhine Valley.


Geisenheim am Rhein, Am Campingplatz 1. Email:-  Website:-Here   ACSI Camping Card Site No. 628 in 2013 Book.

Though I am telling you about this site we have only ever visited it tosee whatit is like and it does look very nice right on the banks of the Rhine.  It is situated a few miles just outside Rudesheim.  


Camping zur Bruckenshanke, Hattenheim, Eltville.      Website:-Here       Owners Famille Philipp.  This campsite was recommended to us by German friends who we have met their three times.  It is a pleasant little site right on the banks of the river with un-interrupted view of the river.  The family also own the Gastof situated just before the site.  This is where you have to stop and check in and you will be given a key, on deposit, for the gate to the campsite.  The Showers and Toilets are quite basic but very clean. Some hard standings along the river front, EHU and Water very close by.  No Train noise here but barges are on the go all day and a few at night.  These have never disturbed us during the night though.  I suggest you go to our various trips of 2006, 2007,2008 and 2010 when we have visited this campsite you will see more about the area.

St. Goar.

Camping Lorelyblick St Goar.    Website:- Here.

This site is situated opposite the Lorely is a very pleasant site which stretches along the bank of the Rhine,  there is a railway running along the back of the site but the noise from that and the river boats did not worry us but may some.

Toilets and showers were excellent as was the service in the reception.
