Simple or luxury camping in the Alps

Austria, camping in the alps

Although I have often been to Austria, I have never been to this area. So I am not writing this article from personal experience. We are real campers and camping in the Alps is something we like to do. We like to hike in the mountains and climb a lot in our vacations.

What is this region, so definitely something for us. Now we do not know what we are going to do this summer. So who knows where I might end up. I know there is so much difference in experiences in terms of camping.

Because where we are looking for a quiet campsite, with pool or water for the boys, others are looking for more luxury. That is why I am sharing these campsites with you today. Choose your campsite and enjoy this summer!
