Campingplatz am Rhein, Rudesheim

Campingplatz am Rhein, Rudesheim is our favourite site in Germany and we have stayed there on many occasions. We received a warm welcome from the owner, Oliver, who speaks perfect English, and his family.  Fortunately our favourite pitch was free and we were able to set up on it. Oliver escorts you to your pitch and connects up the electricity for you.

Although the pitch does not have a Rhine view, it is well placed for all the facilities and has great shade from the trees, something we were very grateful for as the temperatures were up to 37C whilst we were there.

The Site has been up-graded since we were there, with the addition of a brilliant new toilet block

and a complete rebuild of the mens side of the original toilet block, another brilliant job. The refurbished block can be seen in the centre of the photo.


The Site itself is very well maintained and has many features which give it character.

In the centre the 'Kiosk' and restaurant, on the right the owners house The eating area with view over the Rhine Our favourite snack! Strammer Max
The courtyard leading to the Rhine The site from the Rhine and the path along it
leading directly to Rudesheim, past the overnight moored cruise ships. About a 10 min stroll.
Next to the Campsite is an open air pool and sports complex which many from the site take advantage of. About 300 metres away is a very comprehensive shopping area with Aldi,  Lidl and a couple of other supermarkets as well as a McDonalds, for the children of course! Also a petrol station. Rudesheim itself is a bit of an upmarket tourist resort which does very well from the visiting cruise ships. There is plenty to see and do and many eating and drinking establishments. The local Rhine cruise ships can be boarded from a jetty on the way into the town. Although there is plenty to do around the local area, the site itself is very quiet and peaceful and many campers can be found just sitting out and relaxing, many with a book and a glass of the local wine.
