An average site, and nothing more, but further let down by being singled out to have an electric meter whilst other vans around us just hooked up.
User Review( votes)
Camping Hirzberg seemed like an ideal stop over, allowing a visit to Freiburg. Indeed this historic town centre is just under a mile from the site and so is within easy walking distance.
Upon arrival, reception was closed so we pitched ourselves and returned to the office at the designated hour. On the plus side we were given a lot of information about the site and the surrounding area, along with suggested walks from the site. The receptionist on duty spoke very good English. At this point, we were handed an electric meter to monitor our electricity usage, noting that four kilowatt hours are included, with anything over and above that, being charged at 55 euro cents per kwh. As a ball park figure, that is about four times the UK rate for energy prices, and noting that in the UK, there are strict laws regarding the reselling of electricity. The tariff quoted was also about two to three times the German energy prices that were quoted on utility providers’ website. However, I’m happy to pay for what is used but…
…reception closed at 18:00 and within minutes of that, numerous German owned vehicles arrived, pitched and hooked up – without the meter. Some left in the morning before reception opened. When we went to pay, I questioned why German vans did not have an electric meter, but the British one did. I do not know if it was coincidence that the other vans arrived soon after reception closed or…
There were ten or so pitches at street level, with the remainder being on an upper level.
On site facilities at Camping Hirzberg
- Hardstand or grass pitches – note the hardstand is a form of sand and causes a lot of mess
- Electric hook up (!)
- Pot wash
- Chemical disposal point
- Reading room
- Showers/toilets – not overly warm inside and neither was the water
- WiFi (four euro for 24 hours)
In all, the location is not bad, the facilities average or slightly less, but the metering for some, but not all vans, will ensure we do not return. Should you require further information though, the website is here.
