Now I like this very much… This photo comes courtesy of our Nick Harding, who toured to Austria over the summer. It was taken on the Burgstaller campsite, and shows a pitch that revolves to literally follow the sun – no matter what time of day, you’re guaranteed to be able to make the most of the weather.

Austria site

Now I like this very much… This photo comes courtesy of our Nick Harding, who toured to Austria over the summer. It was taken on the Burgstaller campsite, and shows a pitch that revolves to literally follow the sun – no matter what time of day, you’re guaranteed to be able to make the most of the weather.

 

It’s a whopping great site with 580 pitches, each with its own electric, water, TV and internet connection. There’s a ‘motorhome service station’, car wash, two restaurants, and there are even televisions in the five-star washrooms. And it’s not exactly pricey to stay on: arrive after 6pm and leave the following morning before 9am at any point during the season and it’ll only cost you €14.90 (which converts to £12.92 as I type this) for a motorhome with two adults. You can find out more about the campsite by visiting www.burgstaller.co.at or by calling 0043 4246 7774. I’m certainly planning a trip there the next time I go to Austria…
