I'm looking for a really quiet campsite for a family holiday somewhere along the German Baltic coast.
A place where you're not being disturbed by the large group of teenagers three meters away, playing loud music, drinking, and having loud discussions until well into the night about the best way to cheat the Hartz 4 system. (Last year's holiday on Usedom) A place where the site owners do not feel compelled to offer bad German live rock music as free entertainment, at a volume where there is no escape anywhere on site.
This has been my unfortunate experience of German camping so far. Has anyone been to a site where it is made clear in the publicity that loud groups will not be tolerated?
Something like this:http://www.kanubasis-blankenfoerde.de/Domainz...
Wir wollen nicht ...
der typische Campingplatz sein, auf dem Sie nachts wegen des Gegröles und Disco-/Polonaisenfiebers wieder nach Hause wünschen;
* dass Sie vor Transistorradiogeplärre das Zirpen der Grillen nicht mehr hören;
* dass Sie nach Ihrem Aufenthalt das Gefühl haben, Ihre Zeit oder Ihr Geld bei uns verplempert zu haben.
This sounds great, but the kids would like something near a beach, so they can spend their time building sandcastles.
Fehmarn sounds nice (and sunny), does anyone have good memories of a quiet camping holiday there?
And just to give this a sort of Land und Leute let's talk about cultural differences general relevance, why is camping in Germany seen as such a group sitting-around-and-drinking activity? My experience of camping in Britain was that it was much more civilized (if more rainy, which could possibly answer the question). Is it really just a weather difference? I remember campsites in California also being blissfully quiet.
