Pure nature, lake view & Glamping Camping in Tirol

Last updated on 20.04.2023

Camping holidays are enjoying ever-increasing popularity and Tirol offers a selection of over 85 options. The choice for campers ranges from tranquil spots in the midst of nature, to a luxurious tree house. Incidentally, wild camping is not permitted in the heart of the Alps, but that is no cause for sadness: Tirolean campsites offer everything you could possibly wish for and more.

Small and sophisticated

Mountain Camp Pitztal is a good choice for those seeking peace and quiet whilst enjoying nature. This small and natural campsite in Jerzens offers pitches for just 38 motorhomes and caravans on an idyllic site, while tents can be pitched on the meadow around the waterfall. Moreover, the Alpine Bungalow is available for hire, which can comfortably accommodate one to five persons. The Mountain Camp’s highlight is a pond with jetty and sunbathing lawn, where you can swim and fish! The campsite is also an ideal starting point for mountain enthusiasts to embark on hikes, summit tours and excursions by mountain bike.

The family friendly Lechtal Camping Vorderhornbach is located in the middle of Lechtal Nature Park. The 40 pitches are nestled amidst the impressive mountain panorama of the nature park region. In addition to pitches and tent sites, guests can also enjoy comfortable cabins and rustic caravans. On-site facilities include the (public) nature adventure pool and a bistro for days when you don’t feel like cooking. The Lechtal cycle path and Lech hiking trail can be wonderfully discovered from here!

These are fully equipped with a kitchen, rain shower and panoramic terrace with barbecue grill. The Family & Panorama Wood Lodges provide an alternative and equally luxurious option: these comfortable wooden tree houses can be booked all year round and offer a close-to-nature holiday experience thanks to their huge panoramic window facade.

Those who like to sleep outside but still hanker after the comfort of a hotel room will find the perfect compromise in the glamping tents at Gerhardhof in Wildermieming.
