Tip 2: Tree Tents on Schluchsee Lake 

Slung between two large spruce trees, these extraordinary “flying tents” are two metres off the ground! They overlook Schluchsee lake and, on warm summer nights, the “roof” can be removed, so you can sleep under the stars. The tents are suitable for two people, such as a couple or parent and child. Showers and toilets are on a nearby campsite. Breakfast is an option, which can be ordered in advance. Bookable from May to October.

Tip 7: Sleep in the Open Air in the Black Forest

Go off-trail to an away-from-it-all spot. Build your own campfire. Spend the night in the open air. Unspoiled nature is waiting at 18 special trekking camps in the Black Forest.

Tip 9: Spend the Night in the US, Spain or Italy at Europa-Park

In Rust, the Europa-Park theme park not only invites you to explore the 15 European-themed areas by day, but also to stay on site in one of their themed hotels. Try the Bell Rock for an adventure in New England, USA; the Colosseo for a trip to bella Italia; the Spanish-style Castillo Alcazar to sample life in the days of knights and ladies. All the hotels have play areas for children. Extra-special for younger guests is a surprise appearance by Ed Euromaus and his friends at breakfast. Bonus: hotel guests have early entry to attractions in the park. In summer, they enter 30 minutes before day visitors; in winter, 60 minutes.
