Uhlenköper-Camp Uelzen Festplatzweg 11 29525 Uelzen, Germany

Relaxed eco-friendly site with good access to the Lüneburger Heide region.

‘The hiiills are aliiive with...the sight of heather?’ Yes, from August through till September, Germany’s Lüneburger Heide region hits its purple patch. Its heathlands are transformed into oceans of mauve so expansive that Prince could write songs about them. There are heather festivals and annual crownings of heather queens, and tourists overwhelm local towns and villages.

Amidst this violet fury lies Uhlenköper, a tranquil eco-site ensconced in the itsy-bitsy village of Westerweyhe, near Uelzen. Run by Gertrud and Thomas Körding, this three-acre site has been carved up into areas for dauercampers (permanent residents), caravans and larger tents, tenters and cyclists. In between flow the site’s public areas: a solar-powered reception (with shower block, restaurant and bio-shop), modest playground and – pièce de résistance – a spanking new swimming pool with sections for swimmers and paddlers.

Offsite fun can be had cycling, kayaking on the Ilmenau or checking out Natur Park Sudheide, where you can glimpse the black-haired rams with white bodies that resemble woolly pints of Guinness. If nothing else they make a change from all that purple.
