Switzerland: Camping

A summer and winter sports paradise

Switzerland Camping

Camping is a popular activity in Switzerland. Most towns and even many villages in Switzerland have organised campsites; however, availability of campsites in Switzerland depends on seasonal factors. Because of the cold weather in Switzerland during the winter months, camping is less common and many campsites in Switzerland are closed outside of the peak summer months. This is especially the case for campsites located at high altitudes in the mountains of Switzerland.

The quality of campsites in Switzerland is very good with washing and showering facilities with hot and cold running water. Campsites in Switzerland charge in three ways: per person, per tent and per car. Prices for campsites in Switzerland are generally low but if you want to camp or go mountain walking in Switzerland in the busy summer months are advised to book ahead.
