Thuringia and Rhineland-Westphalia are the cheapest regions for camping in Germany

Camping in North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) has become cheaper than last year, in contrast to the national trend in Germany, where camping holidaymakers face an average price increase. This was the discovery made by ADAC through its camping portal, PiNCAMP. Despite higher costs overall in 2023, camping remains hugely popular. The national average price for one night rose from 38.33 to 42.62 euros. However, the situation is different in the North Rhine-Westphalia region, which is the second most affordable federal state for camping holidaymakers.

Considering the average price of the previous year in the region (37.02 euros), camping has become cheaper this year. For example, one night camping for two adults and a ten-year-old child has an average cost of only 36.84 euros. This amount is not only lower than the national average price, but makes North Rhine-Westphalia the second cheapest region for camping in Germany, after Thuringia. In particular, prices are low in the Bergisches Land and Tecklenburger Land areas, where they are around 32 euros per night. Conversely, in many other federal states the prices are significantly higher, as in the case of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania (48.25 euros), Brandenburg (46.62 euros), Bavaria (44.06 euros), Schleswig-Holstein ( 44 euros) and Baden-Württemberg (43.76 euros).

The price increase is mainly due to growing demand and rising energy and personnel costs. In Germany the general price increase is 11 percent, but campsite operators don’t just set prices once a year, but can adjust them according to demand and capacity.
