Camping holidays in their own country have been very popular with many, not only since Corona. In a new series, FOCUS Online presents the most beautiful campsites in every federal state: today Brandenburg.
1. Senftenberger See family park, Großkoschen
It is hard to believe that the beautiful Senftenberger See in the Lusatian Lakeland is not a natural lake at all, but a flooded lignite mine, which took almost five years to fill – with 1300 hectares it is even one of the largest artificial lakes in the Republic.
The campsite of the same name, which is located directly on the water, is a paradise for children, because there is everything the kids can enjoy: a cinema, a playroom for bad weather and a play garden with a water slide, trampolines, mini golf and a bowling alley – and of course a 600 meter long sandy beach with a large lawn. There is also a nudist area for die-hard nudists.
The campsite has 170 pitches, which are between 80 and 100 square meters in size, equipped with electricity, sewage and fresh water connections. The cozy camping restaurant with beer garden offers home-style cuisine and invites you to a barbecue once a week.
2. Eurocamp Spreewald tour, Groß Leuthen
The Spreewald in Brandenburg is one of the most beautiful natural and cultural landscapes in Germany. A boat trip through the extensive water network past the picturesque villages of this region should be on every bucket list for holidaymakers in Germany.
A good starting point to explore this region is the Eurocamp Spreewaldtor: It borders directly on the Spreewald Biosphere Reserve. The 14-hectare area with 210 parking spaces is located on Lake Leuthen – it is only a few minutes' walk to the bathing area with a sandy beach, jetty and a water playground. Those who do not have their own camping equipment can also spend the night in beautiful safari tents.
The center of the campsite is designed like a village square – with colorful thatched roof houses. There is also the outdoor pool and a new wellness area with sauna, steam bath and experience shower. In addition: a mini market, a restaurant, a soccer field, a playground and shuttle buses to the surrounding sights such as Lübben, Burg and Lübbenau.

3. Riegelspitze flower camp, Werder / Havel
The four-star facility Blütencamping Riegelspitze is located just ten kilometers southwest of Potsdam on a natural peninsula. The location on a promontory on the east bank of Glindower See is something special because the square is surrounded by water on two sides and connected to other lakes by a canal.
In addition to the 130 parceled-out pitches with electricity, sewage and fresh water connections, this well-maintained facility also offers various co-accommodations: from simply equipped overnight barrels, comfortably furnished lodges and Finnish kottas to a circus wagon and a boat house right on the water.
The place is ideal for water sports enthusiasts: there is a boat rental and berths for everyone who brings their own boat. There is also a 50 meter long sandy beach with sunbathing areas, children's playground and beach volleyball as well as a restaurant with beer garden.

4th adventure camp Lausitz, Ortrand
The Lausitz adventure camp is located in a quiet, green area and on a small stream – about 35 minutes by car north of Dresden. The family-run and quiet facility currently offers 87 parking spaces with electricity, sewage and fresh water connections as well as a tent meadow with many shady spots.
In addition to a bread service for breakfast, a mini market, a barbecue area and a bicycle and game rental, children can look forward to a rock-designed playground including a trampoline and table tennis table. There is also a barbecue area with tables and benches for a family picnic right next door.
Leisure tips: Definitely explore the rural region by bike – the Brandenburg Tour takes you right past – as well as trips to the Königsbrucker Heide and the Spreewald, both of which can be reached in about 40 minutes by car.
5. Spreewald-Natur-Camping am Schlosspark, Lübbenau
This well-maintained four-star campsite in the town of Lübbenau, which is also known as the gateway to the Spreewald, is located directly on the main flow of the Spree. Perfect for anyone who wants to explore this region on water hikes: Here vacationers start directly by boat into the quaint labyrinth of 150 waterways. The operator rents kayaks and canoes. If you don't want to paddle yourself, you can also take part in organized trips with a typical table barge.
The complex is located on a small peninsula on the castle grounds and offers 140 mainly parceled-out places; the two sanitary buildings are ultra-modern and chic. It is only five minutes walk to the center of Lübbenau and ten minutes to the pretty Spreewald village of Lehde.
Tip: Children can let off steam in the playground on a very beautiful and wooden playground with swings, walkways and huts; In addition, the city of Lübbenau opened a large adventure playground in 2019 directly behind the town hall.
