Pets are not allowed in our rental accommodations!

In case of a violation of the campsite regulations, especially of the night rest period from 22:00 - 07:00 o’clock, guests can be expelled from the campsite after one warning. The obligation to pay the entire stay remains in that case.

The existing provisions apply accordingly in the event that the contract is shown to have omissions.
