Great site within walking distance of Rüdesheim am Rhine

Stayed here in May 2019 and arrived on the May Day holiday and the town and the site was busy,but was met at reception by the good English speaking warden who offered us a spacious pitch with water electric and grey disposal. The site has a nice ambience,was clean and there was a shop/bakery and a nice bar area overlooking the Rhine. There were two toilet blocks,one of which had no showers. The toilets,showers were spotless and of a high standard. The warden seemed to be omnipresent to answer any questions. The electricity supply has to be attached by one of the site staff the connection being in a locked cabinet so if you need to leave very early in the morning make arrangements so that your cable can be unlocked. The site is next to a large open air pool with high diving board and seating. The site is perfectly located by the river Rhine,and the 2 klm walk into Rüdesheim is along two wide,parallel paths/bike paths,that pass the Rhine boat trip offices and the many cruise ships that visit the town. The path is flat and offers great views of the river. Rüdesheim is a very pretty town,famous for wine production. There are many souvenir shops on the Rhine frontage and many lively cafes,bars and restraunts,as well as quiet corners,museums and there is a tourist office which was very helpful. The cable car from Rüdesheim takes you over the wine fields to the Niederwald Denkmalpflege,a large statue built to commemorate the Prussian victories of 1870/71 and German unification. From here a pleasant walk brings you to a second cable car which takes you down to the village of assmannhausen. You can buy a Rüdesheim “ ring” ticket that allows use of both cable cars and returning to Rüdesheim via one of the many Rhine ferries. You can catch a ferry to Bingen opposite Rüdesheim and another ferry later to Rüdesheim using the Ring ticket. There are several Rhine cruises available from Rüdesheim that take you on a tour to see the many castles on the Rhine banks. There is a 4 to 5 hour tour that takes you to the Lorely rock passing Bacharach town. Other trips take you further to Mainz and Coblenz. There is a lovely convent above Rüdesheim accessed by a pleasant but sometimes steep walk through the vineyards. A charge is paid to go inside the convent but outside there is a gift shop and cafe with fantastic views of Rüdesheim and the river.

Lovely site close to town and next to an outdoor swimming pool complex

We stayed here in August 2018. The pitches weren't separated by hedges et,c as they are in a lot of European sites, but we had plenty of space for our outfit. The toilet blocks are among the best I have seen in Europe. The site has a small shop, bar and restaurant. There are several supermarkets within walking distance, and the lovely town is within walking distance. Next to the site is an outdoor swimming pool complex with a small slide and some diving boards, plus table tennis and volley ball and a cafe. It is not expensive to enter.

Good location but cramped site

The site is a 15 minute walk along the Rhine to Rudesheim which is a very pretty town with lots to do. The location is great with easy access to Rhine day cruises. However, the site is chaotic in terms of pitches. Vans and tents are squeezed in, pitches are not marked out and some vans and tents are literally within touching distance of eachother. I have never, ever seen such close proximity, a definite fire hazard and I am surprised that the Club recommends this site. Walking across to the shower blocks is also a hazard as guy ropes are everywhere. The toilet blocks are modern and very clean, which is a bonus. Pitches looking on to the Rhine, we were told, are only for clients who are staying a fortnight. We stayed for 6 nights in July 2018

Excellent!

We stayed here for 2 weeks in September 2017, and were given a pitch overlooking the river by the manager who spoke some English. Reviewers should remember that this is a different country, they are not obliged to speak English! Site facilities are brilliant, and it took a matter of moments to work out where to get water from etc etc. It is easy to get the 30% off the boats, just ask when you book at their office, where they speak excellent English. When you are guided to your pitch, another chap connects your electric to a locked point, it is not an issue, and this gent is very friendly and helpful, and he really took a liking to lour two dogs! Excellent site, Rudesheim itself is no more that a 15 minute walk along the river.

Disappointed

We arrived for a 1 night stay enroute to Rotterdam from Italy. We arrived and the lady on reception spoke no English and she got another non English speaking gentlemen to take us to our site. No details of where the toilet or drinking water ar anything else was given as no one spoke English. The pitches where very cramped and not sure if staying for more than one night we would have fitted an awning in. I must say the toilet and shower facilities are excellent more like a spa than a toilet block but prehaps this site is better suited to a German speaking person as English was non existent. We found the toilets easy enough whilst exploring and eventually found the showers in a different block. Not sure which was drinking water but luckily we had enough with us. Not sure how you get 30% of boat trips or a free map but they where not freely given. A lovely position however right on the Rhine and a short walk in to the town.

we went for a lovely meal at the ratsstube restaurant in the town and had planned a night cap at the site bar however when we arrived at 21:30 it had closed already.
