Discover a slice of camping heaven in the Austrian Alps
Keen campers Camilla, Stefan and their children Lily, 6, and Alfred, 4, couldn’t wait to explore beautiful and sunny Carinthia. Nestled between mountains in the Austrian Alps and dotted with glistening warm lakes, Carinthia has spectacular landscape in every direction. As Lily pointed out: “It almost looks like a painting!”
Where they stayed
Driving from their homeland in Denmark, the family spent four nights at Camping Brunner Am See. This award winning, campsite is set against the backdrop of Lake Millsteatter See and has its own private beach.
“Camping Brunner Am See is such a brilliant campsite, in a setting more beautiful than we could have ever imagined. We had a breathtaking view of the lake - it’s a sight we will never forget,” said Camilla, adding with a smile: “Alfred was super excited about being able to jump directly into the water from our pitch!”
Getting set up
Surrounded by majestic mountains with the lake in front of them, the family quickly pitched their spacious Birchdale 6PA Prime Air tent.
“The kids helped and we had some good laughs while pumping the air tubes. Decorating the tent was a group project. It’s important to us to create a home feel at the campsite, because we enjoy being able to kick back and recharge the batteries,” explained Stefan.
To do this, the family set up a dining room, kitchen and living room with a super comfy Aberdeen Lake Inflatable Sofa.
The kids couldn’t wait to try out their new Convertible sleeping bags.
“They were so excited they asked if they could go to bed right away, in the middle of the day!” laughed Camilla.
With atmospheric lights, soft furnishing and even a coffee machine, the tent soon felt like home and the family could truly relax.
“After a long car ride, we spent our first night playing board games and reading together on our inflatable sofa,” remembered Stefan. “For us, camping is a great way to connect as a family and spend time in nature.”
