Camping with Eurocamp always means enjoying the great outdoors, and there are few places that can compare to Switzerland for either the beauty of its scenery or its wide range of outdoor pursuits. With excellent roads and the choice of Geneva, Zurich and Basel airports for fly-drive customers, getting to our parcs here is also easy.
Camping Jungfrau at Lauterbrunnen enjoys a wonderful valley location, and surroundings of both lush meadows and high peaks, with a host of opportunities for exploring on the doorstep. The impressive Jungfraujoch mountain begs to be visited, though you will need the services of the cable car, and the mountain railway at Schynige Platte offers one of the most exhilarating journeys imaginable.
Nearby Manor Farm at Interlaken offers you all this, plus direct access to the gorgeous Lake Thun, which makes a delightful spot to enjoy watersports, or to set off for a ramble through the hills that surround it.
Further South, you will find our parc at Susten, where you are free to sit by the pool and breathe in that clear alpine air, or perhaps to visit the incredible Matterhorn.
But whatever you choose to do, like many Eurocamp customers, you are sure to be struck by the sheer perfection of the landscape, as well as the enthusiasm the Swiss have for cycling, hiking and even paragliding on every available hill. They really love the outdoors here, which is a big part of what makes Switzerland such a popular camping destination.
Lovely Geneva is also a must-see while you are here, and while the cuisine can be eclectic with the influences of France and Italy so close, no trip to Switzerland is complete without a visit to a traditional Fondue restaurant.
With both French and Italian influences in Switzerland why not take a look at our French campsites and Italian Lakes holidays for other great Eurocamp holiday locations.
Camping in Switzerland guarantees you access to some truly beautiful cities, as well as some of the most perfect scenery on the planet:
On the shores of Lake Geneva you will find one of Europe’s most charming cities, with a host of sights to enjoy; from the famous Jet d’Eau fountain shooting water 140 metres in to the air, to the wonderful old town and St Peter’s Cathedral.
The Swiss capital is a beautiful, medieval city with a host of sandstone buildings, towers and bridges to enjoy. Built largely in the gothic style, it is most famous for the multitude of stone arcades that shelter its main promenades.
A lovely town in its own right, Interlaken is perhaps most famous for its views, as it stands in the shadows of the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau mountains. A trip on the Jungfrau cog railway to the world’s highest railway station is also recommended.
Picture-postcard pretty, Lucerne is lined with historic houses and decorated with lovely frescoes. It also features the picturesque Chapel Bridge, a covered, wooden bridge decorated with heraldic and religious images, that crosses the lake.
Lying on the lovely banks of Lake Lugano, the town has a wonderful, historic centre, with many fine buildings in the Italianate Lombardy style. It is also home to the Museo Cantonale d'Arte, where you will find works by Klee, Renoir and Degas.
With a perfect setting on the banks of Lake Geneva, and the Savoy Alps on the horizon, Lausanne is a very beautiful old town. It also offers a number of parks with a surprisingly Mediterranean feel, and perhaps the finest gothic cathedral in Switzerland.
Built by the Dukes of Zähringen in the early 12th century, Schloss Thun is a striking and perfectly preserved medieval castle set high above the town of Thun. The interiors and even the dungeons are superb, as is the regional museum that is housed here.
This vast subterranean lake is the largest of its kind in all Europe. Measuring 300m long and up to 20m wide, the caverns have been beautifully lit, making the 30-minute guided boat trip a unique and memorable experience.
Thermal Baths, Leukerbad
The thermal baths at Leukerbad are some of the most popular in the Alps, and while there are many treatments available here, it is the chance to lie in thermal springs under clear skies that makes it such a popular attraction.
Located in Granges, Happyland is Switzerland’s biggest theme park, with a wide range of rides and attractions for all ages, including the Splash River log flume for older children and teens, plus lots of fun rides for little ones.
Swiss Open-Air Museum, Ballenberg
This lovely farm museum features historic farm buildings in the style of all thirteen of Switzerland’s rural regions, together with more than 250 farm animals including sheep, goats, hens, bees, pigs and rabbits.
The lake offers more than 20 outdoor activities, including kayaking, paragliding, sailing, wakeboarding, windsurfing and bungee jumping, making it an evergreen favourite with older children and teens.
There is no better way to enjoy the majesty of the Swiss Alps than from a hot air balloon, and as there are reckoned to be no less than 600 balloons for hire in Switzerland, you will be spoiled for choice wherever you are in the country.
The high cost of land in Switzerland means that there are only about 30 courses in the whole country, and playing 18 holes can be very expensive. Nevertheless, if you play the courses at Geneva, Lucerne or Lausanne, you will find all they offer a superb setting.
There are a multitude of hiking trails offering spectacular scenery in Switzerland, though the Chemin du Gruyère: The Swiss Chocolate and Cheese Trail, from Charmy, with its added sampling opportunities, is one of our favourites.
Switzerland is a great place for both cycle touring and mountain biking. There are also no less than 53 marked regional routes that allow you to discover the best of your chosen region in a day, and plenty of cycle hire shops too.
Montreux Jazz Festival – Early to Mid July

Jungfrau Music Festival – Early July
Interlaken hosts this popular festival of classical music every July, with orchestras of international standing taking the same stage as younger competitors in the festival’s competitive sections.
Lucerne Summer Festival – August/September

Festival of the Future – Early August
Strangely named for a festival of Chamber Music, this appealingly informal event in Valais is designed to ensure a future for this charming but old-fashioned musical genre.
Best-known for its cheese and chocolate, you will find that Switzerland offers a rich and varied cuisine with many influences: though the cheese dishes really are something special:
Surrounded by snow-capped peaks, Bella Tolla is a beautiful base from which to discover the pure air and natural of Switzerland, with a host of fabulous walks to enjoy.
Offering a wonderful location on the shores of the gorgeous Lake Thun, Manor Farm is an immaculate parc offering great opportunities for lake swimming, hiking and cycling.
