General information

So now you know all about Germany's fantastic lakes, sights and water sports facilities. Great. But there are still a few pieces of Germany travel information you need to have before you can get the most out of a holiday on or beside the water. These pages contain important information about traveling to Germany, including waterside camping, cycling, leisure pools, swimming pools, and river cruises.

What you need to know about German travel:

  • Waterside camping - Here you'll find contact information to help you learn all about Germany's more than 3,000 campsites, nearly one-third of which are located by the waterside. You can go swimming and participate in water sports at many of Germany's campsites.
  • Leisure pools, fun pools, wellness facilities - Travel to Germany and you'll find more leisure pools than anywhere else in Europe. There are a total of 400 pools, 150 of which are sophisticated adventure pools -- and most pools even have a special theme with catering available.
  • Cycling beside the water - An interesting piece of German travel information: Did you know that Germany is criss-crossed by about 200 long-distance cycle paths? Learn more here.
