Camping Vierthaler April 2016
site is about 30 minutes drive south of Salzburg, in an idyllic location with stunning mountain views. It’s on a long, narrow grassy field beside the River Salzach. A railway line runs along the opposite side of the river and the trains can be quite
noisy. There are no marked or numbered pitches, and not many EHU’s. There is a small shower block (tokens are needed), two outdoor washing up sinks, a washing machine and a small bar/cafe doing pizzas etc in high season. The owner is very pleasant and
However, it’s really only suitable for use in high summer. We arrived at the end of April and although the sun was shining in the day, the temperature plummeted
at night to near zero. This wouldn’t be a problem in a site with a good, enclosed, heated shower block, but the facilities here are very basic, although clean. Not only is the block not heated, it has some unglazed openings under the eaves which let
cold air in, so it’s freezing inside! Also, one of the two showers has no privacy and nowhere to hang clothes or towel. The second shower is in a small separate room which is private but just as cold. There’s very little lighting on site either,
except outside the shower block, so a torch would be useful.
It would be a great place in summer for outdoors types – there are numerous walks in the surrounding mountains.
However, if the camp site was full the sanitary facilities would be stretched. It was quite dear, at 20. 5 euros, although sites near Salzburg are expensive, with no ACSI sites in the area.
After one night we moved to a site nearer to Salzburg, with lots of facilities and a luxurious, heated shower block. Vierthaler’s a lovely site, it just wasn't the site for us.
