“A beautiful clean well run campsite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2010

Four adults and two teenagers travelling
Beautiful well kept site.

Our two vans arrived at Hobby after a long journey from France. Heidi gave us an in depth run down of all the facilities and rules of the campsite. She showed us to our pitch and checked the polarity of the electricity for us. She told us that she likes a nice peaceful site and does not like anyone who likes to make a noise. They can go elsewhere in her opinion.
The site is in a stunning location the views are second to none. It is within easy walking distance of Interlaken, if you don’t want to walk then Heidi gives you a free bus pass when you arrive.

The site is spotless. Toilets, showers and wash up areas are immaculate. Heidi’s shop has a supply of basic groceries and you have to order your bread the day before. This comes from an award-winning baker and it tastes great. The shop is opened from early in the morning till after 7 at night. The pitches are of reasonable size so that I did not feel packed in like sardines unlike some campsites I have stayed at in Interlaken

Heidi is great for giving information on the local area. She is an animal lover with a dog and two cats so she knows where to take the dog a walk, she has lots of information on cycle routes etc.

I can’t rate this place highly enough.

We arrived the first year 2005 to Camping Hobby and we were greeted by Heidi, who showed us around the complex and gave us a run down on how the campground operated, quiet times etc. Fantastic cup of cofee in the morning and some crossiants, and enough imformation to keep us busy for each day. The facilities are fantastic, and kept in spotless condition at all times.TV room and internet to keep in touch with hoom being Ireland in our case.. On our first trio there was two of us Denis and myself Jimmy. On our second trip our other biking friend Andy came along 2006 and again our stay was brillant, and with Heidis information we expierienced a totally different variation of things to do and see to our previous trip. For 2007 my brother Con joined us on our yearly european trip and upon our arrival , his first comments were about the reception we recieved from Heidi..He said it was as if we were family arriving home,.This is a brillant campsite lacking nothing in home comforts ,with a warm welcome. We did not make it for 08 but we have already started plans for 09, and we cannot wait to see the beautiful sights of Interlaken and a welcome back from Heidi and family Jimmy Duggan Macroom Co Cork Ireland

We were looking for somewhere that was walking distance from Interlaken (for things to do and places to eat) and close to Launterbrunnen and Grindlewald (for walking) and Camping Hobby was perfectly sited for all of this.
It has fantasic views in which ever direction you look, Harder Kulm to one side, Neilson to the other and beautiful views from the tent of the Eiger, Monk and Jungfrau.
Heidi and Lily Blatter run the site. Heidi welcomed us and gave us a tour of the facilities. Her English is excellent and she also speaks other languages. She gave us plenty of information on the local area and our passes for the free local transport and made us feel very welcome.
She also gave us our deposit back, which meant we had some money to spend in the well stocked little shop!
The facilities include excellent, clean modern toilets and showers which are open from 07.30-22.15 and another toilet block right next to it with 'wash cabins' open 24hrs. In the latter there is also a washing machine (2f) and dryer in the 'ladies' block.
There is a 'camper station' area with drinking water, waste water disposal, washing up sinks and a sink for washing clothes, a recreation room with TV and high speed internet connection (2francs gets you an hours surfing- handy if it's raining). The camp entrance is locked to cars at 22.30 and there is a quiet policy from 22.30-7.30. This was observed during our stay and we found it very peaceful.
All tents and caravans are sited facing Jungfrau so you don't feel like there's anyone looking into your tent, and if you can see through the trees, everyone gets a beatiful view if the mountains.
There's a playground for the children, along with 2 large paddling pools (which were covered nightly and cleaned regulary)- we hardly saw our 8 year old during our stay!
Camping Hobby is an excellently run site and we really enjoyed our stay. There was nothing we could fault.
We plan to return next year, and can't wait!!
