“Camping Birkelt, great site to start & finish a tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

This is the 4th time we have stayed on this campsite. The sanitory facilities are first class and heated under floor, just the job on a cool morning.

Lovely walk down into Larochette via a very scenic route. Petrol station and supermarket in the village as well as several restaurants, bank, shops etc.

It is approx. 250 miles to the Dunkirk port and takes about 5 hours with a couple of stops.

This was beautiful. Clean and well organised. The shop and facilities were excellent. The pool was thoroughly enjoyed by the kids. The local town is good and the locals friendly. Definitely worth a revisit.

We stayed at Birkelt April 2012 in a Eurocamp static home. It looked small from the outside, but turned out to be bigger then we thought once inside. It was clean and had a large shower, adequate kitchen and great deck. \the park itself was clean and tidy, nice pool. The restaurant was nice and the food really good. It had a very small bar and no entertainment while we were there so evenings were a bit boring. The local town of Larochette was a short walk away but very quiet, especially in the evenings. Day times however were great. Luxembourg is beautiful and full of fab castles and nice scenery. Its a great base for visiting Germany and France. We went to Metz, France and Trier, Germany, both lovely towns. The cathedral in Metz was stunning. Would definetly go back to Lux, but probably not to this site again due to the lack of things to do in the evenings.

We stayed with Eurocamp in 2010 was truly great holiday. Nice pool, friendly staff and a great kids club, mostly Dutch kids attended but they went out of their way to entertain Brit kids too. The village is quaint and the old Chateau in Larochette was worth a look, we ate in the village which was very nice and the city of Luxembourg a great day trip also.
Handy to visit Germany also the nearby Roman city of Trier is worth visiting and we enjoyed the cruise on the river there too. Great scenery nearby the area is known as "Little Switzerland" and that kinds sums up the area very nicely, great site, great location = great holiday, enjoy.

We stayed in a Eurocamp Tent, basic but perfectly comfortable. Pitches are of a decent size, unlike some of the french sites we've stayed at there is no real separation of the pitches, by hedges or things like that, so it's quite open.

The entire site was a paradise for Wasps, they do sell some good 'whackers' in the camp shop though.

The site itself is clean and tidy with excellent wash/shower facilities, that were well maintained.

The swimming pool was clean, if a little cold, soon got used to that though. The Bar/Restaurant was very good, food service prompt and reasonable value given that Luxembourg is not the cheapest of places.

Camp shop has all the basic necessities, and there is a large supermarket 10 mins drive away, much cheaper. For kids, there is daily entertainment put on, but be aware this is all in Dutch! The site appears primarily to be full of Dutch, with the odd British Family. The staff all speak excellent english and are very friendly and welcoming.

Larochette is a pretty village with a beautiful castle overlooking, some nice walks to be had round about. The site is easy to get to and is in a good location to head off elsewhere, we will definitely be coming back next year.

We stayed there in a Vacansoleil tent and we really liked it there. All of the pitches were quite large, there were a lot of trees and some bushes around so we could be with the nature and not only with our neighbours. The bathrooms were clean and warm, which in may was really appreciated. I think there were enough shower and toilet cabins.
The camping is located on a hill over the town of Larochette. It is really close to the town on a map, but some people might find it difficult to get there on foot as it is quite a steep walk. But it's good to know you can walk there if you like and Larochette is such a cute small town!
There are many things to do on the camping itself - swimming pool, gym, shops and restaurants. If you like to do sightseeing - you're in a good place as there are many lovely towns and villages around, including the capital city or castles at Vianden and Beaufort. And you can always go hiking or biking, but that we didn't have time to do (only 2 nights spent there).

Me and my partner have just arrived home from a week in the beautiful little Duchy of Luxembourg. we arrived at the site on the Monday (24/10/11) and we were greeted by 3 very friendly and very helpful members of staff who all spoke fantastic English, One of them was from the west country by the sound of it. We arrived expecting to pay tourist tax and a hefty deposit like we had at other Vacancesoloel sites but we were glad to find that they just took our bank details, and we didn't have to pay tourist tax, which was great, The only thing we had to pay was a ten euro deposit for the key card to get in and out of the site.

The site is only small, but very well positioned to explore Lux. It has everything you want whether your a young or old couple or a family. there is a great all weather swimming pool, and great little shop to get your bread from in the morning, and a Café which you can have a few beers in later on at night. The Caravans are little compared to British ones, but we knew that, however ours did have a big fridge and freezer and a TV which had a few channels that showed English shows. Luckily we brought our laptop to take advantage of the free WiFi, and although it was a weak signal, it more than served its purpose for us.

For food there are many places for you to go, for groceries there is a shop in Larochette town. If you turn right at the main road down to the centre of town and then turn left there is a small supermarket next to the ESSO petrol station, alternatively if you turn left on the main road out of the camp site in about 8km you arrive at a big super market (Cactus) in the town of Mersch which is the size of an Asda or Tesco over here. Food is about the same as britain, maybe a little bit more expensive for some things, but spirits wine beer and cigarettes are much cheaper than in the uk and the rest of Europe. If you want to go for a nice meal there is a fantastic place in the Larochette called Op Der Bleech, which make local specialities and more French and Belgium oriented cuisine. But be careful dining out can be very very expensive!

Luxembourg itself is a fantastic country, I cannot believe how much there is to see and do in such a tiny nation, I had plans to visit Aachen Metz and Maastrict but didn't get to see them as i was too busy enjoying Luxembourg! There seems to be a beautiful Châteaux in every town, but the best Castles for me were Beaufort, Vianden and Larochette, but i do suggest you try and see them all, as there all so beautiful and so well preserved. If you a fan of just driving around til you stumble upon a beautiful little town, or breathtaking view then this is the place for you i cannot speak more fondly of this place.

The Capital however was a bit of a disappointment for me. We got to the capital within half an hour and then it took me over an hour to find a place to park. The signs seem to tell you where the car parks are up until about half a mile before and then let you guess the actual location yourself. There are a few things to see and lots of good photo opportunities, but all in all, you can find just as much to do in the smaller towns in Lux.

Be sure to learn the Luxembourgian for Hello ( Moyen ) and goodbye ( addi ) it will get you some brownie points with the locals, and don't go expecting to be understood, not many people in Luxembourg know English, knowing basic French and German will help you no end.

This place, as cheesy as it sounds, was captivatingly beautiful, and it's people are warm and friendly to each other and outsiders (only 40% of Luxembourgers are native). I cannot thank the staff on the campsite more, and i cannot thank the people of Luxembourg enough for giving me and my partner a brilliant holiday.
