guest reviews

ADAC & ANWB verified 4.5 star rating

Camping Grubhof in St. Martin bei Lofer is put to the test annually by ADAC and ANWB inspectors. We currently hold the title ADAC Tipp 2024 with a 4.5 star rating. This title is awarded to campsites with a “very good” classification in the ADAC/ ANWB camping guide 2024.

ADAC Camping Caravanning Award

With this award, campsites are recognised who offer special attractions or extraordinary concepts alongside the standard facilities and programmes.

A quote from ADAC: "The Austrian winner Grubhof in St. Martin bei Lofer stands out due to its XX-large pitch concept. Well equipped, generously dimensioned hardstandings carefully integrated into a spacious country park landscape with river and mountain views make Grubhof our prizewinner."

Camping Grubhof in the book "Cool Camping Europa"

It is a particularly special award for us to be one of just three austrian campsites recognised in the book "Cool Camping Europa". In this book, the author recommends 100 sensational campsites for tent holidays. It also includes many practical tips on transport, meals, accommodation, costs, opening times & activities.

DCC-Europapreis/German Camping Club European Prize 2016 for Camping Grubhof

Germany’s camping specialist association, the DCC, has been awarding the the Europapreis to campsites since 1996. The award is given to campsites that have an exceptional amount to offer to their guests.

That could of course be perfect luxury, but it could also be a rich history or mediterranean flair as well as carefully managed campsites where owners are actively involved, bringing together ideas and personality for the good of the guests. At the Reise + Camping holiday conference in Essen, the Grubhof was crowned a winner, among other campsites in Germany, Denmark, Croatia and France. 

The Grubhof stands out due to its generous pitches. Guests can enjoy huge pitches of at least 180 square metres – that impressed the judges, too.
