This is probably a lovely location in summer. In winter it lacks atmosphere but is still great value with an ASCI card. Staff friendly and welcoming. Open all year but note that mostly grass pitches so care in winter.


For our 2nd night away we decided to stay at Camping Alter Bahnhof in Metzdorf. Our night wild camping in Calais was followed by a short visit to Luxembourg. With time passing we decided to try and find a campsite close to the Luxembourg / Germany border. A quick look in the ASCI book revealed that Camping Alter Bahnhof in Metzdorf would be our best option. Many campsites are closed off season and with no booking we were pleased to find this one had space.

Camping Alter Bahnhof, Metzdorf – Good value winter option

One potential downside is that the pitches are grass. Indeed when trying to pitch the motorhome we did find the wheels slipping slightly. Once parked up we visited reception which was closed. A sign directed us to the main house where we found the owner. The cost for the night was just €14.00 with the ASCI card. For this price you got electric hookup, a code to use the free wifi and key for the heated shower block.

The campsite is located on the banks of the River Sûre, also known as Sauer Fluss in German. In summer I’d imagine this is a lovely location popular with motorhome owners. On a cold, wet February day though there was a distinct lack of atmosphere. It seems as though this campsite relies on seasonal or long term stays off season. Most of the other motorhomes and caravans we saw were older German made vehicles with permanent awnings.

For us this was just a place to stop for the night. The campsite does have a number of decent walking and cycling routes and seems popular for fishing too. It would also make a great base if you wanted to visit the historic cities of Trier in Germany or Echternach in Luxembourg. In summary if you have an ASCI card, Camping Alter Bahnhof is a great value place to stay and comes highly recommended.
