Camping: Easter Madness!  Hundreds of holidaymakers storm the North Sea

Camping: Easter Madness! Hundreds of holidaymakers storm the North Sea

The camping season on the coast begins just in time for Easter. This place can no longer save itself from inquiries!

Despite the bad weather conditions in northern Germany, vacationers have been standing in front of the barrier for days at the beginning of the camping season. Lots of long term campers arrive and the crowds are huge. However, one detail causes problems during construction.

Camping: “Everyone wants to be first”

Shortly before the Easter holidays, the first campers on the North Sea coast of Lower Saxony pitched their tents and set up their caravans on the pitches. Amid persistent rain and seven-degree temperatures, the first 120 campers waited at the camp gate in Schillig, Frisia, early Thursday morning for the start of the camping season. “Everyone wants to be first,” groundskeeper Ingo Cross said.

All long term campers enjoy their own permanent parking space. Lining up at the beginning of the season, sometimes with an overnight stay in front of the barrier, is still a cult for campers. That has evolved over the years, Cross said. “There are guests here who have been at their usual place for 35 or 40 years and are still at the checkpoint at 7 a.m. just to get in.” At Easter, about 80 percent of the total 1,500 parking spaces will be at the campsite. A place in the Friesland region.

Camping: setup problems

Andre Gartner and his family from Diesen in the Teutoburg Forest were among the first to wait at the checkpoint to be let in. The family had already arrived on Wednesday afternoon. Campers have been coming to Shillig for many years – this year for the first time as long-term campers. The family wants to come to the arena as often as possible in the coming months.

However, after all the rain in recent weeks, some campers had to struggle in the muddy ground when setting up. The convoys were pushed into position by muscle force – and sometimes tractors and bulldozers had to help too.
Campers are now hoping for friendlier weather over the Easter weekend. According to forecasts by the German Meteorological Service, the thermometer on the North Sea coast is expected to reach 13 degrees on Easter – plus there are always clouds that bring rain. (dpa)
