Water sports are an ideal addition to a camping holiday
Campsites are often located by the water, not just on the coast but also inland. Many campers have a great affinity to water anyway and often combine their holidays with various water sports activities. Since boats up to a motorization of 15 HP have been allowed to drive license-free on all national German waterways (inland and coastal) with the exception of the Rhine, it has become a lot easier for campers to get on board and out on the water and use boating as a welcome upgrade to their favourite type of holiday.
Large variety of mobile water sports activities
In addition to trailerable boats, mobile water sports offer a wide range of activities on, around or in the water, which can be perfectly combined with a holiday on camping sites by lakes, rivers or the coast. Stand up paddling boards, which are also available in inflatable versions, are the easiest to stow away and transport. Kiteboarding does not pose any major logistic challenges to campers either. Surfboards and canoes are also often seen as accessories on camping holidays, as they are easy to transport on roof racks. All these water sports activities are easy to learn and do not require large investments to get started.

Camping holidays by boat made easy - this is the motto of the information point on camping and water sports at the CARAVAN SALON 2019 in Hall 7. Take your first steps in the boat simulator and if you want to find out more about your future hobby afterwards, you will find all the important information about getting started and the most beautiful spots for beginners at www.entdecke-wassersport.de
