DCC Europa Prize 2013 awarded by the President of DCC and F.I.C.C. Vice-President Mr. Karl Zahlmann in the presence of the Mayor of Essen, Mr. Jelinek, and F.I.C.C. President Mr. Joao Alves Pereira.

This year five more campsites were delighted to be awarded the DCC Europa Prize for 2013. They are now part of a small but select group of well-managed European campsites that provide a varied and pleasant camping experience for all and DCC has no hesitation recommending each of them to campers young and old.
When choosing prize winners, no importance is attached to how a campsite scores solely in terms of luxury or whether it has the best and most elaborate entertainment programme. What is important is that the campsite is well-managed and cared for, that managers are open to new ideas, understand and are in tune with the mood of their guests. Any campsite that achieves these objectives provides a perfect setting for a restful and refreshing holiday. The Prize has been awarded since 1996 and every year of course some campsites are honoured that are already well known to a wide circle of campers. However many a jewel is brought into the spotlight when the prize winners are announced.
Five campsites scored equally well in 2013 and claimed a place on the “podium“ . They provide an attractive holiday destination for campers of all ages, attending to the needs of every visitor – a real “home from home“ in fact.
The five campsites are: Alpen-Caravanpark Achensee in Achenkirch/Austria, LernCamping Moosbauer near Bozen/Italy, the German campsite LuxOase near Saxon Switzerland, Strasko campsite near Novalja on the island of Pag/Croatia and Treunal campsite in the heart of Catalonia.
