Why can’t I choose a specific pitch when I book online? Can I select the pitch number?

As a rule, guests are not able to select their pitch number. If you have a favourite pitch or have any other requests in terms of location, please let us know in the Comments field when you book online. We will always do our best to accommodate your wishes.

I can't book online because I don’t have a credit card – what should I do?

Please send your booking request via e-mail to camping.(name of the camping)@tcs.ch. Please note that bookings completed via e-mail take a bit more time, and that online bookings have priority.

Are there any booking fees?
