Comfort in nature: glamping is luxury instead of air mattresses

Traben-Trarbach (dpa / tmn) - Camping offers relaxation in nature without a long journey. Ideal for the Coorna period. But many think immediately of air mattresses, sleeping bags, canned ravioli and precarious hygiene conditions - not very charming. Traben-Trarbach on the Moselle, for example, shows that there is another way.
The Heritage & Nature Glam Camp offers a lot of comfort and nice extras: Moselle view, fireplace, relaxation garden, terrace and a real bed. There is also running water, bedside tables and a kitchen with a coffee machine. Everything in the giant tent.
What is offered here is called glamping, a combination of the words glamor and camping. This type of vacation is not really new - but it is currently popular again with people who cannot travel far and do not feel like having an air mattress.
Comfortable idyll by the river
Julian Stolte is the operator of the Moselle camp. “I'm a freak, an inventor and designer,” says the 45-year-old. He used at least 80 to 90 percent recycled materials. Stolte wants to leave the smallest possible ecological footprint.
Moselle ships cruise behind the wicker chair on which the trained carpenter sits. Traben-Trarbach castle and shoreline complete the postcard idyll. You can even see the opposite bank from your bed. Fireflies, lavender scent. A screech owl calls for the night - after all, it feels a bit like wilderness.
A pioneer tells
Celine Bossanne has been a glamper from the very beginning. In 1999 she and her husband founded the camping village of Huttopia in France. "We wanted to transform the image of camping, offer stays in nature, in beautiful places - but with comfort," she explains. 20 years later, Huttopia is present with tents, huts and cottages in 60 locations worldwide.
Bossane explains the need behind glamping: “We all have a real need for nature. We are increasingly urban and need special, natural and simple experiences, but we don't want to miss our comfort. "
Being in nature is high season because of the corona pandemic. Via portals such as wwww.glampings.de or www.glamping.info, vacationers can book accommodations throughout Europe - even for autumn.
The origins of glamping
“The roots go back to the beginning of the 20th century, with European and American safaris in Africa,” explains Sven Schuurmans, owner of the Glampings portal. The well-to-do travelers were used to comfort and luxury and would not have simply wanted to give up their camping lifestyle. Later, the Dutch and the English discovered glamping for themselves.
Glamping is often associated with extremely luxurious offers on a five-star level, according to pioneer Bossanne. But that's not always the case. "Suppliers interpret the meaning differently," says Schuurmans. "A safari tent with a bathtub and a panoramic view or a row of camping vehicles with a veranda - that is all glamping at the moment." So travelers should pay close attention to what they are booking.
The glamping concept is somewhat reminiscent of historical models: royal tents, Bedouin tents, Roman tents. Julian Stolte puts it this way: "Pioneering style at a high level."
