Dieser Platz war für uns als Ausgangspunkt in den Alpstein ideal. Wir wurden vom Chef persönlich sehr freundlich empfangen. Am Abend haben wir im Restaurant gegessen, vorzüglich! Der Weg zu den sanitären Anlagen ist je nach Stellplatz eher weit, dafür neu erstellt und sehr gepflegt.

Wir verbrachten ein herrliches Weekend auf dem Campingplatz beim Landgasthof Eischen oberhalb der Stadt Appenzell.

Hier die 100% ehrlichen Empfindungen:

• Empfang: top, älterer Eigentümer hat mit viel Charme uns die Anlage und den Stellplatz gezeigt
• Site: sensationell mit atemberaubender Aussicht über das gesamte Appenzellerland
• Sanitäre Einrichtungen: Wohlfühlprogramm pur, renoviert. Man wähnt sich in einem SPA-Palast
• Indoor Pool: vorhanden aber leider nicht benützt
• Ausflüge: Wandern, Velofahren – herrlich
• Restaurant Landgasthof: unglaublich feine Küche, top Service. Spezieller Dank hier an Patricia – Weltklasse Service!
• Preis: absolut gerechtfertigter Preis für die tolle Anlage
• Konsequenz: GERNE WIEDER !!!!

Sehr freundlicher, hilfsbereiter Betreiber. Ruhiger, schöner, (abgelegener) Platz mit viel Outdoor möglichkeiten, einfach wunderbar! Perfekt saubere, neue Dusch- WC Anlage. Abwaschraum hell, gross, sauber, auch mit Abwaschmaschine (10 Min.Progr.) Hilfsbereitschaft wird gross geschrieben, Danke schön.

„Leider“ waren die schönsten und besten Campingplätze auf dem Rest unserer Reise durch die Schweiz meist nur halb so teuer. Es gibt null Schatten, ist uneben, unpersönlich und bestenfalls als pausenplatz für die Durchreise zu empfehlen. Mit Glück bekommt man eine gute Aussicht, sanitäre Anlagen sind gut, wenn auch die Duschen zusätzlich kosten.Bond uns keine Empfehlung!

Travelling party: Seniors

Herrlicher schöner Ort auf 1000müM. Phantastische Lage zum Wandern. Die Sanitäranlage ist integriert im Hotel, zusammen mit den Restaurantbesucher!!!!! d.H. keine eigene Anlage. Abrissgebühr pro Person pro Nacht Fr.1.-!! Das gibt es auf der ganzen Welt nirgends. Für mich nicht Acsi-Standard.
