General

  • Riverside site on the Elbe, two kilometres from sandy lakeside beaches
  • A 35-minute drive to Hamburg
  • Restaurant with home-cooked food, events, terrace and beach dinners

Wherever you land up in the world, beach holidays are simply splendid. Riverside breaks, ditto. And if you're also within easy reach of a city such as spectacular Hamburg, you might feel you've been mighty lucky in your pick of holiday locale.

So it is at Lower Saxony's Campingplatz Stover Strand International, a 12-hectare site directly on the banks of the vast River Elbe and a couple of kilometres from sandy lakeside beaches for swimming, watersports and fishing. It's also – get your chuffed face ready – only 35 minutes' drive from Germany's second biggest city Hamburg (prep your sightseeing persona too; you'll want to spend several days here).

Stover Strand has spacious pitches overlooking the water within steps of the beach, and leisure facilities including a playground, miniature golf and a sports court. There's a well-stocked shop for your foodie bits and bobs, a snack bar and two restaurants with heated terraces and home-cooked meals including an a la carte menu, regional specialities and regular foodie events including barbecue buffets and dinners on the beach.

The staff can also put together a personal picnic basket or arrange a barbecue party for you; just ask when you arrive.

    Lovely cycle routes from the site. Modern, clean portacabin toilets and showers. Close to water and views. Nice level plots.

    Disliked: 

    Plots close together- we had awnings facing us from both sides, wouldn’t have been much room if we’d put ours up. Not many toilets and showers for size of site.

    The view and setting of site

    Disliked: 

    Chaotic, Motorhome parked everywhere. No system. Only a few toilets, but they were clean. Far too few facilities for the number of people they allow in. Far far to many vans to be safe.

On the A7 towards Hannover-Hamburg, take the exit signposted Maschener Kreuz and continue to Winsen/Lüneburg on the A39. Continue on the B404 and come off at Geesthacht.

Local attractions

Swimming, watersports, fishing and cycling along the riverbanks are all popular picks nearby, as is pottering about the small towns and traditional villages of the region. The holiday park was named as a bike-friendly site by the General German Cycling Club (ADFC): hire your wheels on site to venture forth and explore.

Over 20 varieties of fish live in the River Elbe for fisherfolk to land – eel, perch, pike, bream, gudgeon, silver bream, zander and burbot all have their home here. Buy a fishing permit on site if you fancy trying your angling luck; you can buy fishing kit too if you need it, and the staff will freeze your catch for you if needed (or you can fry it up fresh at one of the barbecue areas on the banks of the river).

Brush up on your local history and culture at the East Prussia Regional Museum (half an hour's drive away), full of artistic pieces, multimedia displays and kid-friendly interactive exhibits that tell the story of the area.

And then – time for at least a couple of days in spectacular Hamburg, connected to the North Sea by the Elbe. This lively place is crisscrossed by hundreds of canals with vibrant green areas, shops and restaurants: also make time for a visit to the famed fish market and a stroll around the biggest harbour in Germany.
