Wide choice of accommodation including luxury spa lodges
As the 25th anniversary of the reunification of Germany approaches, it’s anticipated that the focus will be on the country including a drive in tourism.
Pitchup.com launched into Germany late last year and has already grown the product to feature 23 sites across the length and breadth of the country.
“Pitchup.com has seen phenomenal growth into Europe since first launching in France back in 2013. We now feature over 1,200 sites in 15 countries and it’s growing daily. Germany has grown particularly fast this year, with some really stylish sites coming on board,” commented Dan Yates from Pitchup.com.
Among the 23 sites available in Germany are the following.
