Participatory tourism at Camping au Clos de la Chaume
We are delighted to be able to offer 2 main participatory tourism activities at the campsite, where we can share our passion for our region with you.
Come and taste the region’s Alsace wine every Wednesday during July and August. The wine comes directly from the Meyer-Krumb family business which has passed from father to son and daughter! It is much more than just a tasting session, as Aurélie will tell you all about her love for the region and give you some great ideas for food to accompany the wine. Pascaline will also be there to help Aurélie during this very pleasant evening event.
‘Surrounded by stars! ‘. The campsite is the perfect place for looking at the stars. From mid-July to mid-August, you can come and spend one evening a week looking up at the stars with our mountain guide and Pascaline or Mike!
