Kräwinkel holiday park is located within walking distance of the Wupper Reservoir, in the middle of the Bergisches Land, and belongs to the small township of Radevormwald. Kräwinkel is our second holiday park in the Bergisches Land, in addition to Hof Kleinbalken. The region is characterised by low mountain ranges full of lush forest, sweeping meadows and idyllic valleys with bubbling streams. Dotting this picturesque landscape are numerous lakes and reservoirs. Also typical of the region are charming villages with half-timber houses and slate façades. Served in cosy restaurants, inns and beer gardens, the local cuisine features hearty and savoury dishes as well as the famous “Bergische Kaffeetafel” (coffee and snacks).
Kräwinkel Park is just a hop, skip and a jump from the big cities on the Rhine and Ruhr rivers. The Bergisches Land boasts a plethora of leisure and recreation attractions, making it one of the most attractive destinations for holidaymakers and travellers in North Rhine-Westphalia. Conveniently accessible from the A1 or A45 motorway and nestled among rolling hills, Kräwinkel is located right on the Wupper Reservoir. This sprawling lake is an excellent place to go swimming, fishing or even paddle boating. Hide away in one of the many little coves of the reservoir to enjoy some uninterrupted peace and quiet. Or head out for a hiking or cycling tour into the expansive forest, and keep an eye out for local wildlife. With plenty of recreational attractions nearby, this park is great for anything from a weekend getaway to a long holiday stay.
Most of Kräwinkel holiday park is reserved for permanent campers, all of whom enjoy access to electricity, water and waste water connections. The individual pitches are separated by shrubs and bushes, providing each plot with a good deal of privacy. These natural partitions also serve to ensure that each property offers both sun and shade. For short-term visitors, there are 10 camping pitches with electricity, separate from the permanent camper area.
And, of course, dogs are welcome at the park. Gas canisters can be purchased at the park. Just next to the park is a popular restaurant destination. It offers a tempting weekly menu served in a fine-dining atmosphere, plus a cosy beer garden and a variety of seasonal events.
Activities at the park
As soon as you enter, you’ll find yourself at the start of a wide network of cycling paths that takes you along old railway tracks. Follow one of these cycling and hiking paths, and you’ll eventually arrive at the beautiful centre of Radevormwald. There, you’ll find lots of cute little shops and restaurants and, of course, the charming slate-clad houses typical of the region. For avid hikers, the Bergisches Land offers practically endless possibilities. There are hiking paths of every kind – almost too many to count. Start right from the park entrance if you like, and you’ll discover many lovely routes with not a single road to cross. For swimming and water sports, head to the Wupper Reservoir. Just 250 metres from the park is a swimming lake with sunbathing area. And if you like fishing, you’re in for a treat, as well. Fishing permits for the Wupper Reservoir are available about 250 metres away, just at the water’s edge. The Wupper is large enough that you’re pretty much always guaranteed to find a quiet spot.
