Public vote: These are Europe's most popular campsites
On the basis of ratings by campers www.camping.info, one of Europe's top camping guides, has selected the most popular from over 23,000 campsites in 44 European countries.
The top campsites in Europe
Europe's top campsite is located in Austria. This is the result of the Camping.Info Award 2017 organised by www.camping.info, one of Europe's leading camping guides. Out of more than 23,000 European campsites from 44 countries top ranking went to Camping Grubhof (Austria, www.grubhof.com), followed by Camping Marina di Venezia (Italy, www.marinadivenezia.it) and Komfortcamping Schlosshof (Italy, www.schlosshof.it).
The Camping.Info Award is among the most highly coveted awards on the European camping scene. The awards are based on the satisfaction ratings of 58,139 registered campers, who posted a total of 112,591 ratings on Camping.Info. "The rankings are based exclusively on the ratings provided by campers. Accordingly the Camping.Info Award is an honour awarded purely by the public, in which only customer satisfaction counts", states Erwin Oberascher, founder and managing director of Camping.Info. "This means that even small, highly committed campsites have a good chance of being listed among the Top 100 in Europe and of being discovered as an insider tip." Mr. Oberascher is proud of the specially designed formula for the calculation, which above all takes into account the reliability of the person providing the rating, thus preventing manipulation. Further factors which influence the final results are the number of ratings and how up to date they are.
The best campsites from 10 further countries
In addition 10 more campsites are honoured. These are in each case the top campsite from 10 countries which would otherwise not appear in the Top 100 rankings. For 2017 this provides a prizewinner from Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Denmark, Greece, Poland, Portugal, Sweden, Spain, the Czech Republic and Hungary.
How the rankings were created
No 'black box', no jury and no margin for discretion!
The placings were awarded by calculating a total score based on....
- the average overall impression
- the average overall impression weighted in terms of voter reliability
- the average overall impression weighted by how recent the rating is
- the fourth root provided by the total number of ratings
The fourth root is calculated so that none of the influencing factors receives a disproportionate weighting. For example, whether a campsite has 50 or 100 ratings can make a relatively big difference, but whether it has 400 or 500 ratings does not play such a big role. Accordingly the fourth root levels out any distorting effects. In order to be considered in the rankings a campsite has to be rated by at least 25 guests.
