Jungfrau

We have a longer than normal holiday planned in the summer 4-6 weeks rather than the normal three.

Was thinking about a week in Switzerland at Jungfrau from 3-10 August.

The price of the pitch seems reasonable bit the want a wacking £30/day for the EHU.

Now we were in Switzerland a few year ago and it was never that bad.

I know Switzerland is expensive but thats beyond the pale

£30 for EHU? Are you sure thats not just a deposit for the adaptor (Swiss have different connections to the rest of Europe)?

There is a nice little campsite right at the top of the Jungfrau valley called Camping Rutti which we used and according to the site EHU is 3 CHF.

It will be out of ACSI season but from memory as we crossed over to just being out of ACSI it wasnt that much more expensive. Loved that area. Just stunning.

Another decent site called ďLazy RanchoĒ just outside Interlaken Itís on the bus route into town. Stayed there a few years ago.

In August itís ESSENTIAL to book though!

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

I just doubled checked it for seven nights they want 166 CHF which I think is great value for a Standard Pitch Campervan but when you add the EHU which is charged at 31.50CHF per day takes the total foR electric to 177.10 CHF plus 5CHF booking fee giving a total of 336.10CHF for the seven nights

Think I will give it a miss

Thats crackers. Which site is it? Do you have a link.

Its Mid summer so do you need EHU? I take it you dont have solar? Worth fitting if you dont. You could almost fit a panel for what their hookup would cost you for a week.

It would appear to me that the charges are just 31.50 for the week. Ive took a couple of screen shots. I think the first one which has no EHU is just 31.50 less than if you add the EHU

It looks like the price breakdown is 161.00 for the emplacement (your van on the pitch) for the week then the extras are two adults at 69.30 each for the week and then you add your EHU (For the week) at 31.50.

Without EHU



With EHU




Its a bit difficult to work out but I think that is what is happening.

As for it being scorching hot I think that must have been unusual and certainly if it was hot at night. I presume you have air con. Anyway I think hopefully thats correct. Check out Camping Rutti though as an alternative. I dont normally like campsites but that place was ok. There are a couple up that road up the Jungfrau valley.

The electric is only £25 a day!
There are too many Camping Jungfrau's best to choose another one?
