Book your next holiday!

Welcome to the Uhlenköper Camp and Hotel 11 Owls in Uelzen-Westerweyhe.

Eco-camping at its best: organic food, organic rolls, organic beer … at the small Uhlenköper camp on the edge of the heathland town of Uelzen, everyone will find their favourite spot: cosy and comfortable for a longer stay, practical and easy for a flying visit by bike or camper van.

While the grown-ups enjoy a coffee on the sunny terrace, the children romp in the swimming pool, on the playground or by the little stream.

The little ones also have great fun getting to know nature and the animals on the site. Washing machine and dryer for “afterwards” are available in the well-maintained sanitary area.

The Uhlenköper camp is an ideal starting point for canoeing, cycling tours and excursions into the surrounding countryside – and a welcome destination after an eventful day.

We don’t rest on our laurels – we always have an open ear for your wishes. Enjoy relaxed and varied days with us in a family atmosphere – we look forward to seeing you!

 Your families Körding & Paul
