Camping Sölden - then & now

The history of Camping Sölden

Passionate hosts for more than 55 years

The first campers

It all began in 1961, when soldiers came to Sölden with camping equipment for the first time and were stationed there as border guards. A Dutch guest became aware of the campers and asked Anton Gstrein to be allowed to stay there too. In response to this request, the idea of ​​building a campsite came up. Afterwards, a spartan sanitary building was erected on the undivided and hilly site.
