Parkn'Sleep - a tourism concept

Due to a lack of facilities, campers are increasingly spending the night in the wild or semi-legally, which is understandably causing resentment among authorities and municipalities. As a result, camping bans have been imposed in many places. Parkn'Sleep has responded to the growing demand and the problem in tourist regions and launched a clever solution at the beginning of June 2021. Parkn'Sleep displays official pitches with live availability. Each pitch is legal, verified and linked to local regulations and tariffs. Providers can enter their pitch offers in the system with just a few clicks and generate income. Campers can drive to the pitches spontaneously, check in and out digitally on site and spend a quiet and undisturbed night.

"We see the tense situation in motorhome tourism as an opportunity to bring pitch operators, campers and municipalities together with Parkn'Sleep," says Lukas Imhof, founder of Parkn'Sleep.
