We as the team of Schau aufs Land are united by the passion for nature-oriented camping travel - but also by the desire to make our future more suitable for our grandchildren and to create more appreciation for sustainable agriculture.
For this reason we – Leonard, Karin & Christian as founding team – started our heart project Schau aufs Land in 2019. Since then we – together with our whole team now - to expand the platform and create more awareness and appreciation for sustainable travel & organic farming.
We want to bring more sustainability into camping travel and at the same time create more awareness of how valuable and important organic farming is for all of us.
This vision connects us and makes us so strong as a team. At a joint startup workshop in November 2019, Leonard, Karin & Christian got to know each other as a founding team and it was immediately clear to them: "We are a good fit" - we complement each other and have a common vision.
Since then we have been working with our team with motivation and all our heart on expanding Schau aufs Land.

We too want to take on responsibility!
To many, travelling means freedom, adventure and flexibility. To us, it means freedom, adventure, flexibility and responsibility.
Because travelling always has an impact on nature and us humans. We want to take responsibility for this impact and create added value – for us and the region we travel to.
Our actions are guided by the following five pillars:
Create awareness for the negative impacts our actions can have on nature and keep these to a minimum.
Travellers are guests and responsible for respecting the rules and customs of the place of destination.
Added value for all people involved – Give and Take should be balanced.
Be open for encounters with people and nature.
Get to know the country and people with their real character and no need to put on a facade yourself either.
