How it works:
With Schau aufs Land you can find over 1,000 spots close to nature for one night - directly with a total of 500 organic farms and other sustainable businesses in Austria & Slovenia.
With your membership you get access to the digital camping spot guide with all information, pictures & contact data. The pitches at our partner businesses are generally offered free of charge offered. In return, you say thank you with a purchase at the farm, by using their offers (e.g. herbal courses, lama hikes, etc.) or with a voluntary contribution for the hospitality.
The camping spots are simple pitches – but many businesses offer further infrastructure & services as well – voluntarily & for a small fee .
Our goal is to enable interactions between travellers & farmers based on mutual appreciation.
With your digital membership card you can stay for 24 hours at each of the businesses. You are asked to contact them at short notice 1–2 days prior to your desired arrival. Please note that a visit is only permitted after contacting your host in advance .
We wish you a great time with Schau aufs Land and hope you have many great experiences at our partner businesses.

Camping at (organic) farms

We are happy to count currently 450 partner businesses in Austria & 50 partner businesses in Slovenia, that comply with our list of criteria for sustainability and offer Schau aufs Land spots close to nature with us.
And every week there are more!
Why is Tyrol so empty?
In Tyrol Unfortunately, we do not have the strict camping law in the way and prohibits any camping outside official campsites - so unfortunately also with private individuals or farms. The only possibility is that the farm receives from its municipality a Exemption but this is unfortunately only very difficult to obtain.
This is how you can use Schau aufs Land:
Generally, our offer extends only to self-sufficient vehicles, but many of our partner businesses also offer voluntary services like toilets and showers. That way also travelers without toilets on board or people travelling with a tent can find pitches with us.
You can find all updated information here:
Please note that a small fee may be charged on site for the use of services and infrastructure. Please inquire this directly with your host at your arrival.
People travelling with a tent are welcome at more than half of the businesses.
More than every second business welcomes travelers without own toilet on board.
Most of the hosts are happy if you come to visit with your dog.
At nearly all the farms & vineyards you can also visit with your caravan.
Around 3/4 of the spots offer electricity at the pitch.
At nearly all the partner businesses you can refill your fresh water tank.
What does sustainable mean?
To us, sustainability means creating a future for our grandchildren. And in building a world for future generations, our partner businesses especially take care of animal welfare, of keeping their soils naturally alive & fertile and offer a living environment to insects and pollinators through rich biodiversity.
With Schau aufs Land you can get to know the people behind it.
In order to take part at Schau aufs Land our partner businesses must agree to our criteria for sustainable management. These include the following points:
- No use of chemical-synthetic pesticides & fertilizers
- Preferably closed nutrient cycles
- Real animal welfare (according to EU organic directives)
- Businesses in hospitality:
When buying foods offered they make sure it is organic, regional and seasonally produced.
Additionally, each business can shortly describe how and with which measures the topic of sustainability is integrated in their business.
Unfortunately we don't have the resources to act as supervisory body ourselves and check each business personally before publishing it. For this reason, we are grateful when travelers themselves are interested in the way of work of our partner businesses and the topic of sustainability and also ask critical questions concerning this. Many times this leads to interesting & enlightening conversations as well as new perspectives on the topics of agriculture & sustainability.
