Martha Kneisl was six years old when she entertained guests for the first time. As a toddler, she darted across her father's meadow and ran errands for vacationers. Long before the term camping became socially acceptable, guests set up their tents where today "Camping Sölden" accommodates vacationers. That was never planned. In the years when the border pass between Italy and Austria was opened and the Timmelsjoch High Alpine Road was built, soldiers came to Sölden. "That was in 1962," remembers Martha's son Lukas Kneisl, who runs the campsite today. "My grandfather Alois let his meadow to soldiers who were stationed as border guards at Timmelsjoch." A little later, a Dutch guest came to Sölden, saw the tents - and asked if he can also stay at the campsite. "That gave my family the idea of building a campsite."
What began improvised and with a spartan sanitary building is now a spacious area with a large wellness area. The special highlight is the location right in the heart of Sölden and yet close to nature on the banks of Ötztaler Ache brook where its murmuring always accompanies camping guests. The water and the surrounding peaks can be seen from every pitch: the campsite is terraced, the different heights allow for both the great panorama and the retreat area. Be it walking, hiking, cycling, biking or skiing: from the pitch it is only a few steps towards sports, action, nature and mountains.
