Europe Book List

Camping travel in Europe (with a vehicle) gives you a big advantage, you can take along a few guidebooks and not have to carry them in a suitcase each time you move to a different hotel. Here are the ones we've found most useful.

 

 

Traveler's Guide to European Camping - Mike and Terri Church

This is our book. Of course we think it's the best book available in the U.S. about camping as you travel around Europe. Click on the book cover graphic for more information.

 

 

Europe By Van And Motorhome - David Shore and Patty Campbell

This book is a great introduction to the ins and outs of camping in Europe. Don't buy it if you don't want to get enthused. Note that it is not a campground guide.

 

 

Europe Through The Back Door 2007 - Rick Steves

Rick doesn't really consider himself a camping traveler, he's more into trains and tour busses, but his books make great guides for campers too. The best part of this book for us is the second half, 34 "back doors". These are destinations that are off the beaten tourist path, and we think it's more fun to visit them with a car and tent or RV than by train.

 

 

Europe 101: History and Art for the Traveler - Rick Steves and Gene Openshaw

Are you up to speed on your European history? If you aren't you can take this book along to help you appreciate what you see.

 

 

Mona Winks: Self Guided Tours of Europe's Top Museums - Rick Steves and Gene Openshaw

You'll probably visit a lot of museums in Europe, this book makes it more educational and a lot of fun.

 

 

Lonely Planet Western Europe

Lonely Planet does a great job on European guidebooks for budget travelers. This one covers Andorra, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, and Switzerland. There is also an Eastern Europe book as well as others covering individual countries and additional regions.
