public transport around the ION CLUB

...is not really good.

  • The is no public bus stopping close to the Camping.
  • We recommend to have a car on site.

    If you are staying at the Camping in highseason , then of course there is the Shop and various restaurants. You might discover the area by bike if you want to spend the holiday without a car. But you would miss many beautiful sites to visit, restaurants and discotheques to go to.
