Camping Olympia - Oly
A very special family member

Do you know how the squirrel “Oly” became our mascot? When we were looking for a symbol for our campsite, a real life squirrel darted in through the patio door during a meeting, stole a chocolate bar and then disappeared again. Of course we couldn’t ignore this original way of applying for the job.

Since then, this sweet little animal has been our mascot. Well, there could hardly be a more suitable “heraldic animal” for a campsite on the edge of the forest.

Hospitality makes history

It was back in 1954 when Alfons Klettenhammer had the idea of setting up a campsite here in Dobbiaco in Alta Pusteria. An extraordinary business idea for that time!

It is not surprising that the people of Dobbiaco were quite sceptical when the family business “Camping Olympia” initially started with only seven pitches. But what many dismissed as a “crazy idea” proved its worth over the decades. The name “Camping Olympia” was based on the VII. Winter Olympics in 1956 in nearby Cortina and contributed to making the business a real asset for Dobbiaco and its visitors.

The campsite in Dobbiaco grew steadily and became famous far beyond the borders of South Tyrol and Italy. Today it attracts guests from various European countries and all over the world.

This success is not only due to the courage of the family, but above all to the trust of the guests who have been spending their holidays with us at Camping Olympia for many decades.
