Hey there!

Would you please advice me on that place? I coincidentaly drive through the same place on my way to croatia this monday and me and my friends would like to stop by and spend a quiet night maybe somewhere high on a moutain with a view where you can get by a car outside of any civilization and danger that we might get cought having a decent safe campfire to prepare sausages so not in a forest. Also we'll base one tent. Please, is there any other law or rule we should be aware of? Also I don't want to incidentaly do it in national park or something like that.

Thank you so much!!

Where exactly do you plan to camp? As you said yourself, you wouldn't want to do it in a national park unless you really want to get a high fine. There are some "official" camping places in national parks, though.
As for "laws or rules", I believe everyting has already been said here - where it is allowed and where it isn't, and that making open fire is generally forbidden but at many places not a big deal - just use your common sense and use this information at your own risk.

Yeah, cheers. Well where to camp was basicly the question. But after a little search on google maps I might try it north to Hartberg. Somewhere on the field off the people side. Don't know the place, can't tell. And yes I believe I know all the important information just not sure where it is nice and off the people and road and mentioned what it is supposed to look like.
Thanks
