It’s that time again, the call sounds! Loud shouts chime through the Vintage Volkswagen community, sharp remarkable e-mails roll full speed on the screens! The message is ‘out’! Bad Camberg 2011 goes on! Please note 24-26th of June 2011 already in your agendas!
It’s been more than 3 and a half years already, incredible how time flies! For us, completely addicted to the real old VW’s, it’s impossible to resist the call of the most famous Vintage Volkswagen meeting in the world. All the places are already reserved since a long time, each hotel in Bad Camberg is booked up, and the meeting itself is already fully booked since a couple of months. Nevertheless we are still receiving requests from oversee to drive with us, and though there is not enough place for all of them on the ‘court’, there is enough space around the place for hundreds of VW’s… Several Americans, Japanese and Indonesians ship their own cars over to Europe, some of them come to Belgium to join the biggest Vintage convoy ever, others go straight to Germany… all those people take the trouble to bear these costs, and to spend their time in the organization and travelling time. Compared to this it’s easy for us Belgians! We just cross the border and there we are at the only real top level meeting regarding the earliest of our dearest insects… Even if the hotels in Bad Camberg are fully booked, there are still hotels in the neighborhood with enough capacity, the internet can help you to find a hotel room or a camping of your choice…
The Lottermann family will, as organizer, certainly do their utmost, they expect thousands of visitors from the entire world! More information on:
Once more, BBT organises the famous convoy from the BBT headquarters in Sint-Job-in-‘t-Goor (just North of Antwerp) to Bad Camberg. On Thursday eve from 15 p.m. till 21 p.m., there is a huge open house with snacks and drinks at very democratic prices. You will also have the possibility to visit the brand new BBT mega hall with plenty of cars, goodies and other sweets… Discover the fastest processing and most automated warehouse for Classic Volkswagen parts on the globe!
After Friday morning’s breakfast, we leave at 9 a.m. with the entire convoy direction highway. Somewhat different than other years, there will be some big surprises waiting for us in Germany! For those people, who cannot attend the show during the weekend, a visit to BBT on Thursday eve or Friday morning is an absolute must. You rarely get to see that many Vintage Volkswagens at the same place in Belgium. Since the convoy is in cooperation with several Clubs from abroad, there will be a great numbers of cars from foreign countries which will be staying overnight at BBT or a hotel/camping in the neighborhood… for the ‘Die-Hard’ there is even a limited camping area foreseen on the BBT premises!
Be there and be part of it!
