From the USA, drive across Germany and Austria in your own car to the GTI Treffen in Wörthersee! With Jamie Orr from Orchid Euro handling the logistics, for 2021 we will be offering even more ways to enjoy this amazing experience, including the options to make stops at world class factories and auto museums, all with private tours, and of course… you have the chance to drive your own car on the Nürburgring!
You have the option of taking your own North American car for the trip, with exclusive return shipping aboard the Volkswagen Group’s new vehicle shipping vessels, with all Customs processing included. After the 2020 trip was interrupted by the global COVID-19 pandemic, we’re now preparing for our fifth anniversary trip in 2020!
2021 will also be the 40th Anniversary of the GTI Treffen, and the 25th anniversary of Performance Volkswagen Magazine, who has published our trips since we started. So this will be a year to make sure you’re at Lake Wörthersee…!
For 2019, we went all in! Volkswagen of American joined with a brand new VW GTI Rabbit Edition, and new VW Atlas R-Line, and we shipped cars from Canada, Mexico, and the USA, to join us on stage at the North American booth on the GTI Treffen stage! We also had exclusive tours at VW Zubehor’s headquarters, the Wolfsburg Factory, and we witnessed the Volkswagen ID.R. set its Nurburgring track record from the start/finish line. It was almost unbelievable!
In 2017 we went back with a whole new group of cars and friends, and were given our own display area on the main VW stage in Wörthersee.
In 2016 we started off with a big experience and took one 1996 VW Golf Harlequin from Pennsylvania to Austria, via Germany and the Netherlands.
