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, 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 both the 2020 and 2021 trips were interrupted by the global COVID-19 pandemic, we’re now preparing for our fifth anniversary trip in 2022, which after careful consideration, will not be open to the public unfortunately. The ongoing uncertainty of entry requirements combined with the cancellation of the official 2022 GTI Treffen in Worthersee, we’re going back to the roots and keeping the trip group small, but we hope to be back fully in 2023 for everyone!
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.
