The park has asked us to make sure everyone packs up and leaves immediately after the show is over. This has become a problem the last few years and has jeopardized our club to continue to have the show at the park.

June 14, 2018 - June 17, 2018 - 2 Int.VW-Vintage Black Forrest
77709 Wolfach, Germany
Facebook Twitter

Dear Vintage Volkswagen friends,

The first international Vintage Volkswagen Event took place already several years ago, but stayed - despite of the bad weather - in good memories.

Receiving a lot of positive feedback led easily to the decision, to invite you again to our beautiful home town.

Together with the city of Wolfach and the local associations, we will organize some beautiful hours with nice entertainment and hospitably service and catering.

Especially for this event, the inner city of Wolfach will be closed for all the traffic, to provide enough parking facilities for your vehicles.

So our little town will become one big automobile exhibition, that offers all visitors a sense of travelling back in history.

We will offer the following:

• Presentation of the "Schwimmwagen"

under optimum conditions, the owners of the "Schwimmwagen" do have the possibility to water their vehicles

• Big original parts market

for sure you will find something there or you have the opportunity to have good conversations at the booths

• separated camping area

for all guests, that arrive with a tent or directly with their "rolling" vehicle

• Program for young and old

From a folkloric evening to the SWR Dance Night 1960 - 2018- we offer something for everyone.

All the program details you can find on the homepage. We will update them in the next months.

In Wolfach as well as in the local area, you can find numerous beautiful popular destinations, that invite you to visit our homeland again.

As we already had that many participants in 2010, we strongly recommend to register for your participation as soon as possible.

We are looking forward to seeing you!

Best regards from the Black Forest,
Andreas Grabsch with the complete organization team
