Hello VW Fans.

I visited the 7th International Vintage VW Show in Hessisch Oldendorf on Saturday the 24th June 2017. It was a dream!

I drove with my 69 Bug from Bremen to Hessisch Oldendorf and arrived at the camping area at 5:45 early in the morning. At that time I could listen to birds and snoring VW fans in tents and camper vans. It was very peaceful. While I was taking some pictures at the campground, I saw one more VW fan checking out the rare. It was my friend Maik, who addicted me to vintage VWs 24 years ago. Below a picture of him with his awesome Double Cab Fire Split Bus.

At around 7:00 more and more VW fans got up and the moving to Hessisch Oldendorf city started. I arrived at the Hessich Oldendorf Marktplatz at 7:15 and till 9:45 is was very pleasant.

I saw many VW Split and Oval Beetles, Westy and Barndoor Splits, Karmann Ghias, Hebmüller, Rometsch Beeskow, Dannenhauer & Stauss, Schwimmwagen Typ 166, 356a and nice prototypes from The Autostadt Museum.

After lunch I had a look at the Volkswagen parts for sale and for sure this is the best show to get the rare.

I was at the Großenwieden Weser River ferry at 14:30. The tourist drive through the Weserbergland ends / starts here and also the Schwimmwagen run ends here. This was very good entertainment. To see the VW fans crossing the river from both sides with the ferry is just great. At 15:20 the show at the Ferry crossing had its peak, as plenty of Schwimmwagen arrived. Later the Schwimmwagen owner did some swimming with visitors. Well done.

I was also 2013 in Hessisch Oldendorf and again it was so good. The Hessisch Oldendorf city was decorated very well with VW items. In the church were two rare VW beetle floor pans placed and it was amazing to see how many international visitors came.

The Hessisch Oldendorf VW team did a great job and for sure I'll be back. This was VW heaven as its best.

Below a selection of 273 great pictures of the vintage VW Show in Hessisch Oldendorf 2017 in order as taken.
