Hello VW Fans.

I visited the 33rd MaiKäferTreffen on Sunday the 1th May 2016 in Hannover Germany. It was sunny and it was great!

I arrived with my 59 VW Beetle at 7:45 a.m. and was within 10 minutes at the car park. It was cold but the sun was already shining.

I first talked with the driver of a cool yellow ADAC STRASSENWACHT VW 1300 who just arrived when I started my way around. He had his morning cigarette while he showed me the features of the car. It is fully loaded with useful accessories. Well done!

Then I had a look at the camping area were many VW fans still had rested their hangover in a Camper Van or tent.

After that I enjoyed the quite morning with less visitors at the show car area. The light was excellent and I could take some good pictures of the air-cooled VW lines.

I went back to the car park were still thousands of VW fans arrived. I was there till about 11:30 a.m. including a nice break because I was already tired.

Then I bought some parts, visited friends and had a look at the Show and Shine presentation which is always fun to listen a bit.

Below about 120 pictures of the VW MaiKaeferTreffen meeting 2016
