Hello VW Fans.

I visited the Maikäfertreffen #34 in Hannover on Monday the 1th May 2017 with my 1969 VW Beetle.

My VW 1500 made the 250 kilometers from Bremen to Hannover and return successfully. I am used to 30 and 34 horsepower Beetles and my new VW 1500 with 44 horsepower is a fast Bug.

I arrived at 7:25 a.m. in Hannover and was parking within a short time. It was a nice sunny and fresh morning.

I checked out the show cars early in the morning which is very pleasant at this time, because many VW Fans have to go to the parts first.

More than 3500 air-cooled VWs made it to the famous Maikäfertreffen and it was really crowded around lunch time.

I bought a few parts after lunch and went home at 2:30 p.m.

It was great again. I saw thousands of air-cooled Volkswagen and I can recommend this VW meeting in Hannover Germany.

Below a selection of 130 pictures of the Maikäfertreffen 2017 VW meeting in order as taken.
