A retrospect: The 7th international Vintage Volkswagen Show in Hessisch Oldendorf took place from Friday, June 23rd until Sunday, June 25th 2017. Alongside the atmosphere of the town of Hessisch Oldendorf with its timber-framed facades and the (nearly) traditional program like the evening events in downtown and the city hall, the 3-day swap market in rustic timbered atmosphere, an amphibious vehicle tour and the tourist tour, we offered a separate camping area for show participants and visitors with younger vehicles - virtually a huge aircooled show within the show. With over 900 registered vehicles, hundreds of aircooled visitors vehicles, 45.000 visitors and over 1500 participants from 32 nations it was the world's largest vintage VW show. Approximately 30 people volunteered a team led by Traugott and Christian Grundmann. They were more than 10 days on site to make this show happen after a preparation period of almost 2 years.

The scheduled number of participants is reached for the time being. We still plan a late entry for 1 February 2021. Then the registration page will we reopened again for a short time. We expect about 50 additional available registrations.
