united states of america to wolfsburg /

vereinigte staaten von amerika nach wolfsburg

after years of traveling to the lake for “usa to wörthersee”, in 2024 we will continue our international journeys from the usa to germany, with stops are major automotive locations across the country, finishing at the the gti coming home event in wolfsburg.

we’ll visit factories (volkswagen, liqui moly, hengst filtration), factory museums (audi, bmw, porsche, volkswagen), car shows (gti coming home, tief im wald), and race tracks (we’ll drive the nürburgring, and watch pro racing at hockenheimring).

you can buy a used car in europe and bring is back to the usa or canada afterwards – it’s got to be 25+ years old for usa – , or you can rent / borrow a car, or ask if there’s a passenger seat available.

dates and stops are shown below, but are subject to confirmation and change. you are welcome to join and leave the group itinerary as you wish. we’ll share our hotel list so you can book your own rooms with us or nearby.
