14 – 16 June: 10th Travel Event at Touratech Headquarters


It’s a fixed date in many motorbike travellers’ calendars: Touratech’s Travel Event. This year, it will be hosted for the 10th time at the Touratech headquarters in Niedereschach from the 14th to the 16th of June. According to this occasion, the event will come up with about 50 exhibitors, interesting travel lectures and a diversified programme with many surprises included. At the same time, the BMW Motorrad GS Trophy Germany 2013 (formerly known as GS Challenge) will be taking place.



After the first two Travel Events in Touratech’s history had taken place in the South of France in 2001 and 2003, we are now celebrating a little anniversary: The 10th Travel Event in Niedereschach. The presentation of Touratech’s new movie “Madagascar Diaries” by Herbert and Ramona Schwarz on Friday, 14th of June, is going to be one of the highlights, as well as Joe Pichler’s brand new film and slide show “300,000 Kilometres of Pure Adventure” on Saturday evening. Here, the Austrian gives a very personal summary; it is much more than a “best of” of his adventurous life.

In addition to exciting lectures and interesting workshops, there will be various opportunities for test rides with new motorbike models, facility tours, and several stage presentations. Furthermore, the Touratech World and a newly designed BMW Area are waiting for their guests. Delicious food and drinks at fair prices as well as the popular seconds sale on Saturday and Sunday are something to look forward to. Numerous exhibitors will present interesting novelties concerning motorbikes and travelling. KTM, Triumph, Ducati and Metzeler will show up with their big trucks.

After last year’s rush of visitors, not only the exhibition site but also the catering area will be much bigger. For the first time, we will offer - beside the usual food stands - barbeque delicacies from the smoker grill, as well as “Dinnede”, an old Swabian specialty. The forest kindergarten “Wurzelzwerge” will be responsible for delicious cakes and a professional care for the youngest guests.

Furthermore, there’s an opportunity for the Travel Event visitors to experience the BMW Motorrad GS Trophy Germany 2013 at first hand, for example a special test on Touratech’s site as well as the spectacular final on Saturday, 15th of June, starting from 6 pm. There, the best GS riders will fight for the coveted starting positions in the international GS Trophy 2014. At the same time, the members of the “TrophyTeam Alps”, featuring the best GS riders from Austria and Switzerland, will be determined.

For the first time, there will be visitor stations at the BMW Motorrad GS Trophy Germany 2013. Here, motorbike-riding guests will have the opportunity to prove their skills. As a special service during the Travel Event, guided ride outs to well-chosen Trophy tests will be offered on Friday and Saturday where participants will experience our tour guides’ favourite routes. It’s a great inside scoop on the Black Forest - also beyond the asphalted roads! Another treat are the test rides with the new BMW R 1200 GS, offered by the Enduro-Park Hechlingen.
