Wörthersee 2018

The lake has called – already for the 37th time. This year, from 9 until 12 May, Wörthersee Lake has played host to droves of tuning enthusiasts and GTI fans for the thirty-seventh time. Car lovers from all over the world were invited to attend the event being held under the slogan “Passion.Family.Friends”, with one activity taking precedence over all others: seeing and being seen, of course. This year, we at Volkswagen R presented our R models on an exclusive 130 m2 area directly by the lake. We also had a DJ at our stand every evening, who entertained guests with music as the sun goes down. Visitors also had the opportunity this year to purchase items from the current Volkswagen Lifestyle collection in the shop on site.

As part of this GTI meet, US influencer Jamie Orr has organised a tour for Volkswagen enthusiasts for the third year in a row. Under the banner “*USA to Wörthersee*”, the 18-strong group of fans travelled through Europe, and even stopped off at Volkswagen R in Warmenau on Friday, 4 May. The patchwork troop of enthusiasts from the USA, South Africa, Sweden, and Belgium got to know the company and had the opportunity to chat with employees at the workshop before tucking in to a Volkswagen currywurst, as befits such a visit. The tour then took an exciting turn when Jamie’s modified Citi Golf broke down shortly before the group’s departure, requiring some time on the lifting platform. Check out the photos here:
