Netherlands VW Shows?

Post by 66mango »

I am hoping to get over to the Netherlands sometime this summer, not sure when yet, but will be going to Utrecht to visit friends.
I was wondering if anyone had ever been to any VW shows over there or if anyone knew which are the bigger/better ones to go to?? :D

Cheers,
Steve

Totaly depends on your personal preferance.

There are smaller aircooled only meetings, often more family oriented. There are water- & aircooled mixed meetings.
Budel, as Mike said, is the biggest aircooled in the Netherlands. Expect approx. 100 - 150 splitbusses in a total of 3000 - 3500 aircooled cars.

Have a look on www.vwshows.com in advance of booking so you know what / where to expect.
