It seems just a few months ago that we visited our friends in Schotland for the 2017 International VW Beetle and Karmann Ghia cabrio meeting. We all remember it as an unforgettable trip, filled with unique sceneries, beautiful landmarks and ofcourse the ancient tradition of the Scottish Kilt…
In 2018, Belgium again hosts the International Meeting, also known as “CabriOpen 2018″. It is our pleasure to invite you, from Friday, August 17 until Sunday, Augst 19, to the beautiful city of Reims, in France. We will stay at the 4-star hotel “Best Western Plus Hôtel de la Paix” in the heart of this beautiful and historic city. Also for our cherished oldtimers we reserved a safe, underground parking for the full duration of the weekend.
Being in the champageregion, you will probably expect to be welcomed with a glass champagne…? You won’t be disappointed! For the people that arrive early on Friday, or even earlier, the city of Reims has lots of things to visit, not in the least the grand Cathedral, within walking distance of the hotel.
When everyone has arrived, we officially welcome you all and open the meeting with a wonderful ‘buffet’. You well get the chance to meet your old international friends again, or make new ones… The bar will stay open all night for those with lots of friends…
Saturday is ‘champage-day’ again, as we drive through the champage vineyards in the Reims and Epernay region. Collect your lunchbag and start your day. The region is really beautiful to drive through, and obviously we plan a guided visit to a major champagne castle in the region, no doubt we will get the chance to taste some.
On Saturday night we invite you to “Salons Degermann”, right next to the hotel, for a fine evening with diner and dancing. This building, dated 1900, with its magnificent interior invites us to enjoy a lovely night in evening attire.
On Sunday we have a small roadtrip planned for you, taking us to the ‘goodbye’ location around noon. We will send you on your way with a lunchbag for the long drive home. Or you can stay in Reims a bit longer, book a few extra days in the hotel at CabriOpen prices.
We would love to submerge you in that typical French athmosphere, hopefully with a little bit of French sunshine as well. In any case we will do everything in our power to make this a wonderfull weekend for you and your family, according to… Belgian tradition!
