Hotel and ferry are booked! At the end of May, the Saab Festival in Trollhättan. From Frankfurt to Kiel, where on Thursday afternoon Saab Service Kiel the fans meet. Then in the direction of Schwedenkai, the ferry to Gothenburg and on Friday morning together via the newly extended E45 to Trollhättan.
So far, fans from the Rhine-Main region, from Saxony, southern Bavaria, the surrounding area of Hamburg and from other parts of the Republic have announced that they will spend a weekend in Saab City. There are many Saab drivers who have never been to Sweden before and will visit Trollhättan for the first time.
There are signs of strong participation from Germany, and I think there is no better way to experience Saab than at this place in Västra Götland. The whole city full of Saab, turbo sound and two-stroke chatter on every corner and a Saab density that we can otherwise only dream of. Where else is there a chance to see a Saabo or a Sonnet I? Or the chance to talk to Erik Carlsson? In 2010 Marco and I were at the festival in Trollhättan for the first time, and it was also the spiritual hour of birth for Saabblog.net. If I had known what that would entail ... hmm. But that's another topic! For many reasons we would not have thought that we would be there again three years later, so it is all the better that a new Saab event is taking place in Sweden.
If you are thinking of going to Trollhättan, you should book soon. The ferry contingents are limited in the summer months, hotel rooms in Trollhättan are in short supply. From the Saab Festival 2010 I put together some impressions for the undecided. Well worth the drive, Trollhättan is a charming place and the best place in the world to be Saab fan. And yes, it does not always rain in Trollhättan. Here are the pictures ;-).
