There is definitely no other place in the world where visitors can inform themselves in the same way as by attending the ABENTEUER & ALLRAD says Marion Ripberger, managing director of the organizing company pro-log GmbH.
Held in a small town called Bad Kissingen located just 150 km from Frankfurt in Germany and just approximately a two hour drive from the Czechoslovakian border is the annual Abenteuer & Allrad 4WD and Camping show the largest of its kind in the world. This is a very central location for overlanders to visit this well established event from all over Europe.

One of the real highlights of the show is the campsite, in fact the campsite is pretty much a show all by itself. With over 6,000 people camped up with there vehicles, you could happily spend a couple of days just wandering around the campsite checking out the huge variety of overland vehicles and camp set ups without actually visiting the expo at all, it’s that impressive.
