This year there will be the OTTO show again. OTTO stands for Offroad and Tourism Days Ohrdruf. A small, very nice overlanding fair in great, scenic surroundings. It's a great place to meet and exchange ideas with some OverlandBound members.

Nice one. It is during our holiday. But if all goes well we will be in Portugal then.
If that is not an option, well we will see.

It really is a small, family fair. Rather meeting character I would say! Nice.

At the same location, by the way, the "Wie-Wild Camp" has opened again this year, so you will find a camp around the castle and pond. It is a beautiful, idyllic location. I have entered this here in the map. Take a look.

Yes, and it is centrally located, so that it is easily and quickly accessible for many. Would be supercool if we would meet with a few OB members there in the fall!

Who is planning to come to the OTTO show? I have registered and will be there Thursday through Sunday.

Tickets: Produkte – Offroad- & Touristik-Tage Ohrdruf

I will talk to the organizer and ask if we can please have a common OB spot in the camp if we come with several OB members. It would be great if you could tell me briefly if and when you are coming. That will help me to organize this better. Thank you!

Nice, if we are not going to Portugal, it could fit in our planning, but not at this moment as we have plans to go to Portugal that time of year.

I'm thinking about going Friday to Saturday or Saturday to Sunday, need to decide soon...
Great. Looking forward to a meeting.

By the way, the location of the show is not only centrally located in Germany, but is also easily accessible, for example via the nearby A4 and A71 freeways.

I will be in the area the week before the show because I am doing an event in the region. So, maybe 2 or 4 days prior to the OTTO show I will go for a short trip on some small roads in the area. Whoever wants to join me is very welcome. I will keep you posted and create a RP if I will do that.

There is a possibility for groups to have a common place in the camp. Please let me know if you bought the tickets in the store (order/ticket no., car registration number, name/ first name), then I will talk to the organizer and we can merge the bookings for the common place. Thank you!

Cheers, Björn

Just looked at the the tickets today, was slightly confused because they talked about things in the description that I could not find in the ticket shop. Unsure if I go 1 or 2 nights yet and that seems to be a different camp place for 1 night?

It's all in one place. For the show including the camp, the area around Ohrdruf Castle is used.

With the tickets it is very simple:
  • You first book a ticket for the vehicle. This is the basis, because the vehicle is decisive for the required camp pitch size. There are different pitch sizes to choose.
  • For each participant, except for the person already registered with the vehicle, there is a separate additional registration.
  • Each participant will receive after booking and payment a personal ticket, which is also valid as a registration form because of C19.
I ordered the tickets some days ago and it worked exactly like that. I will be there from October, 7 to 10.

Ticket is ordered Friday to Sunday... Hope I will make it Friday afternoon!
Great. Please, if you like to join the common OB place in Camp, name me order/ticket no., car registration number, name/ first name.

This is what the organizer needs from a group to set up a common place in the camp. Thanks. Of course, for this to happen, a few OB members will have to come, so we'll see.

That´s great! So I have the necessary from you and Mathias now. All others who would like to attend and camp in the common OB spot at the event, please do not forget to sent me order/ticket no., car registration number, name/ first name. Thanks. So I can liaise with the organisator to get a common spot for us.

I have now gathered the necessary information for the common pitch as far as I got it from you and sent it to the organizer. So in total four rigs. I look forward to seeing you all at the OTTO.
