Premium Wanderwelten

30. Mai 2017 – PremiumWanderWelten-Regionen verwöhnen Wanderer kulinarisch mit neuen Konzepten

Seit Anfang des Jahres können Wanderer in den PremiumWanderWelten die acht PremiumWanderregionen zunehmend kulinarisch erleben. Ob GenießerKisten, traditionelle Alpen oder die Traufgänge Gastgeber – zu einer Premium-Wanderung gehört auch der Genuss regionaler Spezialitäten. Statt mit geschlossenen Gastronomiebetrieben am Wegesrand punkten die PremiumWanderWelten mit neuen kulinarischen Konzepten: Zeitloser Genuss auf den Traumschleifen Spezialitäten rund um die Uhr ist das Motto auf den Traumschleifen.

Mit der Eröffnung der Versorgungsautomaten „GenießerKisten“ am 19. Mai 2017 bietet die Region Wanderern auf dem Saar-Hunsrück-Steig, dem Felsenweg, der Stausee Tafeltour, dem Zwei-Täler-Weg und dem Wehinger Viezpfad Produkte der Regionalinitiative „Ebbes von Hei!“ – neben Käse, Salami und Lyoner finden Wanderer hier auch Bier und Edelbrand von regionalen Erzeugern. Regionale Küche und höchste Gastfreundschaft bei den Traufgängen. Um zum richtigen Traufgänger zu werden, gehört seit Jahresanfang auch ein Besuch bei einem der sechs Traufgänge Gastgebern in Albstadt dazu. Als „Qualitätsgastgeber Wanderbares Deutschland“ und „Schmeck den Süden“ Betriebe bieten sie ausgezeichnete Qualität mit regionalen Produkten. Saisonale Themenwochen und das Traufgänge Spezial mit liebevoll kreierten Kompositionen aus albtypischen Spezialitäten ermöglichen Wanderern genussreiche Aufenthalte am Albtrauf.

Auf Schusters Rappen zur Hüttentour in Oberstaufen Im Allgäu heißen die Almen Alpen. Mehr als 150 gibt es davon in der Kur- und Ferienregion Oberstaufen – so viele wie nirgendwo sonst in Deutschland. Bei einer zünftigen Hütteneinkehr kommen Wanderer in den Genuss des Käses aus eigener Herstellung, selbst gebackenem Brot und allerlei Allgäuer Schmankerl. In Kombination mit der frischen Bergluft und dem Landschaftserlebnis der Voralpen runden sie so einen perfekten Wandertag ab.

Traditionelle Leckereien auf den Traumpfaden Freunde traditioneller Regionalküche dürfen sich auch im Rhein-Mosel-Eifel-Land freuen: Ein altes Eifeler Martinsessen – der Döppekooche – wird zu neuem Leben erweckt. Wanderer der Traumpfade Pyrmonter Felsensteig, Eltzer Burgpanorama, Hatzenporter Laysteig, Nette-Schieferpfad und der Booser Doppelmaartour (Restaurant „Löffel’s Landhaus“, „Zur Post“ und „Zur Quelle“) können den Topfkuchen traditionell mit Speck und Zwiebeln oder in neuen Varianten, wie mit Zimt und Äpfeln genießen.

Alpenländisches Flair hoch im Norden Die nördlichste Premiumwanderregion Deutschlands kann zwar nicht mit alpenländischen Gipfelhöhen aufwarten, dennoch kommen Fans bayerischer Lebensart auf den Teutoschleifen im Tecklenburger Land auf ihre Kosten. Mitten im Teutoburger Wald verströmen die urige Almhütte an den Dörenther Klippen, Malepartus am Holperdorper und edel & weiss in Tecklenburg bayrische Gemütlichkeit mit Brezeln, Weißwurst und Kaiserschmarren.

FOS – Drifting legends all set to slide up sideways

May 24th 2017
Following the huge response to the drift stars and their cars at last year’s Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard, more of these lively, smoky and smelly drifters will be returning to Goodwood from June 29th – July 2nd to thrill and delight the crowds once again, this time with a new twist.
On Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoons of the sell-out Festival our visiting drift legends will be judged by a combination of public voting and a speed trap on the first corner of Goodwood Hillclimb. From the start line cars will be expected to be travelling sideways by the time they reach the first initiation point, reaching maximum drifting speed through the speed trap and maintaining the drift until the finish line, no doubt with great plumes of tyre smoke.
Of the varied drifting machines to slide up famous Festival of Speed Hillclimb sideways to compete for the title of Goodwood Festival of Speed Drift Champion will be Vaughn Gittin Junior (JR), back by popular demand in his Ford Mustang RTR. 
‘Mad’ Mike Whiddett will be making his fourth appearance at the Festival in his rotary-engined Mazda MX-5 Miata, codenamed RADBUL, burning rubber along with Dean Kearney, 2009 Prodrift European Series Champion in his Dodge Viper and James Deane, Drift Allstars European Champion in 2014, 2015 and 2016, driving his Nissan Silvia.
Saturday and weekend tickets to the Festival of Speed are now sold-out, with Sunday tickets limited and Thursday and Friday tickets selling fast. Hospitality packages are available throughout the weekend. To buy tickets or enquire about hospitality visit http://www.goodwood.com or call the Goodwood Ticket Office on 01243 755 055.

UK car experts list five music festivals you definitely don’t want to drive to, based on eco-friendliness, consequences for impaired driving and public transit options

London, United Kingdom, 22/05/2017 – The festival season is upon us! The online used car dealership Carspring might be car fanatics, but they’ve got sense when it comes to having fun responsibly with this list of five festivals perfect for leaving the car at home. Logistics experts took into account alternate public transportation options, waiting times for drivers, eco-friendliness of the festival, and fines for driving under the influence.

The results offer a down to earth take on some of the world’s most celebrated festivals:

  1. Fusion Festival, Larz, GermanyFusion Festival is Germany’s techno paradise. Set up in a former military airport, it’s one of Europe’s counter cultural-events of the year. The ethos is to experience over its four to six days a different way of living. With avant-garde art, vegetarian food, and no pre-released setlist, you’re not encouraged to star hop. Instead, free your mind and let Fusion seep its magic through your synapses.
    The best way to get to Fusion Festival: BASSLINER bus

    With this in mind, it’d seem a bit pointless bothering with driving to Fusion. Especially with group train tickets on offer from Hamburg and Berlin. You can also catch the BASSLINER bus, which links the festival with dozens of German cities. 

    2. Boom Festival, Idanha-a-Nova, Portugal – Rocking up in a gas guzzler is no way to arrive at an eco-friendly festival. It might be in the middle of nowhere, but taking a Boom Bus from Switzerland, Belgium, Madrid, or Portugal is a much better way to get to Boom. As festival-goer Matthew Wisesays, “the bus is certainly the simplest and most hassle-free means of getting there.” Boom puts them on for good reason too. In 2016, 800 tonnes of CO2 were saved from people not using their cars. Alternatively, you could even cycle. In the past Boom Festival has allowed cyclists in for free. Plus, it’s well in-keeping with the festival’s eco-conscious mantra.

    And, you’re more likely to meet some cool new people if you travel by bus!

Brooklands revival at FOS

Goodwood Festival of Speed to celebrate 110-year legacy of iconic Brooklands motor circuit

To celebrate 110 years since the opening of Brooklands, the birthplace of British motorsport, the Goodwood Festival of Speed , which takes place from June 29th to July 2nd, will play host to an incredible array of cars and motorcycles from the Surrey circuit’s history.

The brainchild of Hugh Locke King, Brooklands was the world’s first purpose-built race circuit. From its opening in 1907 (the first competitive event was staged on June 28th-29th 1907 – 110 years to the day before the opening of this year’s Festival of Speed) until the outbreak of World War II, it hosted some of the sport’s most memorable characters. Assembled with the support of the Brooklands Museum, the Festival class will celebrate the diverse machinery that made Brooklands great.

Because Brooklands’ banking allowed sustained high speeds, it was the scene of many early Land Speed Record attempts, represented at FoS by cars like the Blitzen Benz, Fiat S76 and ‘Babs’. At the opposite end of the size spectrum are the tiny Austin and MG specials, and three-wheeler Morgans, which were a mainstay of club events, while the first British Grands Prix (held at Brooklands in 1926-27) are represented by a quartet of fabulous Delage 15 S8s. Pride of place goes to the Napier-Railton Special, in which John Cobb set the ultimate Brooklands lap record, at 143.44mph, in 1934. Together, they will be a fitting tribute to the pioneering spirit of Brooklands, the bravery of its drivers, and the creativity of its engineers.

With the outbreak of war in 1939, racing at Brooklands ceased, and the subsequent war effort had a permanent and devastating impact on the circuit – not least in the form of a runway that cut through the Byfleet banking. With the legendary Surrey track permanently out of action, the organisers of the pre-war races eagerly sought an alternative. Spitfire pilot Tony Gaze had already suggested to the president of the Junior Car Club, the Duke of Richmond (himself a successful racer at Brooklands, having won the 500 Mile race for Austin in 1930, and the Double Twelve for MG in 1931), that the perimeter track of the Goodwood airfield would make an ideal racing circuit. And so it was that in 1948 the baton of Britain’s motorsport legacy was passed to Goodwood with the inaugural JCC race meeting. The BARC merged with the JCC the following year, moved to Goodwood, and the rest, as they say, is history.

Saturday and weekend tickets to the Festival of Speed are now sold-out, with Sunday tickets limited and Thursday and Friday tickets selling fast.  Hospitality packages are available throughout the weekend. To buy tickets or enquire about hospitality visit www.goodwood.com or call the Goodwood Ticket Office on 01243 755 055.

Roberto Ravaglia and Gerhard Berger at the 75th Goodwood Members’ Meeting

Battle of to great racing stars: Roberto Ravaglia, one of the greatest touring car racers in the history of tin-top motorsport, will make his Goodwood Members’ Meeting debut on March 18-19, going wheel to wheel with Austrian Formula 1 hero, Gerhard Berger, in the Gerry Marshall Trophy.
The legendary Italian, who took two European Championship titles and lifted the inaugural World Touring Car crown with BMW in the 1980s, will tackle the two-driver, two-part event alongside James Vickers in a Belga-liveried 3-litre Ford Capri, a car with superb history.
Commissioned by 1978 Spa 24 Hours winner Gordon Spice for the ’79 Belgian classic, chassis CC13 was built by Dave Cook and Peter Clark of CC Racing and was immediately a front-runner. Spice’s team-mate Alain Semoulin ‘got involved in someone else’s accident’, which dropped the car down the order while repairs were effected. An epic charge back by Spice, during which he set the race’s fastest lap, brought fifth place.
Having raced in a selection of historic series in the intervening period, the Capri is now in the custodianship of James Vickers. Still resplendent in its period Belga livery and having had a comprehensive restoration, CC13 will be a star attraction in the Gerry Marshall Trophy, especially with Signor Ravaglia at the wheel.
Roberto Ravaglia’s major victories include:
1985 Spa 24 Hours
1986 European Touring Car Champion
1987 World Touring Car Champion; Macau Guia
1988 European Touring Car Champion; Spa 24 Hours
1989 German Touring Car Champion (DTM); Nürburgring 24 Hours
1990 Italian Touring Car Champion
1991 Italian Touring Car Champion
1993 Italian Touring Car Champion
1994 Spa 24 Hours
1995 Nürburgring 24 Hours

The Pays des Écrins, a different vision of the mountains

Adventures garanteed!

Puy Saint Vincent culminating at an altitude of 2700 metres and Pelvoux-Vallouise at 2300 metres, are two ski resorts offering some great winter sports.

The first location, Puy Saint Vincent boasts  75 kilometres of slopes ranging between 2700 and 1400 metres,  which include treelined and open areas with a 360° degree view of the most beautiful summits of the Écrins.

25 kilometres of slopes – ranging from 2300 metres to 1200 metres awaits skiiers in Pelvoux-Vallouise, including a downhill run of over 1000 metres in a natural setting,  that can be completed in one go.

The advantage of these two resorts is its vast offer of free skiing tracks . One can experience tracks in a natural, protected environment. The Pays des Écrins is a discreet spot for freeriding. The off-piste areas are accessible from the ski lifts, but at the skier’s own risk, for a 1500 metre drop in altitude.

Skiing instructor  Fabien Rulfo says: “for freeskiing and freeriding, it’s the Col du Bal in Puy Saint Vincent. Accompanied by an instructor, this descent features a significant drop in altitude and exceptional terrain”. Beyond merely teaching skiing, Fabien seeks toshare his appreciation of a spot. Understanding the landscape helps to anticipate and provide a better ski experience. “The idea is to learn a fun and pleasing way to descend a mountain by understanding the terrain to get the most enjoyment out of it and being free to perform the simplest or most complicated figures”.

In his opinion, the advantages of the area are varied. “The Pays des Écrins’ resorts have a multitude of hidden, secret spots both on and off the slopes. Depending on weather conditions, one of them will always be accessible. The larch trees that are abundant up to 2000 metres make it possible to ski in bad weatherconditions and the strong sunshine makes for pleasant skiing throughout the winter season”.

The “Derby de Vallouise” on 25th March 2017: two runs, two domains.

A steep, festive descent is on the agenda! The younger version of the Derby de laMeije will be taking place in the Pays des Écrins for the first time. What makes it special? Participants will need to tackle the slopes of both resorts in the Pays desÉcrins including a 1550 m drop for Puy Saint Vincent and 1100 m drop for the Pelvoux-Vallouise resort. The “Derby de Vallouise” is a race that combines all types of winter sports, with participants aged 16 and over. All the following sports will be represented and organised by category and gender: skiing, telemark skiing, snowboarding, in fancy dress and other means (sledge, mountain bike, cross country skis, rubber rings, etc.)
There will also be a youth category (for under 18s). The goal is to start from the highest point of each resort and reach the lowest point as quickly as possible enjoying a fun atmosphere throughout the day. Registration: Association “MADIJIHU”

Tel. +33 (0)7 83 66 90 11 www.derbydelavallouise.com

Natural ice climbing  – The Pays des Écrins is one of the most spectacular ice climbing sites in Europewith over 300 waterfalls freezing to become ice falls. When winter sets in, the deep valleys are at their best. This is particularly the case for the Fournel and Fressinières valleys.

Winter mountaineering – Most professional mountain guides offer this activity that teaches the alpine progression and safety techniques used during high mountain ascents. The aim is to cover ice and snow routes, combining ice falls and snow ski mountaineering. For all these activities, mountain guides offer individual and group outings.

Why choose the Pays des Écrins?           Two resorts –          Three Nordic areas and high mountains nearby –          Eight typical mountain villages –          Skiing at bargain prices, (6-Day Galaxie pass in Puy Saint Vincent: Adult €165-Child €132, 6-Day pass in Pelvoux-Vallouise: Adult €79.30-Child €61.90)

Special offers at the resorts – “Ski holiday experience, for couples or friends”. From €359/person/week based on two paying. From €320/person/week based on three paying. (7 nights + 6-day pass + 6 days’ hire (Excluding €20 booking fee and optional insurance).

Information/Booking Tel. + 33 (0)4 92 23 58 55. www.puysaintvincent-reservation.com

The Pays des Écrins is an area steeped in history. The first mountaineering ascensions took place in the 19th century. There are signs of industrial historylinked to the silver mines and hydroelectricity. The presence of the Waldensians’in the Fressinières Valley from the 12th century highlight the area’s religious history and architectural history is illustrated with a large array of sundials and vernacular heritage typical of the alpine villages. The valleys, villages, pastures and high mountains bathe in sunshine and are located between the Durance river and the Barre des Écrins (4102 m).

www.paysdesecrins.com

How to get here: By plane, Turin Airport then by shuttle or car. By train, TGV Paris-Milan to Oulx then by shuttle, or the overnight train from Paris to l’Argentièreles Écrins.

* Off-piste skiing should be with mountain specialists, ski instructors or mountain guides and relevant equipment (transceiver, shovel, probe).

myLike – die App für clevere Entdecker

München, den 13.02.2017. Umgangssprachlich gesehen, ist weniger mehr. Diese Weisheit erweitert die App “myLike” nun um die Punkte ‘Finden statt suchen’ und ‘Speichern und bewerten. Denn gedacht ist mit der App, dass jeder nur das teilt, was er/sie will. und nur dann, wann man will. Laut den Erfindern sind die Massenratgeber eben nur das, schnelle Ratgeber für den Weg zum Bahnhof oder Restaurants in der Nähe
myLike will sich davon abheben. Denn, alle Informationen und Tipps, die hier zu
spannenden Entdeckungen verhelfen, stammen von Usern, die jeder, wenn er möchte, als Tippgeber bewusst zulässt.
“Die konsequente Umsetzung von Vertrauen, Relevanz und Schutz der Privatsphäre machen myLike einzigartig.

Oder auch die echten Freunde: denn die wissen im Zweifel am  besten, was zu einem passt. War der Restaurant-Tipp ein Treffer, lässt er sich bewerten, speichern und natürlich auch teilen.

Breathtaking machines to descend on Goodwood Motor Circuit

Three-Litre Sports-Prototype Monsters of the 1970s to Join High-Speed Demonstrations at 75th Members’ Meeting

10th February 2017: A breathtaking array of machines that dominated the international sportscar racing scene during the first half of the 1970s will descend on the Goodwood Motor Circuit for the 75th Members’ Meeting on March 18th-19th.
Exotic creations from Alfa Romeo, Chevron, Ferrari, Lola, Matra and Mirage will evoke memories of the factory battles that raged in the World Championship of Makes from 1972 when regulations mandated the use of three-litre engines.
These sensational sports-prototypes, essentially Grand Prix cars with all-enveloping, low-drag bodywork, will provide a visual and aural feast for spectators in a series of high-speed demonstrations during the fourth of the now-annual British Automobile Racing Club retrospectives.
Already confirmed are several of the flat-12 Ferrari 312PBs that were driven to numerous 1000km victories in 1972-’73 by aces Mario Andretti, Jacky Ickx, Arturo Merzario, Sandro Munari, Ronnie Peterson, Brian Redman, Clay Regazzoni and Tim Schenken.
Joining the Scuderia’s screamers will be a gaggle of French-blue Matra MS670s, the wailing V12-powered machines that took a hat-trick of Le Mans 24 Hour wins and dominated the 1974 season, winning all bar one of the 10 races courtesy of Gallic heroes Jean-Pierre Beltoise, Jean-Pierre Jarier, Gérard Larrousse and Henri Pescarolo.
Throw in the exquisite V8-engined Alfa Romeo T33s that occasionally gave Ferrari and Matra a fright during those halcyon days thanks to a quality roster of drivers including Andrea de Adamich, Vic Elford, Nanni Galli, Helmut Marko, Peter Revson and Rolf Stommelen, as well as the British-built, Gulf-liveried, Ford Cosworth DFV-motivated Mirages once pedalled by heroes Derek Bell, Howden Ganley, Mike Hailwood and Vern Schuppan, and plucky Chevron B26s and Lola T290s that picked up the period scraps, and it’ll make for an unmissable cocktail of noise and colour.
Goodwood Road and Racing Club Members can still buy tickets at http://www.goodwood.com and from the Goodwood Ticket Office on 01243 755 055. Non-Members can still attend as guests of GRRC Members or by joining our community of motorsport volunteers ahead of the event: https://www.goodwood.com/sports/motorsport/volunteering/

Glamping Urlaub im WiesenBett

8. Februar 2017 – Ab der kommenden Saison bietet WiesenBett an ausgewählten Standorten eine größere Auswahl an Anreisetagen mit einem Mindestaufenthalt von zwei Nächten an. Für Gäste, die 55 Jahre plus sind und  einen erholsamen Glamping Urlaub mit ihrem Partner oder den (Enkel-)Kindern im Visier haben, gibt es einen Rabatt von € 35,-.

Neue Reiseziele in 2017

Neue Standorte bereichern die WiesenBett Familie! In 2017 öffnen neue Bauernhöfe in Deutschland, Holland, Frankreich und Schottland.

Mitten in Schleswig-Holstein lädt Hof Viehbrook Collection zu einem entspannten Glamping Urlaub zwischen Nord- und Ostsee ein. Auf diesem denkmalgeschützten Bauernhof mit historischem Backhaus und alter Schmiede gibt es Landwirtschaft zum Anfassen.

Wer reif ist für die Insel, kann seinen nächsten Urlaub auf der westfriesischen Insel Ameland verbringen. Der malerische Bauernhof Hoeve Ameland, herrliche Strände und Dünen, das einzigartige Wattenmeer und ein typisch rot-weiß gestreifter Leuchtturm bieten eine traumhafte Urlaubskulisse.

Der erste WiesenBett Bauernhof in der Schweiz, der WiesenBett Collecton Wallis befindet sich auf 1500m ü. M. im wunderschönen Lötschental. Dort erwartet die Glamping-Gäste ein herrlich naturverbundenen Urlaub mitten in den Schweizer Bergen.

La Ferme de Ronfil ist der neue WiesenBett Bauernhof in der Normandie. Große Obstgärten mit alten Apfel- und Birnbäumen umgeben den Bio-Bauernhof aus dem siebzehnten Jahrhundert und in dem 300 Jahre alten Brotofen wird heute noch Brot gebacken.

In einer der beliebtesten Urlaubsregionen Schottlands können die WiesenBett Gäste versuchen das Geheimnis von Loch Ness zu lüften. Ganz in der Nähe des berühmten Sees lädt die Loch Ness Farm Collection zu einem Glamping Erlebnis in den Scottish Highlands ein.

Glamping ist eine Wortkreation aus “glamorous” und “Camping”. Wenn man an Camping denkt, kommen einem zunächst Dinge wie Zeltaufstellen, Luftmatratze, Gasherd und Gemeinschaftsduschen in den Sinn. WiesenBett dachte: Das können wir besser! Mit dem WiesenBett Glamping Konzept erlebt der Gast die gemütliche Atmosphäre des Campens, während er den Luxus eines Cottages genießt. Kein Stress beim Zeltaufbau, Ärger mit undichten Luftmatratzen oder Spaziergang mit einer Rolle Toilettenpapier über den Campingplatz, sondern der Luxus von hochwertigen Matratzen, einer gut ausgestatteten Küchenzeile und einer eigener Dusche und Toilette.

WiesenBett, die Glamping Pioniere

Als führender europäischer Anbieter von Glamping Urlaub, bietet WiesenBett luxuriöse Unterkünfte an den schönsten Orten in Deutschland, Holland, Belgien, Frankreich, Großbritannien und Irland . Das Motto lautet: zurück zum einfachen Leben, ohne Strom und Wi-Fi. Das WiesenBett-Konzept wurde vor 13 Jahren in den Niederlanden ins Leben gerufen und hat jetzt Tausende von Anhängern in ganz Europa, die sich einen ursprünglichen Urlaub mit totaler Entspannung wünschen.
