20 years CARAVAN SALON

CARAVAN SALON is in top form just in time for its 20th anniversary: From 31 August to 08 September, approximately 600 exhibitors present over 2,100 leisure vehicles for every taste and every budget on 214,000 square metres of exhibition space. In 13 halls and on the open-air grounds, visitors will find accessories, fittings, tents, mobile homes, holiday destinations as well as camping and motorhome sites. The special "Caravaning Sports" celebrates its premiere. Here, vehicles will be presented that are particularly suitable for combining sporting activities with a holiday on four wheels. For many years, however, tradition has been the Dream Tour cinema, which takes you to France, Mongolia, Panamericana, Japan, Norway, Russia and on an adventure trip to Australia this year. 

Fun and Action for Kids

And the youngest will also get their money’s worth at this year’s CARAVAN SALON. As in previous years, our younger visitors are in for a great programme with join-in activities, fun, games and highlights galore. “Stadtsportbund Düsseldorf” (City Sports Association) will convert part of the outdoor area into a thrilling Adventure Park. Children and youths are invited to let off steam here pursuing the versatile fun and sports activities on offer. A climbing wall, the Time-Run, a surf simulator, to name but a few attractions, are awaiting those little adventurers. 

Bike Show featuring Danny MacAskill

Another spectacular attraction is professional biker and Eberspächer brand ambassador Danny MacAskill staging his Bike Trial show on the first weekend (Saturday and Sunday at 1.30 pm and 4.30 pm). Danny MacAskill is considered the best-known biker in the world – he is not only a real biking professional but also a star in the community and a YouTube icon. With his team the Scot will present an action-packed show with breath-taking bike stunts and jumps on the outdoor concourse (between Halls 9 and 17) as part of his Drop and Roll Tour. On top of this, there will be an autograph session on both days at 3.00 pm at Eberspächer in Hall 13 / booth A11. 

On the outdoor area in front of Hall 5 the “E-Bike Parcours” will give visitors the opportunity to test the driving characteristics of e-bikes, e-scooters as well as eco-movers on a separate concourse. 

CARAVAN SALON Routes 

Visitors can make their trip to the CARAVAN SALON a special experience and “explore” the history and industrial culture of the Ruhr Valley driving on one of Germany’s most interesting holiday routes. The “Route der Industriekultur” is approx. 400 kilometres long and takes you to the industry-culture gems on the rivers Emscher and Lippe. Forming the core elements of this route are 25 so-called anchor points including such important museums as the German Mining Museum in Bochum, 13 settlements dating back to different eras as well as 17 viewpoints referred to as “Panoramas of Industryscape”. In cooperation with Ferienstrassen.Info Messe Düsseldorf has put together attractive tours for travelling to Düsseldorf – the CARAVAN SALON Routes.
