Dream Trips at Caravan Salon
The fascination of caravanning: Germany’s Allgäu region, the Baltic and St Petersburg, Lake Baikal and Mongolia, the Heart of France, the Pan-American Highway – from Tierra del Fuego to the Caribbean and a campervan tour from Düsseldorf to Beijing
The Dream Tour Cinema at Caravan Salon (26 August to 3 September 2017) has become quite an institution. Year on year it arouses enthusiasm with the most spectacular images and breathtaking footage. As in the past, our Dream Tour trio – Janette Emerich, Konstantin Abert and Uwe Hamm – have compiled an exciting programme. On each day of the trade fair they will be presenting six multi-vision shows of some fascinating caravanning trips to far-away countries. Visitors to this year’s Caravan Salon can look forward to the following destinations: Germany’s Allgäu region – winter camping in the Alps, the Baltic and St Petersburg, Lake Baikal and Mongolia, the Heart of France – a campervan tour from the Loire Valley to the Atlantic, the Pan-American Highway – from Tierra del Fuego to the Caribbean, and a trip from Düsseldorf to Beijing: travelling by land to the Middle Kingdom.
The multi-vision show is held daily, at one-hour intervals at the Dream Tour Cinema (conference room 10.1 in Hall 10) from 10:30 to 16:30 hrs. All these shows are covered by the CARAVAN SALON ticket.

Allgäu – Winter Camping in the Alps
Germany has recently seen a significant rise in campervan travellers. After all, there are so many great places which are just waiting to be discovered. This year our Dream Tour specialists will be presenting a German gem: the beautiful Allgäu region – in a somewhat unusual season, though. But who says that camping is impossible in winter? So our travellers loaded up their campervan, and off they went! For several weeks they roamed the region between Lake Constance and Obersdorf, climbed snow-clad mountain peaks in the Allgäu Alps, watched a sledge maker at work as he made horned
sledges, learned how to embroider traditional leather trousers, went on walks around some picturesque mountain villages and visited the famous royal palaces near Füssen. They captured the unique beauty of this holiday region in some amazing photographs and video footage, showing that there is a special charm about a trip to this region in winter.
The Heart of France – a Campervan Tour from the Loire Valley to the Atlantic
When we think of France, we spontaneously associate it with good wine, the Eiffel Tower in the city of love, and sunshine on the Côte d’Azur. Yet France has a lot more to offer, and what could be a better way to explore its magnificent landscapes than in a campervan? Janette Emerich whisks her audience away on a highly varied campervan tour that appeals to all five senses. Her imagery is strikingly eloquent, and so are the stories she tells as she conveys the savoir vivre of France. Starting out from Alsace, the trip takes her via the Grand Ballon and the mustard city of Dijon to the Loire Valley. The romantic castles and palaces of the Loire are like diamonds, and the gigantic Château Chambord, the water castle of Chennonceau and the luxurious gardens at Château Villandry are particularly worth visiting. The Dream Tour Cinema takes the visitor through historic tuff stone cellars, vineyards and mysterious limestone caves with stalactites and stalagmites.
