SAIL 2020 mit Pagoden

The start of the 40th International Annual Meeting will take place in Bremen old town area), Bremen's so-called good parlour. We will spend the night in the ATLANTIC Grand Hotel Bremen (old town location), directly in the centre of Bremen and only 100 meters away from the Weser. This is also where the Alexander von Humboldt (the Beck's ship with the green sails) has its berth. In the evening we meet for a dinner at the "Club zu Bremen" in the historic "Haus Schütting", directly at the market place. After dinner we take a cultural walk through the nightly city of Bremen (city tour of approx. 1.5 hours duration).

Pre-programme Friday, 21 August 2020

For Friday, 21 August, we have prepared the following pre-programmes:

Visit of the Airbus factory

SAIL 2020 mit Pagoden

Tour through the Mercedes-Benz plant

Bremen is the birthplace of Borgward and the legendary Isabella, whose era unfortunately came to an end at the beginning of the 60s. Since then Mercedes-Benz has established itself in Bremen as a successful successor, whose car production in Bremen began with the T-Model W 123. In 1989 the production of the R 129 started, the last full convertible of Mercedes-Benz and in 2014 the Mercedes-Benz plant Bremen celebrated 25 years of SL-Roadster production, which still exists today and hopefully for a long time to come.

Visit of the Weserstadion


The Weserstadion can also be visited (stadium tour). Take a look at the Weserstadion and behind the scenes of Werder Bremen.

River trip (only for co-drivers) to Bremerhaven or a walk through the city centre of Bremen


If you don't have to drive a car, you have the alternative of covering the distance from Bremen to Bremerhaven with an excursion boat, enjoying the amenities of a river cruise and letting the beauty of the landscape slip past you.

Friday 21 August, 2020

Drive to Bremerhaven

Isabella 110

At 12:30pm we start from the parking lot of the Mercedes-Benz factory to the 20th "Sail" to Bremerhaven. The Bremen police will escort us with a Borgward "Isabella" directly to our hotel ship "MS ASTOR".

All those who do not take part in the pre-programme can arrange the morning themselves and, for example, make visits and sightseeing. At 12:30pm they can join the other participants either at the Mercedes Benz plant or at the "Fahrwiese" car park on the A 27 from Bremen to Bremerhaven (after exit 18 "Bremen-Überseestadt"). This is recommended, because Friday will be a strong arrival day for the "Sail".

Bremerhaven is regarded as a seaside town on the North Sea and lies at the estuaries of the Weser and Geeste rivers. Bremerhaven and Fisch used to belong together. In the course of time, however, changes have not stopped at Bremerhaven. Today Bremerhaven can boast the largest connected container transshipment facility in Europe and is the world's largest transshipment centre for automobiles. But Bremerhaven has even more to offer, including the German Emigration Centre, the Klimahaus, the "Zoo by the Sea" and much more.

Sail in Bremerhaven

SAIL 2020 mit Pagoden

Almost at the same time as our 40th annual meeting the "Sail" takes place in Bremerhaven. The "Sail" is an international sailboat parade, which takes place every five years since 1986 as a recurring big event and attracts many visitors from near and far. This is a first-rate highlight. Therefore we will also organize the annual meeting maritime by booking the cruise ship "MS ASTOR" instead of a hotel, which will be located at the cruise terminal in Bremerhaven.

On board the MS Astor

The check-in on the "MS ASTOR" is possible from 3:00pm.

Afterwards we continue in the ASTOR Lounge with show, dance, music and entertainment. Through our beverage package we get coffee, cocktails and other drinks all day long.

Saturday, 22 August 2020

If you like, you can go for a ride with the pagodas along the Weser and Elbe estuaries, through the Wurster Land and through the Cuxhavener Küstenheide to Cuxhaven on Saturday, 22.08.2020 (food and drinks are free) or personally do something else (e.g. visit the "Sail").

As an alternative to the exit to Cuxhaven, you can also do this:

In the evening the gala dinner will take place on the ship at 6:30pm, which will be finished in time before the big fireworks of the "Sail" and which can be watched from the ship. Next to the fireworks there will be a laser show.
