So the venue for the Germany meet has been sorted and the dates set.

The venue is here ....................... Harz Mountains.

http://www.domaene-stiege.de/Anfahrt

Dates are Friday June 14th to Sunday June 16th.

I suppose I will be travelling out on Tuesday 11th and back on Monday 17th if anyone is interested.
Will likely do something like Tuesday and Wednesday night in Belgium, and/or Wednesday and Thursday in Germany, Friday and Saturday night at the Treffen, Sunday night travelling back and catch a crossing on Monday.

I wonder if I could get away with claiming this as my stag-do before getting married the following month... although convincing her that spending £280 on petrol for a weekend might be tricky :whatsthat

Don't tell her, :laugh
I used 210 litres of fuel a week ago going to the alps and back, worth every penny, :thumbup
I'll probably be similar travelling wise as this year, thurs Friday to venue, Sunday Monday back, might have a look at the overnight crossing to holland a bit earlier this time to see if its viable for the weds night.

I'm pretty sure i'll be in for this trip again. Not sure if i'll take a whole week off but at the very minimum will do as Gazza suggested above which is pretty much what some of us done this year anyways.

Harwich to hook of Holland, weds 12th June. 11.00pm crossing arrives in Holland 08.00am, with a single cabin, £111.00. Less if sharing a cabin, I'm up for it, saves booking a hotel for the weds eve, either in Dover,France or Belgium.
Just need to book a return ferry from Calais or Dunkirk for the Monday, I'm aware this is a little further for Geoff from darn sarf, but he can't have the easy route al l the time. :laugh :laugh

Just under 600 km from hook of Holland to the venue,

Yea, it might be 360 - 370 miles but still 6 hours in the saddle by motorway, add an hour and a half for 4 fuel stops too......... yes do-able but a long ride.

Are you thinking of a stop over for the Thursday night then?

Of course as I'd already stated Thursday/Friday to get to the venue, and I don't intend sitting on a fackin motorway all the way there Ted. :laugh
Some lovely roads to ride in northern Germany, not sure about some of Holland but ill give it a go, :thumbup

Cost wise I think it would be cheaper to go with a return on the Calais shuttle on the Thursday to Monday.
Not really my cup of tea.

Might be a nice change to take the overnight ferry.
But then about 6 to 7 hours off motorway to the Osnabruck area then around 4 or 5 hours off motorway to the venue?

I think I might prefer an extra day(s) and still stay off motorway but have somewhat less hours in the saddle.

Stenaline ferry say ATM, it would be £190 for 2 riders, 2 bikes and an inside cabin plus breakfast - one way. They also said wait until January sale where it could be up to 20% cheaper.



Obviously you have the return journey to add to that. I think the shuttle would be around £40 one way.

I have an e-mail from the German TL site asking us to book rooms as soon as possible as the venue will not reserve the rooms any longer.

I don't recognize it ted. Don't think I've been there.

I don't mind taking my tent tbh. Looks like a nice campsite to me. But do some research on the rooms if you like. We will need to get confirmed participants early if you need to book rooms.

I meant that it looks the same because it was constructed / used in the former East Germany (as a collective) the same as Groschwitz was, they are in the same "area" and roughly 100 miles apart. Not that I / we have been there before.

Ted, if you can check the cost options for the rooms and post it up I’ll happily commit either way. Like Gazza said though, the location looks good, if the facilities are decent then camping a few nights could be an option if we can’t get rooms

I am seriously thinking about this option now, I want to get the ferry out booked sooner rather than later, as when I looked for this year it was already fully booked, who else is interested,
