Corona Virus Information and Rules

The measures to contain the coronavirus in Austria have been eased, but a number of special safety measures apply. The „3G rule" (short for German “geimpft, getestet, genesen – vaccinated, tested, recovered“ ) is used to define low-risk groups in epidemiological terms. The „Green Pass“ confirms that you are tested, vaccinated or have recovered from Covid 19. Everyone over 6 years of age must comply with the 3G rule. This means that you can only enter the venue of the Cadillac BIG Meet and take part in the driving tour if you fulfil the "3G" rules. Also registration at the entrance is mandatory! Digital certificates can be used. (on your Smartphone for example!) 

The following rules apply if you have been vaccinated against Covid-19:
  • The first vaccination is valid under the 3G rule from the 22nd day for a maximum of three months, counted from the day of vaccination.
  • The second vaccination (booster shot) extends this period for  further 270 days .
  • If the vaccine you received requires no booster shot (e.g. Johnson & Johnson), the first vaccination is valid for the 3G rule from the 22nd day after the vaccination for a total of nine months. Again, the nine months are counted from the day of vaccination.
  • If you have recovered from Covid-19 and received your first vaccination, you are in the 3G group for nine months from the day of vaccination.

If you have recovered from Covid-19, you do not have to test for the virus for six months from the end of the infection. You need your quarantine order or a medical certificate from your doctor to prove you have recovered from the infection. A positive test for antibodies neutralising the virus is valid for three months from the date of testing.

Tests remain valid for different periods of time:
  • PCR tests are valid for 72 hours from the time of taking the sample.
  • Antigen tests carried out by an authorised body are valid for 48 hours from the time of taking the sample.
  • Antigen self tests are valid for 24 hours in Upper Austria.

The Tenth Cadillac Big Meet at Schloss Kremsegg, Kremsmünster, Austria
Sunday, August 24, 2014

Historic, scenic and beautiful Kremsmünster welcomes you!
For a whole decade now, the friendly little town of Kremsmünster has been the location for the Cadillac Big Meet. And for a handful of those years, we were able to proudly announce that the city of Kremsmünster is co-organizer of the Big Meet!
It is a fine moment when the iconoclastic cultural heritage as presented by Cadillac, the pinnacle of automotive and stylistic engineering in its day, is allowed to assimilate with the historic heritage as presented by Kremsmünster.

The pleasing castle grounds of Schloss Kremsegg remain the place to be for everyone admiring the Cadillac car - one area exclusively Cadillacs, the adjoining area for all USA and classic cars.
In regards to the show field, it is now the largest yet : plenty of space to park your Cadillac, as well as enjoy the other Cadillacs, allowing breathing space between the cars for photographing, filming, or just gazing at them in quiet admiration.

So it's clear that, if you have a Cadillac or are lusting after one, on August 24, 2014, Kremsmünster, Austria is the place to be.
This year's special theme is the Cadillac Milestone Cars. More info on this years spotlight can be found on our website :
Of course, we welcome all the fantastic Cadillacs of all other models as well, fully restored or all-original, old and new alike.

On Saturday August 23rd, the Kremsmünster event kicks off with a cruise through the scenic countryside. Please decide swiftly if you'd like to join in!
But the big day will be Sunday when Cadillacs meet in the Park of the Kremsegg Castle.
Important to note is that everybody is welcome, no pre-registrations necessary (except for the Saturday cruise of course). Just drive up to the castle gates and enter Cadillac Heaven!

The Big Meet is also free for visitors – good to know if your Cadillac is being restored, or if you still haven’t come across that dream car you’re lusting after… maybe you'll find it here?

Kremsmünster is located about 30km southwest of Linz, Austria.

Here is the official press release from Cadillac Europe:

Cadillac Beauties Never Die

Kremsmünster, Austria – In its 110 year history, Cadillac built more iconic vehicles than any of its competitors in the luxury car segment. This has once again been impressively demonstrated at the annual Cadillac Big Meet in Kremsmünster, Austria. Over 80 Cadillacs from the nineteen forties to the present day have been put on show and many of them were awarded with prices from a distinguished international jury. Even with this year’s number of cars below it’s record mark of 150 – due to the rather unfavorable weather situation – Kremsmünster is still regarded as the largest annual Cadillac meeting in Europe. It is open to all Cadillac owners, regardless of age and history of the vehicle. This year, the special focus was on cars from the nineteen seventies, represented by 20 cars from this decade, with the Eldorado convertibles clearly outnumbering other body styles.Organizer Georg Pfeiffer and moderator Ulla Theussl handed over the trophies in pouring rain this year – but the weather could not dampen the enthusiasm of the participants and the spectators.Cadillac has been a leading luxury auto brand since 1902. In recent years, Cadillac has engineered a historic renaissance led by artful engineering and advanced technology.
