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 Cadillac BIG Meet organisation team test-drove this years driving tour. Here are a few impressions of what you can expect this year. Make sure to register soon!



The Cadillac BIG Meet Organization Team met yesterday to discuss the situation about the 2021 meeting.
We came to the conclusion that we can go ahead with the meeting.
Covid restrictions will be eased in Austria in July for events. This makes it possible for the Cadillac BIG Meet to be held!



Due to the ongoing Covid19 crisis the Austrian government does not put out permits for all events until at least the end of August 2020. Therefore we are not allowed to have a Cadillac BIG Meet in 2020. We have postponed the event to 2021 and hope to see you all in good health in the August of 2021. Stay safe and healthy!


This is the 2021 Flyer: (The 2020 event had to be postponed due to the Corona crisis to 2021)

The Cadillac BIG Meet is Europes biggest Cadillac Meeting. Its held every second year and it draws visitors from all over the world into the old Austrian city of "Kremsmünster".

The theme this year was the "1967 - 1970 Eldorados" which we featured in a special exhibition at the venue.

Weather forecast for the weekend was catastrophic after one of the driest summers we ever had. This caused some cancellations of participants and we were pretty nervous that many more would cancel their attendance. On friday evening quite a few super nice cars had already arrived at the hotel.

The Driving Tour

At the Driving Tour on saturday August 25th 45 Cadillacs attended. We drove from Kremsmünster to Feldkirchen where we had lunch at a very nice restaurant at the shores of a small lake.

Super nice 1953 Eldorado at the driving tour.

We then continued our tour to Linz where the cars were displayed underneath an art museum where the cars drew a lot of attention.

Stop at the Lentos Museum in Linz

On the way back to Kremsmünster it started to rain heavily and it did not stop until sunday noon.

The Meeting on Sunday

Due to the bad weather we had far less Cadillacs in attendance this year. Lot of regular visitors stayed home as well.

There was still a great mood at the meeting with lots of spectacular Cadillacs attending.
Check out our vast image galleries of the Driving Tour and the Meeting on the Cadillac BIG Meet website to see some fantastic cars you wont see anywhere else.
We had a great time there and enjoyed meeting all these great Cadillac aficionados and admire their fantastic cars.

See you again August 22nd - 23rd 2020!
