Driving Tour 2016

The 2016 Driving Tour on August 27th 2016 will go through the famous "Salzkammergut".
Starting in Kremsmünster at 9:30am at the Hotel Schicklberg, we will drive in a very long Cadillac convoy towards the lake "Traunsee" up to a small mountain which will reward us with breathtaking views down the lake into the Alps.
We will have lunch up there.
Later we will drive along the shores of the lake to our next destination on the "Attersee" - one of the largest lakes in Austria where we will have coffee.
We will then head back to Kremsmünster for dinner in the Hotel Schicklberg.
This years driving tour will be around 100 miles long.
Here are some pictures to give you an idea what you can expect in 2016. We shot the pictures during a test of the tour today.

New Venue for the 2016 Cadillac BIG Meet!

The 2016 Cadillac BIG Meet will be held at a new venue!
There will be some major construction work going on our old venue at the park of the Kremsegg Castle in 2016, therefore the park will not be available for the Cadillac BIG Meet. Luckily we found a new, even better location in Kremsmünster where the Meeting can take place. It´s a very nice park called "Hofwiese". It will give us some very nice opportunities to display our cars there.
We are looking forward to the new venue and hope to see you all in 2016.
The new venue is located here: Gablonzerstaße 15, 4550 Kremsmünster, Austria

2014 - Press release

* * * Celebrating our first Decade : The 2014 Cadillac Big Meet * * *


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 : http://www.cadillac-meeting.com/english/program/spotlight/index.html
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.

Thanks a lot for sharing it with us and for supporting the Cadillac BIG Meet!!!

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.
