Faaker See, Austria – September 8-13,2015
Join us in Austria as the annual European Bike Week® comes of age. There’s only one way to end the European rally season – with European Bike Week®, arguably the most hotly anticipated event in the biker calendar. This year, for the 18th time, the picturesque Lake Faak in Carinthia, Austria will once again be brought to life with the rumble of Harleys.
Sending the 2015 season out with a bang, Europe’s biggest open and free motorcycle event attracts around 100,000 visitors, who come to revel among fellow bikers to enjoy six days of music, shopping, ride-outs and terrific camaraderie.
From Tuesday to Sunday the region is bustling with people who love all things Harley-Davidson. The centre of all this activity is the Harley Village, where you can admire the latest models, visit the Customiser Area, pick up that sought-after accessory and check out the various bars and stands – all with something special to catch your eye!
Favourites such as the Custom Bike Show will return, with dozens of masterful mechanics showing off their bespoke creations, as well as the electrifying array of exciting bands and artists performing a wide array of music to keep the party going well into the night. From the main stage to the bars and cafes, there will be plenty of musical variety to keep you entertained. And don’t forget to join in Saturday’s Parade, where thousands of bikes will wend their way through the Carinthian countryside – or just find a sunny spot to watch the procession in all its glory.
About the event
Back in 1998, Harley-Davidson® roared into Carinthia for the very first time, to celebrate the 95th anniversary of the Motor Company. In the 16 years since, it is amazing what European Bike Week® has accomplished; it now ranks among Europe’s biggest and best motorcycle events.
After starting the riding season with our regular Euro Festival event in the Golfe de St Tropez, we sign off in style with the grandest event of them all, and one that has become a real ‘must’ on the calendar of many of our most loyal customers.
There is an amazing schedule of events to suit all tastes, and a music line-up to savour – whatever era or genre you prefer, there will be something to please your ears. If you prefer a more laid-back experience, the Farmers’ Market has some amazing local products to savour, or perhaps enjoy a cocktail in the new bar?
Whatever you choose to do this week, enjoy, ride safe, and, more importantly, have fun!
