3ma 2016

  131 story







14-17 May 2010

Loßburg, Black Forest, Germany

As 2009 draws to an end and with the wonderful memories of 3ma09 in Turin still indelibly engraved in our minds, we've been very busy planning and organising next year's 131 jaunt which will take place in Germany's Black Forest area.


We've chosen Loßburg, a town in the district of Freudenstadt in Baden-Württemberg in southern Germany and in the heart of the Black Forest, as our base for 3ma10. The area is a climatic health resort of international renown and being on a high plateau within the Black Forest mountains, it is well-known for its fresh air. The river Neckar, celebrated for its scenic charm, flows through the south-eastern part of the district. Its hilly banks are covered with fine vineyards, orchards, and woods. It is navigable for 1,000-ton barges and is connected to the Danube by a canal. There are more than 20 hydroelectric power plants on the river.


Our 3ma10 organising team in Germany have been very busy contacting many hotels in the area as well as planning our driving routes and other activities.


We have now chosen the Traube Hotel and Restaurant in Lossburg as our accommodation for 3ma10. Fully refurbished in 2008, the hotel has 37 comfortably furnished, non-smoking, en suite rooms equipped with a range of modern amenities. The hotel also boasts a spa area which features a sauna, a solarium, a massage studio and a beauty parlour.

We have negotiated a special inclusive deal for dinner, bed and breakfast and we'll also have free reserved and exclusive parking for our 131s. Please see details of our special 3ma10 hotel deal in the Travel & Accommodation section of our website and ensure you book your rooms early to avoid disappointment as alternative accommodation in the area is limited.


With the hotel deal finalised, our German organising team have turned their attention to planning our driving routes and other activities for the 4 days of 3ma10. For the first time next year we propose to have "themed" days and drives. So one day will be themed "water" with visits to  Triberg waterfalls, Titisee, Schluchsee and possibly even the Rhine Falls in Switzerland. For the "mountain" theme day we could visit  Feldberg and  Schauinsland and for the "car museum" theme day we have a choice of the Marxzell, the Unimog Museum or the  Schramberg. Our fourth themed day is still in the very early planning stages so we'll keep the details of this one as a surprise!


We are very much looking forward to 3ma10 and to meeting all of our friends from the previous three 3ma meetings. We are of course also looking forward to making lots of new 3ma friends at 3ma10.
