Appealing locations for events, concerts & co.

MOTORWORLD Köln-Rheinland offers a wide array of possibilities

In the spring of 2018, Motorworld Köln-Rheinland will be opening in the Ossendorf district of Cologne on the grounds and in the halls of the former Butzweilerhof airport. It will become not only a vibrant hub of mobile passion, but also an appealing event location. The historical site, where visitors will be able to experience the contemporary history of mobility on land and in the air, offers a wide array of possibilities for large and small events and conferences, as well as for special formats such as concerts, trade fairs, or even film shootings. It is already possible to book Motorworld Köln-Rheinland for events even before it has opened.

The historical Hangar II is the absolute gem where events at Motorworld Köln-Rheinland are concerned. Up to 4,000 people can be accommodated in the former aircraft hangar, which is currently being refurbished and fitted out with state-of-the-art event systems. The conference and seminar rooms, between twelve and 300 square metres in size, also offer variable uses. All of the multifunctional rooms are technically perfectly equipped, while the creative possibilities for organisers in the outdoor areas will be almost boundless as well. With a total area of 50,000 square metres, Motorworld Köln-Rheinland will be one of the largest and most versatile event venues for well beyond the immediate region. Visitors and guests can also book a comfortable stay in the V8 Hotel@Motorworld Köln-Rheinland, which is situated on the grounds and offers 110 design and theme rooms. The selected catering, rental furnishing and technical partners are already preparing themselves for a colourful range of events, so that they will be able to offer on-site every possible service that is needed for an all-round successful event.

500 free parking spaces and good transport network links – the site connects directly to the A1 and A57 motorways – are further ingredients that the revived location will be adding to the mix to enhance its suitability as a premium event venue.

Whether for major happenings, customer events, or private celebrations: Motorworld Köln-Rheinland will soon be the perfect location for staging unique experiences – right in the midst of an entire world of mobile passion.

Profile of MOTORWORLD Köln-Rheinland Motorworld Köln-Rheinland, situated on the site and in the buildings of the former Butzweilerhof airport in Cologne, will span a fascinating bridge between the past, the present, and the future of mobility. For Cologne is the birth city of a pioneering invention: In 1876, Nikolaus August Otto invented the four-stroke engine in the Deutz district of Cologne. This marked the begin of global motorisation. The location thus both bore witness to this historical event, as well as itself being steeped in history. Butzweilerhof was once, at the beginning of the 20th century, home to the majestic Zeppelin airships, in the 1920s “Luft Hansa” was based here, and in its heyday it was the aviation hub of the West.

Covering an area of more than 50,000 square metres, the site will soon offer more than enough space for historic and more modern motoring treasures. Owners of vintage and classic cars and modern classics, through to luxury cars and motorbikes, will have the possibility of storing their vehicles in fitting surroundings in glass boxes. Dealers in exclusive automobiles, specialised workshops, as well as shops for supplies and accessories, will also breathe life back into the historical building. An outstanding highlight of this world of mobility will be the private collection of Michael Schumacher, which will find a new home at Motorworld as a permanent exhibition showcasing numerous vehicles and memorabilia of the seven-time Formula One world champion. Motorworld Köln-Rheinland will be open all year round with free admission for every visitor.

About the MOTORWORLD Group The independent Motorworld Group emerged from the Dünkel Holding, based in Schemmerhofen, Baden-Württemberg. It develops, builds and operates experience worlds dedicated to mobile passion. The first location was Motorworld Region Stuttgart in Böblingen, which opened in 2009 and has since been expanded several times. Further projects and activities under the MOTORWORLD® brand have been initiated in recent years. Three other sites following on the same concept as Motorworld Region Stuttgart are currently under construction: Motorworld München, Motorworld Köln-Rheinland, and Motorworld Zeche Ewald-Ruhr (Herten). Additionally, the start signal was recently given for a further location on the Spanish island of Majorca. Yet another concept with a focus on handicrafts will result in the two cottage industry sites Motorworld Manufaktur Berlin and Motorworld Metzingen. The Motorworld idea also regularly goes on tour, including to the annual classic car trade fairs Motorworld Classics Berlin and Motorworld Classics Bodensee, the Motorworld Classic Car Days at Fürstenfeld (near Munich), as well as in numerous other guises.
