European Bike Week 2021
SAVE THE DATE: 7th - 12th September 2021
Dear bikers and friends of European Bike Week and the Region Villach - Faaker See - Ossiacher See!
We are very happy to announce that, thanks to the commitments from Harley dealers and exhibitors from throughout Europe, there will again be a Harley Village around the grounds of the Farmers’ Market on Faaker See during European Bike Week this year from September 7-12.
In addition to the popular Farmers’ Market, the Carinthian Corner, the Harley Bar, and the Customizer Area, we are also planning concerts, custom bike shows, and demo rides.
And after last year’s great success, “the lake rocks” will happen again this year, which will provide just the right soundtrack for a fantastic biker event on Faaker See. All around the lake, pub gardens, large restaurant dining rooms, and open-air patios will be turned into small concert stages.
What’s more, the road around Faaker See will again become one-way for the duration of European Bike Week, which has proven successful over the years. And of course the shuttle buses will run as usual, bringing visitors from Villach to the lake.
Downtown Villach will join the fun, becoming Carinthia’s most beautiful living room during European Bike Week. Enlarged pub gardens, extraordinary decorations, and the spectacular Draupuls light and multimedia water show will create opportunities for other kinds of diversion and entertainment. And so that you can always park your ride right where the action is, VIP motorcycle parking spots will be organized in Villach’s pedestrian area during Bike Week.
As part of #BackToTheRoads, the Region Villach - Faaker See - Ossiacher See, in coordination with Drobollach tour specialist Harry Pucher, have put together a comprehensive program as a very special experience for the week of September 7-12. With the motto “Ride. Enjoy. Feel good.” Harry’s Bike Tours will offer extra special guided rides, which will be free with the Erlebnis Card.
All events will naturally take place in strict accordance with necessary current safety precautions. COVID testing stations on Faaker See and in Villach have been also prepared for many bikers.
