Angela Merkel to visit Eurobike

German Chancellor to attend opening day of world’s biggest bike show

On Wednesday 28 August 2013, German Chancellor Angela Merkel will attend the opening day of the Eurobike, the international bicycle trade show at Lake Constance.


The Federal Chancellery has announced that the Chancellor will take about two hours to officially open the Eurobike and to get to know the latest trends and innovations from around the biking world during a tour of the show. Mobility on two wheels, E-Bikes and city bikes are, after all, an important political topic.

“We are very pleased that the Chancellor is coming to Friedrichshafen for the Eurobike. This puts the topic of cycling and mobility in the center of the political and media spotlight”, said Klaus Wellman, CEO of Messe Friedrichshafen, Siegfried Neuberger, ZIV Managing Director, and Eurobike project leader Stefan Reisinger.

From August 28 to 31, 2013, the market players in the cycling industry will come from around the globe to meet in Friedrichshafen. New innovations and trends will be the focus of the show, and all of the market leaders will be at Lake Constance: More than 1,200 exhibitors, 40,000 industry visitors from over 100 countries, 20,000 consumers interested in cycling and just over 2,000 journalists are expected.

The exhibition at Lake Constance, the world’s leading bicycle trade show, is open on its first three days to industry visitors. On Sunday, August 31, the Eurobike will open its gates to all bike fans.
