thesmartclub Hambach visits 2001 to 2018

Our very first visit to smartville Hambach was way back in 2001 and even now, many of our Members are still participating in our annual pilgrimage!

For 2018, you can be part of something very special.

Not only are we including smart's 20th Anniversary event on 30th June but, prior to that event, we'll be including a visit to the BRABUS production facilities in Bottrop, Germany.  We're also providing you with accommodation in Bottrop, Germany and accommodation in Saarbrucken Germany for the entire week plus we're including meals, parking and ferry crossings!

What makes this even more special is, after an amazing 18 years, this will be 

thesmartclub's LAST EVER VISIT to smartville, Hambach

It's quite a milestone moment and one in which, we are sure, many of our regular participants would love to be a part of.

Better still, we're also including special commemorative Polo Shirts as part of the Package - it's not to be missed.

BUT FIRST - a quick look back ...
