New Volkswagen Beetle stars in Travemünde

Volkswagen fans from around the world, some as far as China, descended on the Baltic Sea beach of Travemünde at the weekend to experience the seventh Beetle Sunshine Tour.

Apart from a roller coaster and three live bands there to entertain the crowds, this year’s theme was “Tour of the generations” which saw early air-cooled models sitting alongside their modern-day, water-pumping siblings. Guest star was, of course, the new 21st Century Beetle.

When the original was launched in 1938, it was known simply as ‘the Volkswagen’, but quickly acquired a raft of affectionate nicknames from across the world. Whatever you call it, its popularity has never been in question, with 21.5 million sold in the past 73 years. Long may it live on.
